“The following year, between January and March, the task force asked Leonel to gather information about a daughter-in-law from Lula and the caretaker from the Atibaia site,” the report said. Surroundings also included the solicitation, made by the prosecutors, for information on the heritage of the former owners of the site. At the same time, prosecutors also asked the auditor for information about purchases that former first lady Marisa Letícia and the couple’s security guards would have made. “

Fenaj takes over Greenwald defense and sees threatened freedom of expression in Brazil

“It is important to point out that The Intercept Brazil website is doing journalism,” says Maria José Braga, president of the National Federation of Journalists. “In the specific case of Lava Jato and more specifically in relation to the conviction of President Lula, there has always been a doubt about the suspicion of Judge Sergio Moro,” he says.

Sputinik – The journalist team leader of The Intercept Brasil, the American journalist Glenn Greenwald has been threatened by the series of reports about the alleged messages exchanged in Operation Lava Jet, and this can be considered an attack on the freedom of the press in Brazil.

This is the opinion of the president of the National Federation of Journalists (FENAJ), Maria José Braga, who sees in the material of the site, which explained what would be the talks between then federal judge Sergio Moro and prosecutors of the Federal Public Ministry (MPF) , a clear journalism exercise in the country.

“It is important to point out that The Intercept Brazil is doing journalism, and what is journalism doing?” It is to seek information of public interest and to report this information of public interest to society […]. have knowledge of important information for the national life, for the public debate, its obligation to report this information to the whole society, “she told Sputnik Brazil.

In recent weeks, the series that became known as Vaza Jato brought to public notice a series of messages that, according to Greenwald’s website, would demonstrate what Maria José Braga called “a collusion” between Moro and the prosecutors of the operation to convict the ex – President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT).

“In the specific case of Lava Jato and more specifically in relation to the conviction of President Lula, there was always a doubt about the suspicion of Judge Sergio Moro and also of the prosecutors charged with denunciation of the Public Prosecutor’s Office because of the lack of concrete evidence, and even without concrete evidence there was condemnation, “commented the president of FENAJ, for whom the PT was wrongly convicted.

The reaction of Moro, the MPF and sectors of society favorable to Lava Jato and the government of President Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) was critical of Greenwald, accusing him of doing party politics with the series of reports. According to the journalist, he and his husband, Federal Deputy David Miranda (PSOL-RJ), were targets of threats.

“FENAJ, together with the Union of Journalists of the State of Rio de Janeiro, [state] where The Intercept Brasil website is based, has already issued a public notice regarding the threats against journalist Glenn Greenwald and his family, and these threats constitute an attack on the freedom of the press in Brazil.Any care of the authorities must be taken, they need to be vigilant to ensure the physical integrity of the journalist and his relatives, and that he can continue, along with his colleagues at the site, continuing with this work in favor of Brazilian society, “said Maria José Braga.

The president of FENAJ would participate in an audience with Greenwald this Monday at the National Council of Social Communication, organism maintained by the National Congress. However, the meeting was canceled due to the absence of several of the guests, among them the journalist from The Intercept Brasil and the journalist’s own representative.

Although the hearing was not held, Maria José Braga pointed out that it is up to the authorities not only to ensure the integrity of journalists from all over Brazil, but also to respect what the Constitution says – she recalled that the Federal Constitution guarantees the secrecy of the source, and it is not for the journalist to reveal the source of his information.

“The journalist, if he obtains relevant information and the source that passed the information does not want to be identified and asks not to be identified, the journalist has the constitutional prerogative to maintain the confidentiality of the source. the journalist has to analyze the relevance of the information, the reliability of this source, and he considering this reliable source, considering the material received of public interest, their obligation is to divulge, “he added.

For the president of FENAJ, it is “very difficult” that the Brazilian population is not interested in the content of the site’s reports on the messages exchanged by Lava Jato, which Greenwald himself said, are just beginning.

Brazil: Intercept’s new bomb proves that plot against Lula was forged by Lava Jato

Intercept’s new bomb proves that plot against Lula was forged by Lava Jato

The businessman Léo Pinheiro of OAS only became credible for Lava Jato’s task force after it changed its version and went on to accuse former President Lula and say that the reforms in the Guarujá triplex were counterpart to contracts at Petrobrás . In other words, he only became an informer after he said exactly what the Lava Jet required him to say

Léo Pinheiro asks for benefit 'to a maximum degree' after incriminating Lula

247 – Former President Lula has been held as a political prisoner for more than a year because of an award forged by the Attorney General’s Office. This is proof of the new batch of messages from Vaza Jato, released on Sunday by Folha de S. Paulo, in partnership with Intercept.

“The contractor who incriminated former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) in the case that took him to prison was treated with suspicion by Operation Lava Jato during almost the entire time he was willing to collaborate with the investigations, according to private messages exchanged between prosecutors involved in the negotiations, “the report said Sunday. “Léo Pinheiro, former president of the construction company OAS, only came to be considered creditworthy after changing several times his version on the triplex apartment of Guarujá (SP) that the company affirmed to have retired for the PT leader”.

The report recalls that Léo Pinheiro only presented the version used to convict Lula in April 2017, more than a year after the start of negotiations with Lava Jato. The dialogues examined by Folha and Intercept help to understand why the contractor’s negotiation negotiations, which have not yet been concluded, have been so haphazard – and suggest that the testimony about Lula and the triplet was decisive for the prosecutors to return to talk with Pinheiro , months after rejecting his first proposal of agreement. “That is: Léo Pinheiro was led to incriminate Lula to have his acceptance accepted.

The contractor was met with skepticism from the start. “The first news of LP version [Léo Pinheiro] on the site is already quite contrary to what we find here,” said one of the prosecutors, Paulo Roberto Galvão, in early March. “We are open to hearing about the company’s proposal but we are not committed to anything.”
