Senate goes to STF against Lava Jato and can isolate Barroso in supreme court
Senate President David Alcolumbre (DEM-AP) complained that the Lava Jato operation, authorized by Supreme Minister Luis Roberto Barroso, did not have the consent of the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), recalls journalist Esmael Morais . Barroso is friends with prosecutor Deltan Dallagnol, who is “hurt” by Vaza Jato reports
By Esmael Morais, in his blog – In Brasilia, k-juice will boil even more. Senate President David Alcolumbre (DEM-AP) has announced that he will go to the Supreme Court (STF) against intimidation of the House.
Alcolumbre referred to the action of the Federal Police, this Thursday (19), in the office of Senator Fernando Bezerra Coelho (MDB-PE), leader of the government.
The Senate president complained that the Lava Jato operation, authorized by Supreme Minister Luis Roberto Barroso, did not have the consent of the Attorney General’s Office (PGR).
Barroso is friends with prosecutor Deltan Dallagnol, the task force’s coordinator in Curitiba, who is “hurt” by Vaza Jato reports.
Davi Alcolumbre sees the PF operation as ‘serious’ and ‘drastic interference’ because the reasons alleged in the court ruling would be between 2012 and 2014, so there is no justification for the search and seizure that took place today in the Senate. That is, by the time lapse, it would have given Bezerra Coelho time to conceal supposed evidence more than a million times.
“The determination of search and seizure also has the potential to reach the executive branch, as it was also held in the parliamentary cabinet for the Senate Federal Government Leader,” says a statement issued by the Senate president.
Senator Bezerra, in turn, said he was the victim of political persecution of Minister Sergio Moro. According to the government leader, his position in defense of fundamental guarantees bothers the former Lava Jato judge.
