247 – The defense of Fábio Luís Lula da Silva, son of former President Lula, asked this Friday (13) to the Federal Regional Court of the 4th Region to withdraw the investigation of the 69th phase of the Lava Jato of Curitiba’s federal court and annul the court decision that decreed it, informs Folha de S.Paulo .

In their request to Judge João Pedro Gebran Neto, the lawyers argue that “the case has already been subjected to criminal investigation in São Paulo by order of the Superior Court of Justice. The inquiry was then filed by the Federal Public Prosecution Service in the state for lack of evidence. They claim that any further investigation on the subject can only be done in the same place, “the report says.

They also state that “there is nothing in the 69th phase of Operation Lava Jato that points to any trace of fraud or embezzlement at Petrobras.”

“The jurisdiction of the 13th Federal Court of Curitiba is restricted to illicit cases involving Petrobras, while the 69th Lava Jato Phase clearly investigates alleged illicit acts involving the telecommunications sector, with no relation to oil and gas,” he says. the defense.

Lava Jato has no evidence of corruption against Lulinha, admits prosecutor

“We have to wait for the results of the search, this research can mature in this respect,” says Roberson Pozzobon to Globo, who published an analysis text about the operation against Lula’s son in which he says, “So far, there is no document that prove the thesis “

 

247 – As in the investigations and accusations made against former President Lula, the Lava Jato task force also has no evidence against the petista’s son, Fabio Luis Lula da Silva, known as Lulinha, who is the target of a phase of the operation. triggered this Tuesday 10.

“We have to wait for the results of the search, this investigation to mature in this respect,” said Prosecutor Roberson Pozzobon, who was known to say during the presentation of Deltan Dallagnol’s Power Point on the triplex charge that the task force he had no evidence yet, but convictions that Lula was running a major corruption scheme.

“The PF and MPF maintain that payments may be related to the executive action of President Lula that allowed the merger of Oi with Brasil Telecom. So far, there is no document to prove the thesis,” says Globo, in an analytical test. about Wednesday’s operation, signed by Thiago Herdy. “Obtaining this evidence is currently the biggest challenge of research,” he adds.

The highlight for the lack of evidence was noted by GGN newspaper, journalist Luis Nassif , who explains the case:

Since Monday (10), prosecutors in Curitiba have sold in the mainstream media – which even after the Intercept Brazil dossier, follows without any critical sense regarding the Lava Jato – the narrative that Oi’s business with Gamecorp group, from Squid and partners, need to be investigated.

The task force claims that it is possible that some money paid by Oi to the company linked to Lula, Suassuna and Bittar, was used to buy the Atibaia site.

The hypothesis is all that Lava Jato has at the moment. It was out of the realm of imagination that they launched a blatant police operation with more than 40 search and seizure warrants, hoping to find something to prove them right.

247 – Brazil ‘s Minister of Citizenship Osmar Terra was inaugurated by Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner on Tuesday (10) canceled by Jair Bolsonaro. Brazil should not have representatives at the ceremony. The information comes from the local Clarín newspaper.

Brazil: Lula is the most viable alternative against neo-fascism

Datafolha reveals that Bolsonaro melts in the presidency and that Lula is the most viable alternative against neo-fascism

“In normal times, Lula would be summoned by those who helped strike him to rescue Brazil from the abyss and rebuild the project of a Brazilian civilization. But will there be such greatness on the part of the scammers? And more than that, there will be ‘ permission “of imperialism for Brazil to liberate itself? Seeing in 2020, “says journalist Leonardo Attuch, commenting on the Datafolha survey

 

Bolsonaro reaches the end of the first year of his tenure with the worst rating of an elected president since the return to democracy, as someone who negatively affects the image of Brazil in the world as a character whose word can not be trusted and as someone who does not behaves as presidential decorum requires . That is: even if his fall was temporarily halted due to some economic relief, data revealed this Sunday by Datafolha indicate that he melts in the presidency of the Republic.

The data also indicate that the perception of anti-corruption has also declined – which is natural for a government involved in the electoral orange grove and Queiroz crack schemes – and that the size of the so-called “pockets of cattle” is 14% of the population. Brazilian . That is: this would be the size of the hard core of pockets, which today deceives a smaller number of Brazilians, who seem tired in the face of so many insults that come from Brasilia and such grotesque governance from the point of view of civilization.

What could save Bolsonaro would be an economic drag, but the signs in this field are still contradictory. Although unemployment has fallen relatively, gains in perceived welfare are limited due to the precariousness of new vacancies and lower incomes. Aside from this, the devalued real contributes to higher inflation, especially of food, which affects the poorer population, which today rejects and feels betrayed by pockets.

As Marcos Coimbra, director of Vox Populi says, at the end of the year, what sustains Bolsonaro is only time. “Most of the population, indifferent to politics and misinformed, think it is too early to decree that it is no good. If government time were not yet small, the demands would be higher and patience less. Incompetence would not be excused as a result. of inexperience or ‘novelty’, he says, in an article published here in 247.

The question that arises before Brazilians, especially those who imagine themselves to be “elite”, is that it is felt to maintain, in the name of a neoliberal policy that promises only a chicken flight, the support of an unreliable president. without decorum and that crumbles the image of Brazil in the world. More than that, someone who is perceived abroad as a threat to civilization.

And so we come to the trap in which Brazil has been placed in recent years. The one who raised Brazil’s image in the world and led the government best rated by most Brazilians, former President Lula, was the target of an intense campaign of hatred, driven by local prejudices and major international interests, but still remains the same. most viable name to defeat Brazilian neo-fascism. The game, as the columnist Merval Pereira of Globo says , is polarized between Lula and Bolsonaro and projects that call themselves “center” are unfeasible.

From Bolsonaro, nothing can be expected but civilization degradation. Lula, in turn, also defined his challenge. “There is only one sense to my freedom: it is to fight for the Brazilian people to have the right to smile again in that country. To fight for the people to have the right to eat three times a day, the right to study, to have access to have the right to eat meat, “he said.

In normal times, the choice between these two poles would be obvious. Lula would be summoned by those who helped strike him to rescue Brazil from the abyss and rebuild the project of a Brazilian civilization. But is there such greatness on the part of the scammers? And, more than that, will there be the “permission” of imperialism for Brazil to liberate itself or some more forceful action of the people of Bacurau? Seeing in 2020.

The reception to the call has been reticent but polite. sought, there is also no hurry to reactivate contact, “writes the journalist.

“Even strong acronyms in the Northeast, where the PT is influential, hesitate. In municipal elections, they say, national polarization tends to have little impact. Lula has returned to active activity with ease. Governors of Allied acronyms are taking advantage of trips to Sao Paulo to mark meetings with the petista in his old institute “, he points out.

247 Lula will maintain the combative level of his speech against the government of Jair Bolsonaro and has already sent signals to allies.  

According to the Folha de S.Paulo Panel column , this was not the expectation of members of other opposition parties and sectors of the PT itself.   

Lula told lawmakers that it is not possible to “indulge” the current occupiers of the Plateau.   

Combativity and polarization are in Lula’s political nature, in the PT’s DNA since its founding, says a friend of the former president.   

Even considering that there are sectors of the PT itself that call for more purposeful action, Lula’s speech at the 7th PT Congress last weekend is what will guide the acronym: polarization, opposition to Bolsonaro and struggle.
