A Federal police reported on Wednesday, 4, that it opened an inquiry to investigate the leak of statements sent by the corporation to the CPI to Covid-19. The hearings are part of investigations into alleged irregularities in the purchase of the vaccine Covaxin and the president’s suspicion of malfeasance Jair Bolsonaro, both in progress. The PF claims that it sent the full record of the two inquiries to the CPI, after requesting the senators. “The videos containing the testimonies of eight people summoned were also sent, all without any editing. In compliance with the criminal procedural provisions and in order to safeguard the progress of investigations, the Federal Police asked the parliamentary committee for the necessary secrecy of the hearings”, says the statement. Some statements, however, were obtained by the press.
