Anvisa quotes threats and claims to be the target of "violent political activity" - News

After President Jair Bolsonaro announced during a weekly livestream that he wanted to release the names of Anvisa (National Health Surveillance Agency) technicians responsible for approving the use of Pfizer in children aged 5 to 11, the regulator issued a memo this Friday (17), which states that the team is “the focus and target of violent political activity.”

Anvisa cited death threats to directors since the end of October this year if they approved the use of the Covid-19 vaccine in children. In the manifestation, the agency emphasizes that “the working environment is free from internal pressure and is not subject to external pressure.”

On Thursday (16) live Bolsonaro criticized Anvisa’s decision and announced that he “unofficially requested the names of people who approved the vaccine for children 5 years and older.” “We want to publish the names of these people so that everyone knows who these people are and form their opinion.”

The message was deemed server intimidation precisely because there was already precedent for external threats received in corporate emails of the collegiate director.

In response to Bolsonaro’s speech, the agency emphasized that it is “a leader in the transparency of administrative acts” and confirmed that decisions are taken by all members. “All your decisions are directly or indirectly related to the names of all our servers, one way or another.”

The memo was signed by Anvisa CEO Antonio Barra Torres, as well as other directors Meyruz Sousa Freitas, Christian Rose Jourdan Gomez, Romison Rodriguez Mota and Alex Machado Campos.

Regarding the statements made by the President of the Republic during a live broadcast on social media on December 16, 2021, the National Health Oversight Agency reports:

Anvisa, a Brazilian state agency, publicly announces that its work environment is free from internal pressures and not subject to external pressures.

The government vaccine analysis services provided here are based on scientific evidence and offer safe, effective and quality options to the Ministry of Health, the National Plan for Immunization – PNI.

In October of this year, following death threats and all sorts of criminal actions by anti-vaccination agents, in the field of vaccination of children, this National Agency became the focus and target of violent political activity.

Anvisa is a leader in the transparency of administrative acts, and all of its decisions are directly or indirectly related to the names of all our servers, one way or another.

Anvisa is always ready to meet the need for information, but it rejects and categorically rejects any explicit or subtle threat that can embarrass, intimidate or threaten the free exercise of regulatory activities and support for our lives and families: our job is to to protect the health of the citizen.

Antonio Barra Torres, CEO

Meiruz Souza Freitas, Director

Christian Rose Jourdan Gomez, Director

Lula is preparing the announcement of the bloc of ministers on the 13th

President-elect team Louis Ignatius Lula da Silva (PT) is preparing the announcement of the block of ministers on December 13, next week – the day after the diplomat’s PT in the EEC (Higher Electoral Court). In addition to guaranteeing a few more days to resolve deadlocksthe party intends to use the symbols of the “lucky number” on the date when it will announce the new folders.

Lula himself has already admitted that most of the future ministry has already been chosen. in Brasilia, former Minister Fernando Haddad (PT), Senator Simone Tebet (MDB-MS) and former TCU (Tribunal de Contas da União) Minister José muzio they are already treated with the status of ministerial ministers – there is not enough officiality.

I will finish my studies on the 12th [de dezembro]🇧🇷 After graduation, after I am recognized as the President of the Republic, I will start choosing my ministry. No one needs to suffer, be nervous, create expectations, because deep down I already have 80% of the service in my head.”
Lula, at the press conference on Friday (2)

Lula was forced to announce the names of the new government. But it endured. He does not want to give the impression that he bows to any sector, be it political, economic or military.

In 2002, during his first term, he was under similar pressure and announced: December 10Antonio Paloccithen Transition Coordinator from the Ministry of Finance and Marina Silva from Environmental Protection.

Piece by piece. If he delivers on campaign promises at the start of a future government, the Esplanade should have ten more ministries early next year. The total number will increase from 23 to 33, three of which are new.

The first names given for the declaration are:

  • Haddad on the farmwith the dismemberment of the Ministry of Economy, and
  • Muzio on defense🇧🇷 The statement of the former PTS minister could be the first this year, already this week.

It is likely that these readings will be confirmed prior to release. AT dinner with the senators, last week Lula already confirmed the names Muzio and elected senator Flavio Dino (PSB-MA) in fairnessaccording to Estadão.

Cited. However, on the next 13th, a more reliable list should be announced:

  • Vamet in the new Ministry of Social Development,
  • dino in justice, dismembered from public safety,
  • O Governor of Bahia Rui Costa (PT) in the Civil House,
  • O ex-chancellor Mauro Vieira return to Itamaraty,
  • BUT elected MP Marina Silva (Rede-SP) back to the Ministry of the Environment, and
  • O Deputy Alexander Padilla (PT-SP) upon return of the Ministry of Institutional Relations.

Lula’s team is still negotiating

Without confirming any names yet, the future government still needs to sort out some dead ends – and according to close leaders, everything was ideally resolved before the first big announcement next week.

With the dismemberment of the Ministry of Economy, it would be ideal to announce the name of the Treasury along with the name of Planning. Persian Aridone of the founders of Plano Real, received a higher rating.

Arida went so far as to say she wasn’t going to take over Planning folder, but according to interlocutors of the transitional government, his name was proposed by vice-president-elect Geraldo Alkmin (PSB) and accepted by Lula. The plan was to have a technical profile and a political one, with clear and complementary economic views on finance and planning, but negotiations cooled off. Arida is not ruled out, but not confirmed either. The only thing PT supporters guarantee is that Alcmine will nominate this portfolio.

How wags make MDB. Vamet it also depends on your party. O MDB is bidding for at least three folders in the new government, but hopes it ends up in Lula’s private office given the senator’s importance in the second round of the campaign.

Emedebists are examining at least one leadership, senator and deputy for appointment to office:

  • Senator-elect Renan Filho (AL), former governor of Alagoas, will lead the Ministry of Mines and Energy.
  • Governor Helder Barballo (Pennsylvania), re-elected with the highest approval rating, will appoint the head of the Department of Regional Development.
  • There will still be room for an MP to be determined by the emedebista bench commanded by President Balea Rossi (MDB-SP).

Lula is in Brazil and his meetings with the transition team and political leaders are divided. Members of the Working Group on Planning, Budget and Management are scheduled to give interviews to the press today.
