Attorney General of the Union defended the opening of churches on the grounds that public transport remains crowded; ‘He was Minister of Justice until recently, with responsibilities for proposing measures,’ said Mendes
First to vote in the session of this Wednesday, 7, of the Supreme Federal Court (STF), which analyzes whether mayors and governors have the autonomy to prohibit the presence of the public at services and masses, the minister Gilmar Mendes criticized the Union’s Advocate General, André Mendonça, who defended the reopening of religious temples on the grounds that public transport and air flights are still full. “I could have understood that His Excellency would have come from a trip to Mars and was detached from any institutional responsibility for any matter in Brazil,” said Mendes.
“When His Excellency talks about the problems of transportation in Brazil, especially public transport, and he talks about the problem of air transportation, with the accumulation of people, I could have understood that His Excellency would have now come to the Supreme Court of a trip to Mars, detached from any institutional responsibility, with any subject in Brazil. But Your Excellency, I went to check here, ‘googling’, as the younger ones say, and I noticed here that he was Minister of Justice until recently, with institutional responsibilities, including proposing measures. The Union is responsible for legislating on national transport policy guidelines. About traffic and transportation. It seems to me that there is a certain delusion in this general context. Each of us must take responsibility. This needs to be made very clear. Let us not try to deceive anyone. Especially because the fools stayed out of the Court, ”said the minister.
