Comparative law notes

Translator tip: the term "double jeopardy" can refer either to the prohibition of putting someone on trial twice for the same offense ("não bis in dem") or to the very fact of putting someone on trial twice for the same offense ("bis in idem"). To avoid confusion, we recommend translating "não bis in indem", "proibição do bis in idem" and "princípio do ne bis in idem" as "double jeopardy clause", "double jeopardy rule" or "protection against double jeopardy".
