One of the principles guaranteed to the MPF by the Brazilian Constitution is that of functional independence. This means that each MPF member retains complete autonomy to exercise professional services on an individual basis. In this respect, members are not subject to orders from higher hierarchical levels within the MPF or any other governmental agency. Therefore, if several federal prosecutors bring a lawsuit simultaneously, they may take different positions and stances on the case.

The Prosecution Service of the Union (MPU) in Brazil comprises the Federal Prosecution Service (MPF), Labour Prosecution Service, Military Prosecution Service, and Prosecution Service of the Federal District and territories. The MPU and the Prosecutions Services in all states form the Brazilian Prosecution System.
In Brazil, the Prosecution Service is not part of the Executive, Legislative or Judicial branches, being totally independent. It cannot be terminated and its duties cannot be transferred to other government agencies. Prosecutors have their independence guaranteed by the Brazilian Constitution. Therefore, they are subordinated to an authority for administrative purposes only, but each member of the Prosecution Service is free to act according to their conscience and convictions under the law.
The MPF acts on those federal matters regulated by the Constitution and federal laws whenever public interest is involved, by virtue of the parties or of the matter itself. It is also the MPF’s responsibility to ensure compliance with the laws in force in Brazil, including international agreements. Furthermore, the MPF acts as a guardian of democracy, ensuring respect for principles and rules that guarantee popular participation.
