Marcelo Pires Vieira, the singer Belo, was arrested on Wednesday (17), in Angra dos Reis, for performing and causing crowding in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. The pagodeiro performed at Complexo da Maré, north of Rio de Janeiro, on the 13th, despite the prohibitions.
At the time of the operation organized by the Civil Police at the Drug Control Station (DCOD), equipment and vehicles were seized from the artist. As the event took place inside a Municipal School in Parque União, the police are also investigating an alleged invasion of the school, according to the G1 portal.
In addition to the singer, DCOD opened an investigation and served three more preventive arrest warrants. The names are: Célio Caetano and Henriques brands, partners of the producer; Jorge Luiz Moura Barbosa, Alvarenga, head of drug trafficking in Parque União.
At the time of the opening of the investigation, Belo told Globo: “We did the show following all the protocols. We have no control over the general. That neither the government officials have. The beaches are crowded, public transport, and only those who suffer the consequences are the artists. That was the first segment to stop, and so far we have no support from anyone about our resumption. We support more than 50 families “.
Also according to the publication, the singer will also be summoned to clarify who paid for the concert fee.
It is worth remembering that Belo has already been arrested on two other occasions. He was sentenced on December 30, 2002 to six years in prison, accused of a trafficking association. The musician was imprisoned for about a month and got the right to respond in freedom.
The Public Ministry appealed the decision, and the 8th Criminal Chamber of the Rio de Janeiro Court of Justice increased the singer’s sentence to eight years. In 2004, he was arrested again and spent three years and eight months in jail.
