Possibility of Caboclo’s Return to STJD Fueling CBF Policy



Possibility of Caboclo's Return to STJD Fueling CBF Policy

The political environment at CBF has flared again over the possibility of the return of ousted President Rogerio Caboclo, who has been accused of sexual and moral harassment of an employee. STJD president, Otavio Noronha, is about to issue a decision on the warrant, in which the leader asks him to return. And this week should revolve around that measure.

In the current government, there are concerns about the favorable decision of the sports court in favor of Caboclo and, therefore, attempts to prevent his return. At the same time, the defenders of the president, who was removed from the KBF, believe that his removal has no legal basis under sports law.

Noronya is expected to make a decision on the case on Monday or this week at the latest. There is tremendous pressure on him. The STDJ president received Caboclo’s petition within a week at a meeting with his lawyers. After that, the case will be considered by the court in full, which will happen as soon as possible.

Beyond the legal debate, there is a parallel political articulation. National Football Secretary Ronaldo Lima dos Santos was in the America’s Cup final and was heard speaking out in favor of Caboclo’s return. The ousted CBF president spoke directly with Republican President Jair Bolsonaro about hosting the America’s Cup.

In this scenario, the CBF directors had information that Noronha might rule in Caboclo’s favor. Because of this, they are organizing a meeting of the state federations to vote on the removal of Caboclo. But it took five days to call the meeting. Caboclo also reacts and tries to support between the federations, although he is weakened.

There is widespread concern among the current directors of the confederation that if Caboklo returns to the presidency, sponsors will face pressure to cancel contracts and instability in the organization’s governance.

After the decision of the president of STJD, the court will have two days for the conclusion of a lawyer, but the process will already begin with the appointment of a full rapporteur for the case. The trend is for sentencing at an extraordinary hearing or at the hearing itself, which means it will be quick.

At least 21 politicians who were already on the radar of Operation Lava Jato should remain in the political arena in 2023. Twelve of them were elected last Sunday to legislative and executive positions – 11 won seats in the Chamber of Deputies, while Gladson Kameli (PP) won the race for Acre’s government. Another seven remained as deputies, while six were not elected.

Esio Neves (PSDB-MG), Afonso Hamm (PP-RS), Aguinaldo Ribeiro (PP-PB), Artur Lira (PP-AL) – Acting President of the Chamber, Beto Richa (PSDB-PR) will be in the Chamber in 2023. , Joao Leao (PP-BA), Lindbergh Farias (PT-RJ), Luis Fernando Faria (PSD-MG), Mario Negromonte Jr. (PP-BA), Rosana Sarny (MDB-MA) and Vander Lube (PT-MS) .

Kaka Leao (PP-BA) and Romero Huca (MDB-RR), who were running for Senate seats, were not counted; Eduardo Cunha (PTB-SP) and Delcidio Amaral (PTB-MS), federal candidates; and Fernando Collor (PTB-AL) and Luis Carlos Heinze (PP-RS), who sued state governments. Former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) runs in the second round of elections in Planalto.

On the other front, the executioners of these politicians had significant voices. Associated with União Brasil, former judge Sergio Moro, who led Lava Hato at first instance, was elected senator for Paraná with 1,953,188 votes, deposing Álvaro Díaz (Podemos).


Former federal prosecutor Deltan Dallagnol (Podemos) received 344,917 votes for a seat in the Chamber of Deputies. Former task force coordinator for Lava Jato in Curitiba, he has spoken to prominent political figures such as Glazi Hoffmann of the PT (elected with 261,247 votes), Ricardo Barros of the PP (107,022 votes) and Luisa Canziani of the PSD (74,643 votes). In an interview with Estadão on Monday, Dallagnol spoke of Lava Jato’s “rebirth” like a Phoenix.

“The operation changed the course of the global political system and the system of competition in political disputes in Brazil,” says FGV professor Marco Antonio Carvalho Teixeira. However, for him, the election of so many candidates who passed investigations indicates that the political consequences of this “were left behind.”


According to Professor UniRio and Doctor of Political Science Fabio Kerche, “There are sections of society that regard Moro and Dallagnol as heroes.” He links the election of the two to the “withdrawal” of the operation, which began in 2014.

Kerche sees similarities between the developments of Lava Jato and Mãos Limpas that took place in Italy. “It was also possible to elect the prosecutors and justices of the peace who took part. They left “judicial politics” and moved on to “party politics”.
