In his explanation, Fachin argued that one would be facing a debate that does not concern a question between prosecution and defense, but between defense and defense. “Would there be illegality or abuse of power by failing to comply with an express legal rule that does not exist?”

Fábio Pannunzio: I supported impeachment and I regret it

Former supporter of the Lava Jato and the coup against former president Dilma Rousseff, the journalist said he was sorry for his positions and said the 2016 impeachment was a deliberate action against the left. “It was a classic blow by Temer with the assent and open participation of Eduardo Cunha and half of the Brazilian elite and the financial market,” he told TV 247. Watch

247 – Journalist Fabio Pannunzio spoke to TV 247 about his “naive” positions, he said, regarding the parliamentary coup against former President Dilma Rousseff in 2016 and support for Operation Lava Jato, now unmasked by the leaks of the The Intercept, known as ‘Vaza Jet’. Pannunzio stated that the impeachment action was a deliberate attack on the left and that the Lava Jato had a stated political bias.

In the opinion of the journalist, who has just left TV Band after 20 years, where he was anchor of Jornal da Noite, the lack of understanding about the political conjuncture led him to support the coup against Dilma and the Lava Jato. “I supported Lava Jato as much as I later supported Dilma’s deposition. I think I was naive, perhaps because of lack of experience, there was a lack of understanding of what would actually happen with the unfolding of these events. ”

Pannunzio called Dilma’s deposition a “classic blow.” “I supported impeachment, and I regret it because it was not a movement of ousting a president for inability to manage, although I have a lot of criticism of the Dilma government. It was a classic blow by Temer with the assent and open participation of Eduardo Cunha and half of the Brazilian elite and the financial market. ”

About Lava Jato, the journalist commented that the operation was orchestrated to attack the left. “Lava Jato seems to be the praetorian guard of the Brazilian right, I have no doubt today that this was a deliberate action to make the leftmost movements unfeasible. When we learned that Moro was a ‘prosecutor’ in charge of an operation that had a stated political bias later, when he became minister, it scared me a lot. The Brazilian judicial system is being used as a political platform for very spurious purposes. ”

He still characterized himself as “iconoclastic” and explained that during the PT governments he was on the right and now he is on the left. “The coherence that I can present is the coherence with this iconoclast,” he said.

Supreme prepares offensive against Moro and Lava Jet that could result in Lula’s release

October may be the time for a turning point in the clash that Brazil’s legalistic and democratic forces are waging against the discretion of Sergio Moro and Operation Lava Jato. The Supreme Court (STF) is preparing to give its harshest message to Operation Lava Jato and the former judge and current minister of justice, with his decisions rendered ineffective and Lula freed from the political prison imposed on him.

247 – The month of October may be the time of a turning point in the struggle the loyalists and democratic forces of Brazil waging against the will of Sergio Moro and Operation Lava jet. Report by journalist Thais Arbex, from Folha de S.Paulo, informs that the Supreme Court (STF) is preparing to give in October its toughest message to Operation Lava Jato and the former judge and current Minister of Justice, with their decisions rendered ineffective and Lula freed from the political prison imposed on him.  

It is possible that in October Minister Gilmar Mendes resumes the trial of Sergio Moro’s suspicion. It seems that by then there will be a defeat of Moro in the second class of the court.  

According to the report, the Supreme Court will again discuss a habeas corpus request made by the defense of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT), alleging Moro’s lack of impartiality in conducting the Guarujá triplex process ( SP). 

If the claim is accepted, the sentence may be overturned. the case would go back to the initial stages and Lula could get out of jail. The trial was set for July 25, but Gilmar asked him to leave the agenda. 

For the minister, the court should await the unfolding of the leaking talks attributed to Moro with the Lava Jato summit. At that moment, there was the prospect that new dialogues would emerge that could corroborate what Lula’s lawyers claim.  

There is a change of mood in the Supreme over this sensitive issue. The dean of the court, Celso de Mello, has shown signs of discomfort with the content of the messages revealed by Intercept. 

The minister is considered a fundamental piece for the suspicion of Moro to be debated again and be accepted by the board. Gilmar was just waiting for a signal from his colleague to release the process.  

The assessment of one wing of the Supreme is that most Ministers in the Second Class today have no doubt about Moro’s bias. The understanding has been reinforced by international repercussions. 

A magistrate told Folha, on condition of anonymity, that the Supreme Court needs to position itself because the scenario for the Brazilian Justice is bad.   

The report informs that can also go to the plenary of the Supreme Court next month the actions that question the constitutionality of prisons after conviction in the second instance and the discussion that overturned the sentence imposed by Moro Aldemir Bendine, former president of Petrobras and Banco do Brazil. This is what signaled the President of the Supreme Court, Dias Toffoli, to members of the court.   

An unfavorable scenario is drawn for Moro and Dallagnol. According to Ministers of the Supreme Court, the likely inclusion of these topics in the plenary agenda indicates that today, there would already be a majority in favor of theses contrary to Lava Jato.  

Toffoli also indicated that he could anticipate the debate on the use of detailed data from control agencies such as Coaf, IRS and Central Bank without judicial authorization.  

In July, Toffoli suspended criminal investigations that used detailed information from these agencies. Moro expressed his dissatisfaction with the decision to Toffoli, saying it could endanger the fight against money laundering.

Lava Jato repeats unreasonable accusations, says Lula’s defense about new complaint

Former president and his brother Frei Chico were denounced by the Lava Jato de Sao Paulo task force for continued passive corruption. According to MPF, Frei Chico received “allowance” from Odebrecht between 2003 and 2015 in exchange for benefits obtained by the company from the government. “Lula has never offered the Odebrech Group any ‘improper advantage package’, so much so that the complaint does not describe, much less prove any illegal act by the former president. their family members, “said his lawyer, Cristiano Zanin Martins

247 – Former President Lula’s defense called “new accusations” the new complaint made by the Lava Jato task force in Sao Paulo against the former president and his brother Frei Chico. Both were reported for the crime of continued passive corruption. 

According to the MPF, Frei Chico received “allowance” from Odebrecht from R $ 3 to R $ 5,000 between 2003 and 2015 as “part of a package of improper advantages offered to Lula, in exchange for the various benefits obtained by Odebrecht from the federal government”.

“Lula has never offered the Odebrech Group any ‘improper advantage package’, so much so that the complaint does not describe, much less prove any illegal act by the former president. [He] also never claimed any improper advantage for himself or any of relatives, “said Lula’s lawyer, Cristiano Zanin Martins.

Frei Chico’s defense, represented by attorney Antônio Funari, sees the complaint as “absurd” as it has been handed over to the MPF “abundant documentation” proving that Frei Chico worked for Odebrecht and that the case corresponds to a period even before Lula is president. In addition, he recalled that witnesses appointed by the defense were not heard in the process. “I am finding this complaint very strange. It makes no sense. We have delivered documents that clearly prove that Friar Chico was serving Odebrecht,” he told 247.

In a telephone conversation with 247, Friar Chico said that he never received an allowance, but rather worked as a consultant for Odebrecht. Lula’s brother also stressed that the defense witnesses appointed by him to speak in the process were never heard.

This weekend, new leaks from The Intercept website opened up the political plans of Operation Lava Jato, which in 2016 manipulated the episode version of Lula’s appointment as Minister of the House, preventing this from happening and strengthening the environment for the government. blow that took Dilma Rousseff out of power.

Read the full note issued by Lula’s defense:

The complaint filed today (09/09/2019) in São Paulo by prosecutors of the franchise “Lava Jato” against Lula repeats the same and unreasonable accusations already presented in other criminal proceedings against the former president, in particular, the criminal action No. 5063130 -17.2016.4.04.7000 (case of the property that was never intended for Instituto Lula), which is before the 13th. Federal Criminal Court of Curitiba and criminal action No. 1026137-89.2018.4.01.3400 / DF, which is pending before the 10th. Federal Criminal Court of Brasilia (Janus case).  

Lula has never offered the Odebrech Group any “package of improper advantages”, so much so that the complaint does not describe, much less proves any illegal act by the former president. Once again the prosecutor resorted to the subterfuge of the “undetermined act”, in a kind of wildcard used to multiply unreasonable accusations against Lula. 

The former president has also never claimed any improper advantage for himself or any of his family members. The complaint comes the next day of serious revelations by the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo of Lava Jato’s illegal action against Lula, showing the concealment of evidence of innocence and undue and illegal action aimed at breaking democracy in the country.   

The use of criminal proceedings and the repetition of the same and unreasonable accusations in different proceedings proves that Lula is a victim of “lawfare”, which consists in the abuse of laws and legal procedures to promote political persecution.

Lava Jato omitted Lula’s dialogues to prevent his inauguration in the Civil House and overthrow Dilma

The new chapter of Vaza Jato reveals that police and prosecutors have omitted dialogues from former President Lula that prove that they never intended to shield themselves from Lava Jato investigations. Lula intended only to guarantee the governability of former president Dilma Rousseff. With the manipulation of the dialogues, which were leaked by Sergio Moro to Globo, the Lava Jato changed the history of Brazil, preventing the possession of Lula, overthrowing Dilma and allowing the rise of fascism represented by Jair Bolsonaro.

“Conversations of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) recorded by the Federal Police in 2016 and kept confidential ever since weaken the thesis used by today’s minister Sergio Moro to justify the most controversial decision he made as judge over Lava Jato “, points out the new report by Folha in partnership with Intercept. “Other intercepted police calls that day, kept under wraps by investigators, questioned the hypothesis adopted at the time by Moro, who left the judiciary to take over the Ministry of Justice under the Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) government.”

“The dialogues, which include talks by Lula with politicians, trade unionists and then Vice President Michel Temer (MDB), reveal that the petista told different interlocutors that day that he was reluctant to accept Dilma’s invitation to be minister and only accepted him. after pressure from allies, the former president mentioned the ongoing investigations only once to direct one of his lawyers to tell journalists to seek him out that the sole effect of the appointment would be to change his jurisdiction case, thanks to the guarantee of forum for ministers in the Supreme, “the report also points out. 

Moro’s illegal staple was released by Globo on March 16, 2016. Based on conversations released by the former judge, STF Minister Gilmar Mendes annulled Lula’s inauguration two days later, on March 18. As the political crisis deepened, the House approved the opening of the impeachment process in April and removed Dilma from office, the report recalls.

Celso Amorim: “While Lula is in prison there is no democracy in Brazil”

“Sovereignty today is popular sovereignty, which implies democracy. Democracy today in Brazil has a main name: Lula. While Lula is in prison there is no democracy in Brazil. So that we can return to a rational discourse and debate in the country, Lula Livre! “emphasized former minister Celso Amorim

Regarding the international crisis generated by the burning of the Amazon, Celso Amorim pointed out that “Amazonia is a national responsibility for a global problem” and that Bolsonaro has a false view of sovereignty when dealing with the issue,

“There is a misappropriation of the term sovereignty in the case of the Amazon. We cannot fall into the trap of accepting that the concept of sovereignty is used to justify improper actions, contrary to our own laws, our constitution and also international commitments that the country has made. ”He said.

Amorin said he was not in favor of international status for the Amazon, as Macron suggested, “but it was Bolsonaro who caused it by making the Amazon issue a worldwide scandal.”

You don’t spend any bullets and even the uniforms of the Marines and dominate. Brazil has never had such an explicit subordination to the US.”

Arboreal vine: Merval, who questioned Lula’s lectures, today has to explain his $ 375,000

Journalist Merval Pereira, who campaigned for Lula’s political arrest, or for the electoral fraud that resulted in the election of Jair Bolsonaro, today was compelled to explain why he received $ 375,000 from Senac – following a complaint on social networks. by Bolsonaro himself. In his article, Merval said the value refers to 13 lectures – not just one

Merval announces Lula's arrest date: 26 or 27
Merval announces Lula’s arrest date: 26 or 27

247 – When former President Lula, the most popular politician in Brazilian history, who received invitations to lecture around the world, became the target of a judicial war process to be arrested and then excluded from the 2018 presidential dispute, Globo journalist Merval Pereira was one of the protagonists of the media campaign against Lula.

In July 2017, for example, he wrote that Lula would need to explain his lectures. “When they blocked R $ 600,000 from former President Lula’s checking account – it is amazing to have this amount in the current account – the PT issued a note saying that he was going to starve. A day later, R $ 9 million appear in plans to Lula had every condition of being a millionaire, given the price he charged for the lectures he says he had given since 2010. But he needs to prove that they existed and that they were not a counterpart to contractors. Odebrecht said he had prepared a scheme with the talks so that the former president would have a good retirement, “Merval posted in his column .

This Sunday, however, it is Merval who tries to explain himself after being accused by Jair Bolsonaro of receiving $ 375,000 for a lecture by Senac. “In fact, I did not receive this total, because the program was interrupted, and I ended up giving 13 lectures, which were reported in local newspapers, in Fecomércio do Rio publicity announcements, on websites, and filmed. The lectures were open to trade representatives. , industry, education, local politicians, students The following were the cities of the lectures: Angra dos Reis (3/30/2016), Miguel Pereira (14/4), Três Rios (28/4), Volta Redonda ( 5/5 /); Barra do Pirai (19/5); Teresópolis (16/6); Valença (9/6); Barra Mansa (14/7); Rio das Ostras (28/7) Petrópolis (11/8 ); Rio de Janeiro (7/12 /); Cabo Frio (3/16/2017); Niterói (25/5/2017) “, wrote Merval this Sunday .

In Merval’s case, a verse by Geraldo Vandré that refers to a “day that is coming, that this world will turn” goes well… It is in the song Aroeira, from the album Canto Geral, released in that year of contests. And it fits well with the results gathered by sectors of the commercial press in relation to the Lula administration: “It is the return of the aroeira vine in the loin of those who had it given”.

247 – The interview given by former President Lula to journalists Mauro Lopes, Paulo Moreira Leite and Pepe Escobar, from TV 247, was full of important messages about what is going on in Brazil and in the world. Lula expressed outrage at his political prisoner status for more than 500 days, but made it clear that he sleeps peacefully, unlike his tormentors. “Moro has insomnia because he knows he lied. And now he’s playing the clown,” he said, before he even knew that Deltan Dallgnol, demoralized by Vaza Jato, has only been able to sleep on drugs.

Lula sent a direct message to the Federal Supreme Court, which until now has remained cowering before the evident procedural fraud, already denounced by the greatest jurists and intellectuals of Brazil and the world. “I’m tired of calling Moro and Dallagnol liars. I’m hoping someone will have the dignity to read my case and judge on the record,” he said.  “I don’t want to leave here with half the blame. I want to leave with 100% of my innocence. I’m not a pigeon, put them on the anklet. My greatest pleasure would be to get out of here and Moro come in. He and Dallagnol.” full recognition of your innocence.

Regarding the Amazon, Lula made clear the responsibility of the voters of Jair Bolsonaro. “Bolsonaro says that those who are setting fire to the Amazon are the NGOs. Who is setting fire is his business owner,” he said. “Someone needed to take the Bolsonaro by the ear and say, ‘Listen here, kid, be polite.’ We need peace. A president doesn’t have to think about anything other than the welfare of his people,” Lula said. “These people have to understand that they were not elected to be owners of the country. They were elected to govern. Do not destroy the country. They cannot leave delivering Brazil.

The role of the United States

Lula also warned that his lawyers will seek access to documents demonstrating that he is the victim of a US-led international conspiracy that has arrested him and made room for the destruction of democracy in Brazil and the rise of neo-fascism. “We are filing requests from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requesting information from the US Department of Justice about US interference in my case,” he said.

Dilma: after 500 days of Lula’s illegal arrest, neo-fascism devastates Brazil

“Now the evil is done. Brazil is being devastated by a neo-fascist government in politics and neoliberal in the economy, headed by an eschatological and intolerant president. Having caught their biases, the judge and prosecutors who have colluded to convict Lula, destroying the economy and trampling justice deny the undeniable. They deny the undeniable, “says former president Dilma Rousseff, who was deposed by the 2016 coup, about Lula’s political arrest.

By Dilma Rousseff – A poem by Pastor Martin Niemöller, which inspired Bertold Brecht and Eduardo Alves da Costa, became a symbol of criticism of indifference to Nazism. In historical moments when values ​​are at stake, indifference becomes dramatic and leads to chaos. Thanks to Germany from the 1930s, worth today. 

“When the Nazis took the communists, I shut up 
because, after all, I was not a communist. 
When they arrested the Social Democrats, I shut up 
because, after all, I was not a Social Democrat. 
When they took the trade unionists, I didn’t protest, 
because, after all, I wasn’t a trade unionist. 
When they took the Jews, I did not protest, 
because, after all, I was not a Jew. 
When they took me, there was no one to protest. “

The arrest of Lula completes on Tuesday (20) 500 days of illegality and offense to the democratic rule of law. It represents disrespect for constitutional guarantees, due process of law, presumption of innocence and human rights. It is a threat. If Lula is arrested illegally, anyone can be. It all started when I was overthrown by the 2016 coup without committing a crime.

Here is the inaugural act of a process of destruction of democracy. And that was really it. 
Except for the progressives and Democrats, in the face of the coup and the arrest of Lula, when an injustice against an innocent was warned, many people stopped reacting. His only transgression is to be the greatest popular leader in the history of Brazil. Now, after the revelations of the website The Intercept, everyone knows that Lula was the victim of a plot to destroy his reputation and steal his freedom.

The judge who convicted him was the one who tapped a phone call between me and the former president and leaked the audio to TV Globo. Serious crime, target of only mild reprimand. And that was really it.

The same judge who convicted Lula validated a plea that was plucked under duress by a businessman who had previously said the former president was innocent. Plucked out of intimidation, such denunciation was the basis of the conviction. And the abuse prevailed.

To lend meaning to the sentence, the judge alleged that he condemned Lula for “undetermined acts”. Even the Lava Jet had confessed to having no evidence. But this judicial extravagance also prevailed. 
With Lula already imprisoned, this judge suspended his own vacation to coerce the Federal Police to violate the judge’s decision to release him. And, as in previous situations, the abuse has not been corrected.

In 2018, the week of the second round, the judge leaked an accusation rejected by the prosecutors, ensuring the victory of the far right. And the justice did not take any action.

After the election, the judge was asked to become president-elect’s minister thanks to his illegal interference. And that was really it. 

Now the evil is done. Brazil is being devastated by a neo-fascist government in politics and neoliberal in the economy, headed by an eschatological and intolerant president. Having caught their bias, the judge and the prosecutors who came together in collusion to convict Lula, destroy the economy and trample justice deny the undeniable. They belie the undeniable.

The result is shameful: an innocent is in prison and an unprepared neo-fascist is in power. 
There will only be justice with the annulment of the trial and the acquittal of Lula. 

#LulaLivre is a moral imperative, a civilizing requirement, an act of justice that the judiciary cannot deny to an innocent. Especially when the innocent is the only one who can pacify the country. Free to promote understanding, Lula will lead Brazil to unite social forces, without exclusion, on a front for democracy, sovereignty and the rights of the people. Such a front will seek the way out of the institutional, political and economic crisis in which Brazil was thrown by the 2016 coup, the arrest of Lula and the election of Bolsonaro.

#LulaLivre is a cry of hope for us to cease to be a war – torn country, contaminated by hatred and governed by insensitivity to again become a viable nation, socially just and generous with his people. #LulaLivre means peace and democracy for Brazil.

Vaza Jato reveals that Lava Jato was acting outside the law to obtain suspect tax data

A clandestine police state was set up to investigate suspects in the Lava Jato led by Sergio Moro and Deltan Dallagnol. With the collaboration of tax auditor Roberto Leonel, current president of Coaf, tax secrets were broken without judicial authorization – especially from people close to former president Lula. This is what the new chapter of Vaza Jato shows.

247 – The new chapter of Vaza Jato reveals that Lava Jato was acting outside the law to obtain tax data from suspects. This has happened several times and has targeted people linked to the processes involving former President Lula, who has been held as a political prisoner for almost 500 days. “Prosecutors of the Lava Jato operation also used Telegram to informally obtain sensitive data from the IRS – that is, without any judicial control.

Task Force coordinator Deltan Dallagnol and his colleagues in Curitiba have repeatedly resorted to a senior informant within the IRS to lift citizens’ fiscal secrecy without the court having authorized the breach, ” reporters Leandro Demori and Paula reveal. Bianchi, on Intercept .

“To obtain the confidential data, the prosecutors turned to the tax auditor Roberto Leonel, who headed the intelligence area of ​​the IRS in Curitiba, where he worked. Leonel is now president of Coaf,” said the reporters. That is: one of the main allies Minister Sergio Moro was responsible for smuggling tax data from suspects.

Focus on former president Lula

In August 2015, hearing of news that a nephew of Lula had done business in Angola with the help of politician and Odebrecht, the first thing that happened to attorney Roberson Pozzobon was to call Leonel, according to the Intercept report. “I want to ask via Leonel not to get too much in the face, like fishing fisherman and pay lol,” he said in a message to Dallagnol in the group Chat FT MPF Curitiba 2.

“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. “
