Attack on Amon Mandel’s team could be a political crime, expert says



Attack on Amon Mandel's team could be a political crime, expert says

Manaus (AM) – Councilor Amom Mandel (citizenship) spoke this Thursday (4) about the attack his team suffered after checking public transport in the Cidade de Deus area, Manaus east zone. The case attracted attention as it could be a political offense against a highly popular candidate for federal deputy.

The attack took place on Tuesday evening (2), around 19:00. Ammon’s team investigated complaints of misuse of public transport by residents of the region.

As the group was moving along Nossa Senhora da Conceicao Avenue, a couple on a motorcycle drove up to the car and fired three shots in the direction of the car. The bullet hit the back of the car, which had a sticker with the name of a city council member on it.

According to the press service of the parliament, even during the attack, the criminals shouted “Amon, not here” and disappeared. The names of the perpetrators of the crime have not been established.

At a press conference held this Thursday (4), the adviser said that he had already received threats, but not on such a scale, with the presence of firearms. He also said that he was waiting for an investigation by law enforcement agencies to identify the perpetrators.

“I have even informed the Manaus City Council about the threats I am facing. However, this is the first time this has happened with firearms. Three shots were fired in the direction, one of them hit the red car,”


The bulletin about the incident was compiled on the same day as the attack, the adviser said, and he asked the authorities to keep it confidential so that information about the case would not be made public. However, there was a “leakage” of information about the crime. In this regard, he called for an investigation into the lack of protection of sensitive data.

The council member also said he received a call this morning from Gov. Wilson Lima. In the conversation, Wilson showed solidarity and said he would take the necessary action.

“I received a call from Gov. Wilson Lima in solidarity with the possible attack and he said he would take the necessary action. We want the safety of our team and our fans. This is a serious matter that worries me and which should not be on the agenda of the elections. Unfortunately, violence occurs and is likely to occur during the process, not only with me, but also with other candidates.”

When asked about possible motives for the crime, the adviser did not confirm whether the attack could be qualified as a political crime and that the police should confirm the results of the investigation.

“Although there is no what we call a political crime in the Criminal Code, it could have been committed for political reasons, but only the Secretariat of Public Security and the Civil Police can say this after an investigation. I also have another bulletin registered in the case of threats against me, which I already spoke about on the podium of the Municipality of Manaus”,

Amon said.

Similarly, political scientist Carlos Santiago also stated that it was too early to classify the attack as a political crime. Santiago emphasized that depending on the motivation of the crime, the electoral justice and other institutions must act and stop this type of violence.

“There are still no grounds for the police to say that this fact is a political crime. But whether they are political or not, it is essential that the Electoral Justice, the Electoral Public Ministry and the Amazonas State Public Security Service provide security, bring peace to the elections, and be able to provide answers to this case. Manaus can no longer live in an atmosphere of terror where even those who want to campaign politically are subjected to violence.”

Carlos Santiago said.

According to Deputy Organized Crime Department (DRCO) Delegate Rodrigo Azevedo, victims will be heard to provide clarification on the case. At the moment, investigative actions are being carried out to identify and arrest those responsible for the shooting.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
