Yes, dear and dear, I know that Jair Bolsonaro getting involved in an issue related to vaccines seems, in principle, humorous. Or else it resembles an oblique operation, like the one that arrested Al Capone for tax evasion, even though he had committed appalling crimes — the former president was not arrested. Still… Let’s see. We feel like humming “O Pato”, the song by Vinícius de Moraes, about the “goof”, who “Jumped from the perch/ At the foot of the horse/ He was kicked/ Raised a rooster (…)/ He fell in the well/ The bowl broke/ The young man made so many/ That went into the pot”… Ah, yes: Minister Alexandre de Moraes suspended the secrecy of the information. He did well. It helps to reduce the stock of nonsense out there. Let’s go.
Firstly, the crimes being investigated are serious — infraction of a preventive health measure; criminal association; insertion of false data in information systems and even corruption of minors —, and it doesn’t hurt to remember what Covid represented and still represents in Brazil and in the world. More than 700,000 Brazilians have already died. There is, therefore, nothing jocular. We are talking about the greatest tragedy that has ever hit our country in terms of fatalities.
Second, but no less important, we are talking about a politician who, as head of state, allowed serious fraud to be committed, according to an investigation by the Federal Police.
DID ALEXANDRE DE MORAES ACT OFFICIALLY?
Bolsonaristas and some misfits are out there saying that Moraes decided to cross the street, on his own, to determine the steps of Operation Venire, within the scope of inquiries under his rapporteurship. Well, that didn’t happen, as evidenced by the suspension of secrecy.
The Minister received a representation from the Federal Police requesting permission to take steps to investigate evidence of the following crimes:
– Falsification of the Vaccination Card issued by the Department of Health of the State of Goiás/GO and attempt to insert false data in the Ministry of Health systems;
– Falsification of the Vaccination Card issued by the Department of Health of the Municipality of Duque de Caxias/RJ and insertion of false data in Ministry of Health systems for the benefit of GABRIELA SANTIAGO RIBEIRO CID;
– Use of False Document by GABRIELA SANTIAGO RIBEIRO CID;
– Insertion of False data in the Systems of the Ministry of Health in the name of MAURO CESAR CID, BEATRIZ RIBEIRO CID, GIOVANA RIBEIRO CID and ISABELA RIBEIRO CID and possible crimes of Use of False Document and Corruption of Minors;
– Insertion of false data in the Systems of the Ministry of Health in the name of JAIR MESSIAS BOLSONARO, LAURA FIRMO BOLSONARO, MAX GUILHERME MACHADO and SERGIO ROCHA CORDEIRO and possible crimes of Use of False Document;
– Issuance of ideologically false certificates in the name of former President of the Republic JAIR BOLSONARO;
– Issuance of an ideologically false certificate in the name of LAURA FIRMO BOLSONARO;
– Issuance of ideologically false certificates in the name of MAX GUILHERME MACHADO DE MOURA;
– Issuance of ideologically false Certificates in the name of SERGIO ROCHA CORDEIRO.
All of this is explained in the Federal Police’s petition, accompanied by the due indications and evidence.
How would the one ask, “what to do”?
Moraes sent the representation of the Federal Police, with the set of evidence and the request for diligence, to the Attorney General’s Office. And who showed up? Deputy Attorney General Lindôra Araújo. And, well…, she behaved like Lindôra Araújo.
The evidence against those involved in the vaccine scam is, shall we say, overwhelming. But the doctor, who knows why, saw no reason for a search and seizure warrant against Jair Bolsonaro, although the factual set indicates that he was the main beneficiary of the fraud, in fact it existed. She wrote:
“In this case, there is no element of conviction that justifies, with certainty, the postulation of the precautionary measure of search and seizure of a home and/or personal nature by the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office, the presumptions raised by the Federal Police not being sufficient for that purpose. in relation to the former President of the Republic JAIR MESSIAS BOLSONARO and his wife, MICHELLE DE PAULA FIRMO REINALDO BOLSONARO.”
For the Deputy Attorney General, it is about “mere conjectures presented by the Federal Police, without a minimum evidentiary basis” is that “do not serve to substantiate the need, adequacy and proportionality of enacting this more drastic criminal precautionary measure, as a means of obtaining material sources of proof.”
Moraes did not agree with the PGR regarding Bolsonaro and, it should be said, at this stage, to any degree, the judge is not obliged to accept what the Public Ministry thinks. In his decision, the Minister wrote:
“In view of the above and the notorious public position of JAIR MESSIAS BOLSONARO against vaccination, the object of the CPI of the Pandemic and of investigations in this SUPREME COURT, the investigative line on the possibility of the former President of the Republic, of covertly and through the insertion of false data in the SUS systems, seek for themselves and third parties any advantages arising from effective immunization, especially considering the fact of not having been re-elected in the 2022 General Elections. , including the eventual exceptional removal of individual guarantees that cannot be used as a true protective shield for the practice of illicit activities, nor as an argument for removal or reduction of civil or criminal responsibility for criminal acts, under penalty of disrespect to a true Rule of Law (HC No. 70.814-5/SP, Reporting Judge CELSO DE MELLO, First Panel, DJ of 6/24/1994”
Moraes accepted Lindôra’s position regarding Michelle Bolsonaro. The deputy attorney general also ruled out the need for preventive detention of some of those involved, stating that provisional arrest would suffice:
“in the context examined, temporary detention, a criminal precautionary measure of a personal and instructive nature, is necessary only in relation to MAURO CESAR BARBOSA CID, LUIS MARCOS DOS REIS, AILTON GONÇALVES MORAES BARROS and JOÃO CARLOS DE SOUSA BRECHA, with a view to ensuring the useful result of the criminal investigation and, ultimately, of the criminal prosecution itself in its procedural phase.”
Moraes disagreed with the deputy prosecutor:
“In view of all the above, based on article 312 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, I DECREE THE PREVENTIVE DEtention of AILTON GONÇALVES MORAES BARROS, JOÃO CARLOS DE SOUSA BRECHA, LUIS MARCOS DOS REIS, MAURO CESAR BARBOSA CID, MAX GUILHERME MACHADO DE MOURA and SERGIO ROCHA CORDEIRO.”
Moraes, obviously, did not act ex officio, he decided based on an impressive set of facts presented by the Federal Police and listened to the MPF, as it should be done. You may or may not follow his opinion. When the time for the denouncement arrives, but it is still a long way off, then, yes, the rapporteur can only accept what the Public Prosecutor’s Office, responsible for the criminal action, thinks.
