Enrique Ricardo Lewandowski (Portuguese pronunciation: [ẽˈʁiki ʁiˈkaʁdu lɛvɐ̃ ˈdɔvski]; born 11 May 1948) is a Brazilian judge and former justice of the Supreme Federal Court of Brazil.[1] He's the son of a Polish father and Swiss mother, who immigrated to Brazil after the Second World War.[2]

Lewandowski presided over the impeachment trial of president Dilma Rousseff, and controversially separated the cassation of her term from the cassation of her political rights. Two votes, then, occurred, and, upon losing her mandate, she maintained her political rights. Vice President Michel Temer succeeded her.[citation needed]

Lewandowski was replaced by Cármen Lúcia who was championed by Celso de Mello, Brazil's most senior jurist. Lewandowski had been known for championing a reduction in oversight of judges and an increase in their remuneration. Lucia's champion gave a speech talking about the need to remove corruption despite the presence of a number of alleged suspects.[3]

On 10 January 2024, Lewandowski accepted president Lula da Silva's invitation to replace outgoing minister Flávio Dino in the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.[4]
