In addition to the contempt, federal deputy committed sanitary infraction in IML in Rio de Janeiro
Alexandre de Moraes, Minister of the Supreme Federal Court (STF), authorized this Saturday, 20, to initiate an investigation to investigate whether the federal deputy Daniel Silveira (PSL-RJ) committed contempt and sanitary infraction by refusing to wear a mask, a necessary accessory in times of pandemic, and arguing with the police authority at the Instituto Médico Legal (IML) in Rio de Janeiro during the execution of his arrest, on the day 16. The information is contained in a decision published this Saturday by the STF minister. The parliamentarian argued with a civil police officer who asked him to put on the face protection mask when he entered the IML to undergo a body examination before the arrest.
The situation was filmed by a parliamentary advisor, and the images were shared on social networks. The request for the opening of an investigation was made by the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), due to the existence of evidence of alleged practice of the offenses provided for in articles 268 (“infraction of preventive sanitary measure”) and 331 (“contempt”) of Penal Code. “The ministerial organ postulates the fulfillment of due diligence in order to verify the criminal practices narrated, notably due to the video circulating on social networks, recording scenes of disrespect for legal obligations and verbal aggressions made by Daniel Silveira,” said the document. Moraes fixed a period of 60 days to hear the public agent who would have been offended and the other people who witnessed the facts. The deputy’s hearing was also determined to clarify the reasons for the refusal to comply with the obligation to wear a mask.
