Ivanildo Gonçalves da Silva would be heard on Tuesday, 31, but Minister Nunes Marques, of the STF, allowed the witness not to appear in the Senate
the senator Renan Calheiros (MDB-AL), rapporteur yes CPI to Covid-19, said that the commission has images that show VTCLog’s motorcycle courier, Ivanildo Gonçalves da Silva, paying slips from the former Logistics director of the Ministry of Health Roberto Ferreira Dias, exonerated from office after being accused of asking for a bribe for the purchase of vaccines. When he testified to the CPI, Dias was arrested by decision of the senator Omar Aziz | (PSD-AM), president of the collegiate. VCTLog has a contract with the federal government and is responsible, among other things, for the logistics of vaccine distribution. Ivanildo would be heard on Tuesday, 31, but the hearing was canceled after Minister Nunes Marques, of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), granted an injunction freeing the witness to appear in the Senate. As Young Pan showed, the collegiate appealed and asked that the injunction “be immediately reconsidered”. In the regimental appeal filed by the Senate Advocacy, the senators claim that they received the decision with “perplexity”. Also according to the appeal, if the understanding is not revised with utmost urgency, the parliamentary commission will appeal to the Supreme Court.
“We have just received vehement indications that it was Ivanildo himself who paid the debt slips, together with Voetur [antigo nome da VTCLog], by Mr. Roberto Ferreira Dias”, said Renan Calheiros. “I don’t believe it,” Aziz reacted. According to data from the breach of telephone confidentiality of the former employee of the Ministry of Health, he and Andréia Lima, the company’s CEO, made 135 phone calls between April 2020 and 2021. “If this is not relevant [com os trabalhos da CPI], there will be nothing more”, joked the vice president of the commission, Randolfe Rodrigues (Rede-AP). The congressman of the Network referred to the decision of Nunes Marques, who, by releasing Ivanildo to testify to the senators, stated that there was no “congruence” between the determining facts for the opening of the Covid-19 CPI and those that served as the basis for the summoning the motoboy.
According to senator Randolfe Rodrigues, the images of the bank branch’s security system (see below) prove that the payments were made on the same date and at the same time as the bank slips in favor of Roberto Ferreira Dias were paid. “On June 22, the motorcycle courier enters the agency and makes a deposit in the amount of 6,000 reais. Before, on May 31st, we also have images, there is another deposit worth 6 thousand reais. On June 24th there is the largest deposit in favor of Roberto Ferreira Dias: 13,550 reais. This is a record of at least four transfers, but we have other information. [As imagens mostram] The motoboy entering, making the deposit and then on the bank statement, [consta] the transfer of amounts in favor of Mr. Roberto Dias”, said the vice president of the CPI. “If this is not enough proof for Minister Kassio to reconsider his decision, nothing else will. If this is not important for us to hear the motoboy in this CPI, nothing else will be.
