AbstractMost countries, in their internal legislation represented by constitutions or penal laws, exempt members of the House of Representatives from being subject to the penal code for considerations of public interest, with explicit provisions, to protect them against forms of abuse, threats and reprisals, whether by other authorities or by individuals. Therefore, members of Parliament may commit criminal acts in which the conditions for establishing penal responsibility are fulfilled, but the existence of immunity may prevent it from being established against them in an absolute and permanent manner to ensure that they express their opinions and ideas freely and independently, and it is called objective immunity here.
