The Attorney General’s Office (PGR) has referred PTB national president Roberto Jefferson to the Federal Supreme Court (STF).

The PGR claims that the former MP committed incitement to crime and crimes under the National Security Act and a law that is typical of racially motivated crimes (see below). The complaint was signed by Assistant Attorney General Lindora Araujo.

Jefferson was arrested on the 13th by order of STF Minister Alexandre de Moraes, a digital police investigation rapporteur.

Who is Roberto Jefferson?

In a 10-page complaint, the attorney’s assistant lists the actions of the PTB president between February and July of this year.

“On February 21, 2005, July 23, July 26, July 28 and other days in 2021, Roberto Jefferson, through social media posts and interviews, practiced actions that are criminalized under the Penal Code in the National Code.” security and in the Law defining crimes based on racial or color prejudice, “he said.

The STF must now set a deadline within which Jefferson’s defense must respond to the charges within 15 days. The court will then analyze whether it will receive a complaint that could turn Jefferson into a defendant.

I do not send PGR, the following crimes are listed:

  • In the National Security Law:

Instigate the practice of the offense of “attempting to prevent, by violence or grave threat, the free exercise of any of the powers of the Union or the States,” with from one to four years in prison… PGR claims that this happened three times.

slander or slander The President of the Republic, the Federal Senate, the Chamber of Deputies or the Federal Supreme Court, attributing to them a fact that is defined as a crime or an offensive fact, ” from one to four years in prison

  • In the law defining the crime of racism:

Practice, inducement or incitement to discrimination or prejudice based on race, color, ethnicity, religion or national origin through the media or publications of any kind, “c from two to five years in prison and a fine… PGR claims the crime was committed twice.

In a decision authorizing the arrest of a former deputy released on the day of the measure, Moraes wrote that the politician is part of a “possible criminal organization” that seeks to “destabilize republican institutions.”

“A possible criminal organization – theoretically represented as part of the political core – which has as one of its goals to destabilize republican institutions, especially those that can constitutionally oppose illegal or unconstitutional actions, as argued by the Federal Supreme Court (STF) and the National Congress itself.” , – wrote Moraes.

“A virtual network of supporters who act in a systematic manner to create or disseminate messages with the ultimate goal of overthrowing the democratic structure and the rule of law in Brazil,” Moraes said.

Jefferson is in preventive detention, which does not have a predetermined time limit in the criminal procedure law. In practice, he must remain in this state until a new assessment of the case.

The Criminal Procedure Code provides for a review of a preventive detention every 90 days. However, the Supreme Court has already established the understanding that the absence of such a revaluation does not mean that imprisonment is illegal.

talking and political animal

There is Ludwig Wittgenstein: language is not only used to describe reality, we also use it to ask for favors, to give thanks, to curse, to greet, to pray…

And it is necessary to take into account the context, the situation, the use. “It’s raining” can state the fact that it’s really raining. But suppose that the mother in the morning, when the son is getting ready for school, says to him: “It is raining”, he at the same time knows that he must take an umbrella. If in a peasant family, after a long drought, as now, the wife opens the window and says to her husband: “It is raining,” then this speaks of contentment. But if you were expecting a pleasant walk and you say, “It’s raining,” you’re in for a disappointment.
Language performs three main functions: expressive, appellative and representative. These functions are related to the relationship established between sender, receiver and objects: there is someone (the sender) who addresses someone (the receiver) to tell him something, making reality real.

Championship in Qatar and final in Moscow

To write without mentioning the World Cup, which started this week in Qatar, could be considered pedantic. I don’t want to fall into this trap. So, from what has happened so far, I highlight the courage of the Iranian team, which was silent, did not sing when their national anthem was played. This attitude was extraordinary. This emphatically marked the support of the players for the people of their country, who were on the streets for weeks to challenge the medieval rule of the Shia clerics and fight for freedom and equality in the treatment of all, men and people. women. This is not a mixture of football and politics. There are others, at the top of the state, who do this. Yes, this is a memory that human rights should be above all. Whenever politics is built on this basis at the domestic and international levels, the world will be completely different, more harmonious and benevolent. And less cynically, in the political sphere.

The show, set in Qatar, reminds us of three important facts. First, the diversity of the peoples of the globe. The culture of each of them must be respected and appreciated. We always have the opportunity to learn something from others. And racism has no place either in sports or in everyday life. Secondly, there are rivers of money flowing around football. I’m not talking about the billions spent by the host country. I will only mention that the great football teams are in the northern hemisphere: of the 32 participants in the tournament, about 22 come from the richest countries. This game is played in almost every corner of the world, big stars are known everywhere, but without resources there are no victories, without currency clubs and tackles nothing more than a fraudulent stock. Thirdly, football revives primal nationalisms, anything as long as you win, including the blessing of the hand of God, in the famous version of Maradona. Not the best will win, but my selection. This is not a sport, this is blinding anything, with a lit candle and faith in God.
