Session is scheduled for 17h; earlier, judge of the custody hearing decided to maintain the prison of the bolsonarista parliamentarian, arrested after publishing a video with attacks on the STF
After Judge Airton Vieira, assistant to Minister Alexandre de Moraes, of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), decide to maintain the arrest of the deputy in flagrante delicto Daniel Silveira (PSL-RJ), party leaders postponed until Friday, 18, the analysis of the case involving the Bolsonarist parliamentarian, detained on Tuesday night, 16, at his home in Petrópolis (RJ), after the publication of a video that supported Institutional Act No. 5 (AI-5) and defended the impeachment of the eleven ministers of the Court. The deliberative session of the Chamber of Deputies will take place at 5 pm, he told Young pan a parliamentarian who attends the meeting at the official residence of the President of the House, Arthur Lira (PP-AL).
As Prime Time Zone showed, the tendency is for the House plenary to vote for the maintenance of Daniel Silveira’s prison. In the opinion of deputies, revoking a unanimous decision by the Supreme Court would cause an unnecessary crisis with the Judiciary. Another wing of Congress believes that by failing to exemplarily punish a congressman who made an apology for the military regime, Parliament could give ammunition to other attacks on institutions. This argument is defended by deputy Fausto Pinato (PP-SP), Lira’s ally in the Chamber. “I recognize that the measure taken by Minister Alexandre de Moraes was extreme, but it must be taken into account that Daniel Silveira and the Olavistas participated and encouraged the anti-democratic acts that called for the closure of the Supreme Court, of the Chamber, cursing bandits’ parliamentarians. This weighs on the deputies’ evaluation. Can’t releasing deputy Daniel Silveira be seen as an incentive to these radicals who instigate institutional rupture? The time has come to stop the extremists. Stop the joke. President Arthur Lira was elected preaching a speech of pacification, focusing on reforms, in fighting the coronavirus crisis. No more confusion, ”said Pinato in an interview with Young pan.
Daniel Silveira will be transferred to the Special Professional Battalion of the Military Police of the State of Rio de Janeiro. At the custody hearing, the deputy stated that, in his view, there was no flagrant situation. “In my understanding, with all due respect to the judiciary and the Minister’s decision, I believe that the situation was considered flagrant, so it could not have been, I understand, with all the repeated respect that we were not facing a situation of flagrant, whose drafting was then irregular ”, said, according to the minutes of the hearing, obtained by Prime Time Zone. The defense of the parliamentarian also requested the relaxation of his arrest, with the consequent issuance of a release permit, for considering it illegal.
