Parliamentarians are still evaluating which strategy will be adopted in the case of the Bolsonarista deputy, arrested after publishing a video with attacks on the Supreme Court
A Chamber of Deputies will analyze this Thursday, 18, whether or not the arrest of the deputy remains Daniel Silveira (PSL-RJ). The session is scheduled for 10am, but there are other items on the agenda. The parliamentary custody hearing is also scheduled for this Thursday, at 2:30 pm. Fierce defender of the president Jair Bolsonaro, Silveira was arrested by the Federal Police (PF) on Tuesday night, 16, after the publication of a video with attacks and swearing at ministers of the Supreme Court (STF), in particular to the Minister Edson Fachin. “Over and over I have already imagined you taking a beating. How many times have I imagined you and all the members of this Court. How many times have I imagined you, on the street, getting beaten up. What are you going to talk about? That I am fomenting violence? No. I just imagined it. Even if I foresaw, it still wouldn’t be a crime. You know it wouldn’t be a crime. You are a poor lawyer. Go there and arrest Villas Bôas, quickly, just for us to see a little business, ”he said.
According to parliamentarians heard by Young pan, the dome of the Chamber still studies which strategy should be adopted in the case of Daniel Silveira. Party leaders agree that the Bolsonarista deputy committed crimes under the National Security Law, but they challenge Minister Alexandre de Moraes’ understanding of the act. There is yet another concern: how to find an alternative to the case without facing a unanimous decision by the Supreme Court and, consequently, opening up a crisis between the Powers. Nominal and open voting is another factor taken into account by deputies – for the prison to be revoked, 257 votes will be needed.
Daniel Silveira’s arrest was determined by Minister Alexandre de Moraes. The decision was unanimously endorsed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday afternoon, 17. In his vote, Moraes said that the parliamentarian’s manifestations aim to “destroy the democratic regime together with its republican institutions, preaching violence, arbitration and disrespect to the separation of powers ”. “Conduct and demonstrations that have the clear purpose of controlling and annihilating the force of critical thinking, including criticism of the Judiciary and STF, are unconstitutional, as well as those that intend to destroy the democratic regime together with their republican institutions, preaching violence agency, disrespect for the separation of powers. In short, statements pleading for tyranny, arbitrariness, violence, the breach of republican principles, as seen by Daniel Silveira’s criminal and inconsequential demonstrations ”, highlighted Moraes.
President of the STF, Minister Luiz Fux stated, at the opening of the session, that the STF “remains vigilant against any form of hostility to the institution. Offending authorities, beyond the limits allowed by freedom of expression, which we so consecrate in the Supreme Federal Court, necessarily requires prompt action by the Court ”. Dean of the Court, Minister Marco Aurélio Mello also gave a hard message to the deputy. “I am 74 years old, 42 in judiciary collegiate bodies, and I never imagined witnessing or experiencing what I experienced, I never imagined that a speech could be so acid, so aggressive, so foul, regarding institutions”, he said.
