Hélio Bicudo is an expert on human rights in Brazil and Latin America. 
   As a public attorney during Brazil's military regime, he was the first 
   lawyer to investigate and denounce the military death squads. He served
   as a Federal Deputy from his election in 1991 until January of 1999.  
   While in Congress, Bicudo was instrumental in presenting legislation to
   reform Brazil's judicial branch, public law enforcement, and the 
   penitentiary system. He established and served as president of the 
   Committee on Human Rights in the Chamber of Deputies. Most recently, he 
   was elected by the Organization of American States (OAS) to become a 
   member of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, of which he was  
   elected vice-president in 1999. He is the author of numerous books on human 
   rights, including Cem anos de direito e justiça no Brasil (One Hundred Years
   of Human Rights and Justice in Brazil).
