Law/Patents - Law (general)
Portuguese term or phrase: VIDE.INFO.NAO PA
context: this is part of a so called 'MOVIMENTAÇÃO PROCESSUAL' as part of the documentation for international cooperation in a criminal case. It could mean 'see information not...' but then I am stuck with the 'PA' Anyone?

See for instance:

VIDE.NO INFORMATION PROVIDED
Explanation:
Court Index - Court Criminal Records
courtindex.sdcourt.ca.gov/CISPublic/enterCase Number Search ... Additional information on older cases may be found on microfilm. ... THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ON AND OBTAINED FROM THIS WEBSITE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE THE OFFICIAL RECORD OF THE COURT.

Records - Welcome to the Clark County Courts in Las Vegas
www.clarkcountycourts.us/lvjc/records.htmlRequests for Court Criminal and Civil record information are processed as quickly ... The information provided will consist of the Name, Case Number, Charges, ...

PA is the abbreviation for power of attorney = procuração, a word linguistically related to procurado/a. (See L.G. Victorino, Glossário Jurídico (Barueri, SP: Disal, 2009). Hence, if no one looked for (procurou) the information, no information can be provided.

As tempting as it is to invent an abbreviation in English (i.e. VIDE.NO.INFO.PD), no such thing exists - at least not on Google.

Note: The starting point for my analysis was the article cited by Mark in his discussion entry.

An alternative: NO INFORMATION AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME, or, abbreviated, VIDE.INFO.N/A.AT THIS TIME, in which case, PA could well mean por agora.

I heard this expression while watching a late-night movie (after posting my original suggestion) and thought it might fit - so I did some research and it very well might. See detailed explanation on the following site:

Availability of Offender Information
svcalt.mt.gov/svor/availableinformation.aspPublic dissemination requirements for photo and other information about ... No Information Available – why the Registry may not have information on a particular [offender]...

A final note, and sorry to have done this in so many steps, but having been on proz for only a month, I'm still getting used to the boxes and correct etiquette. SO: This afternoon I called a friend, a former batallion commander with the military police in Rio. While not acquainted with the term /PA/, he said the logic was sound, for during criminal proceedings, information is often withheld to protect the offender, the victim, a witness, a lawyer, even the judge. On judicial order, it may be released at a future date, which is what makes the PA/AP (at present) important.

As a next step, I searched for an /at present/ acronym in English, and look what I found:

Unknown At Present - What does UAP stand for? Acronyms and ...
acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/Unknown+At+Present

So in a last attempt to create an expression similar to the original, how about VIDE.NO.INFO.AP ???
