They took my number, threw me in groups and started telling me they were going to kill me, that they were going to kill my family,” he said. The truck driver also said that he did not have access to the process and does not know the reason for the arrest request. “Neither I nor my lawyer had access to the investigation, I don’t know what I’m being accused of, how can I defend myself? I don’t accept my arrest”, he added. Zé Trovão is monitored by the Federal Police, which requested the inclusion of his name in the so-called red broadcast list, of the Interpol.
