Senator Alessandro Vieira says Aras is "a politician dressed as PGR"

Senator Alessandro Vieira (Cidadania-SE) accused Augusto Aras of being “a politician dressed like the Attorney General of the Republic” during his Roda Viva program on TV Cultura tonight. The statement was made by the congressman when he was asked if Aras could bring the Covid CPI to “pizza”.

No, I think you have mechanisms to resist the possible inaction of the prosecutor Augusto Aras, who is a private criminal case subordinate to the state one. I believe it has never been used at this level except for PGR. But when you have a figure like Augusto Aras, a politician dressed as the attorney general of the republic, a politician in the worst sense … you have to think about the worst alternatives you have. Senator Alessandro Vieira during Roda Viva

Appointed by President Jair Bolsonaro (no party), Augusto Aras took office in September for his second two-year term as head of the PGR (Office of the Attorney General) following a Senate hearing. For the re-appointment of Aras to the post of PGR, 55 votes were cast and only 10 against.

In his speech of about 20 minutes, he advocated the unity of the judiciary and respect for the Constitution, stressing that the PGR would not be used for political disputes or persecution. The PGR also reaffirmed its “loyalty” to the Constitution and democracy and defined its first two years in office as “impartial”.

Vieira participated in the program along with another colleague, Senator Fabiano Contarato (Rede-ES). Both have become active figures at meetings of the CPI (Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry), which is investigating the possible actions and inactions of the Bolsonaro government during the covid-19 pandemic.

1st STF Commission Voted to Keep Ze Trovao in Pretrial Detention



1st STF Commission Voted to Keep Ze Trovao in Pretrial Detention

The first panel of the STF (Supreme Federal Court) formed a majority, so the preventive detention of truck driver and YouTuber Marcos Antonio Pereira Gomes, known as Zé Trovão, remains. His defense demanded a habeas corpus.

A supporter of President Jair Bolsonaru (Poland), Ze Trovao gained notoriety this year for trying to organize strikes by truck drivers. He is under investigation on charges of instituting criminal and violent actions on the 7 September holiday.

STF Minister and Case Rapporteur Luis Roberto Barroso voted against habeas corpus. According to him, Ze Trovao’s defense “did not bring enough new arguments to change the decision” previously made by Barroso.

The pre-trial detention order was passed by Minister Alexander de Moraes, also from the STF, and who has now said that he was not allowed to vote.

Rosa Weber and Carmen Lucia, who were the last to vote, followed the voice of Rapporteur Barroso. Now only the manifestation of Minister Diaz Toffoli remains.

The virtual trial period began on December 3 and should end before this Friday (10).


Following his preventive detention order, Ze Trovao spent two months on the run in Mexico, stating that he would not return to Brazil for fear of being arrested. However, on October 26, he spontaneously reported to the Federal Police (PF) in Joinville, the city where he lives.

A Bolsonaro supporter is one of those investigating an investigation launched in April 2020 to investigate the organization of undemocratic actions amid demonstrations calling for military intervention, the closure of STF and Congress.

According to Moraes, the investigations carried out by PF show “there is strong indications and significant evidence pointing to the existence of a real criminal organization, with a strong digital presence and with production, publishing, financial and political centers, absolutely similar to those identified with the clear goal of undermining democracy and rule of law “.

Nudging Lulu and Bolsonara, Moreau trains in a political tone at the SP.



Nudging Lulu and Bolsonara, Moreau trains in a political tone at the SP.

The microphone is raised, ex-minister Sergio Moro (Podemos) walks around the stage without much confidence. A crowded audience listens to their jokes and political commentary. He presents his view of the country’s history in recent years in a tone that increasingly resembles that of a professional politician.

During a two-hour presentation of the book Against the Corruption System at the Renaissance Hotel in São Paulo, the former judge and current president, who had already denied his involvement in politics, focused his speech on defending his coming period. Lava Yato, with indirect suggestions to former President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) and the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, with direct quotes from President Jair Bolsonaro (PL), his former boss and current enemy.

Moreau joined Podemos last month and, as a prospective runner-up, his main flag is the fight against corruption.

Presentation of a book with a pre-election plan

“When he comes in, let’s shout“ President! “”, – said several people when the chairs were full. Some called themselves “Moro activists.”

The author’s recording at about 7:10 pm was lively. According to the press service, 400 tickets have been sold, with few vacancies. There are two packages available. One guaranteed entry, autographed book and R $ 95 notebook. Another, regular entrance, for 80 reais. The recommended price for one book in bookstores is R $ 49.90.

This is the third event of the so-called “launch tour” of the book after Curitiba and Recife. The latter will be in Rio de Janeiro next Thursday (9).

Moreau denied it was a campaign event. “This is not another project in which I took part,” he said at the opening. But his position was that of a candidate.

Until the middle of this year, the former judge refused to participate in politics several times. As he solidifies as a preliminary candidate, his faltering demeanor gradually solidifies and he feels at ease with a receptive audience.

As in other exhibitions, Moreau did not answer questions from the press and the public.

Anti-corruption motto. as usual, he dominated the lines. This is the central theme of the former magistrate, who even proposed the creation of a national anti-corruption court if elected, which the lawyers UOL listens to consider illegal.

When the topic changed, he said that he had returned from the United States, where he worked in the private sector, because he had been drafted. “It looks like the Brazilians are going to a funeral in 2022, all that remains is to choose the color of the coffin. And people said: come back, come back, ”he said.

“As a minister, I have never considered myself a politician, because this is a technical position. There is a political game, but it is not an addiction. I am not going to repeat that I am not a politician. I came back mostly for you. “

Against Lula and Bolsonaro

Moreau has always defended his anti-corruption legacy and, when he could, nudged Lula and Bolsonara, the top two candidates in the 2022 Planalto competition.

“People keep complaining about the president’s attacks on the judiciary – with reason – and the president’s attacks on the press – with good reason – but they don’t remember that it was the same during PT, but the goals were different,” he said, mocking coercive behavior towards Lula, claiming a risk to the police.

“In fact, both [Lula e Bolsonaro] bad, both wrong, ”he said.

Moreau was minister from January 2019 to April 2020 when he stepped down, accusing Bolsonaro of interfering with the PF (Federal Police) while investigating burglary schemes involving Senator Flavio Bolsonaro (PL-RJ), his eldest son.

“If my son does something wrong, I will scold him,” he said. “If you are against the government, you are out of the game or you are a communist agent.”

Moreau was also critical of other areas of the current government. “I looked at Brazil with great concern. In this pandemic, everyone has lost someone they loved and we also saw a crisis in the economic situation. High prices, low wages and rising interest rates, ”he said.

Same day as the triplex prescription

In the book, Moreau also tells the behind-the-scenes stories and stories of Lava Yato and ministries, which he called not “versions” but “facts.”
“Is this your version of the facts? No, these are facts. There is a story that happened. These are facts, ”the former minister said.

The event takes place on the same day that the FPM (Federal Ministry of State) acknowledged the statute of limitations in the case against Lula in the Guaruja Triplex (JV) case, in which the former president was convicted by Moro.

The statute of limitations was granted by the MPF on the grounds that the STF (Federal Supreme Court) had already overturned Lula’s conviction in April this year, declaring Moreau a suspect.

When asked, he regretted the decision. “When you see the courts overturning convictions for corruption … Something is wrong with the system that allows it. And Lava Jato remains proof that the system can work, ”he defended.

The event ended at 21.20. With a duration of just over two hours, several people had already left the hall during the last replies of the former minister.

This Tuesday (12.07), the anti-Semitist organization said it had filed a civil lawsuit against Thierry Bodet, leader of the Dutch populist party Frum for Democracy (FvD), for comparing health restrictions in relation to COVID-19 and the Holocaust. … The action was presented by four Jewish survivors of World War II, CJO, which brings together Jewish organizations in the Netherlands, and the Israel Documentation and Information Center (CIDI), which monitors anti-Semitism in the country.

Survivors found several tweets from populist leader Thierry Bodet, in which he stated that “the unvaccinated are the new Jews, and those who will not face exceptions are the new Nazis.”

Bode also posted a picture of a boy who was not allowed to participate in the St. Nicholas Day celebrations by uploading a photo of a boy from the Lodz ghetto (Poland) with a Star of David.

The authors of the action also criticized the populist for sharing a photo of the Buchenwald concentration camp with the following comment: “How CAN you not see how history is still repeating itself?”

“With these statements, Bode puts Sho’s horror (five to six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis in World War II) on a par with measures against the coronavirus. In doing so, he minimizes the importance of the Holocaust, ”he said. stated CIDI in a note.

“Making such comparisons is“ historically and fundamentally wrong, and especially detrimental to Holocaust survivors and their families, ”the center added.

Informants are calling for messages to be deleted and Bode not to use images of the Holocaust to talk about measures against the coronavirus.
