For the vice president of the Chamber, the Supreme Court took the necessary action to protect the Judiciary; deliberation of parliamentarians on the future of the deputy takes place this Thursday
The federal deputy and vice president of the Chamber, Marcelo ramos, considers that his colleague’s arrest Daniel Silveira (PSL-RJ) was a correct decision by the Federal Supreme Court (STF) for the protection of the Judiciary. The statement, made in an interview with Jornal da Manhã, Young pan, this Thursday, 18, precedes the decision of the Legislative on the future of the deputy, arrested in flagrante delicto for unreliable crime after determination of minister Alexandre de Moraes. Although he considers the determination correct in the face of the parliamentarian’s threats to democracy, Marcelo Ramos questions the arguments of the decision. “One thing is the crimes committed by deputy Daniel Silveira. I have no doubt that he committed a crime and should be punished. On the other hand, the arrest of a deputy is an extremely exceptional situation. According to article 53, paragraph 2, imprisonment can only happen in flagrante delicto for unspeakable crime and there are severe disagreements that there is characterization of flagrante delicto and that the crime is unspeakable.
According to the parliamentarian, the decision of the Chamber on the future of Daniel Silveira must happen only after the custody hearing, scheduled to take place at 2:30 pm this Thursday. According to him, the outcome of the hearing may determine the next steps. “If there are conditions for preventive detention, the Chamber will have to face the issue. But as proposed by the attorney general in his petition, it may result in an alternative measure, such as electronic anklet, limited access to networks and even suspension of the mandate, which would also be submitted to the Chamber. Our intention is not to transform an activity of the deputy into an institutional crisis between the Powers ”, said the deputy, who denies the possibility of an agreement between the Legislative and the Judiciary, a possibility criticized by Minister Marco Aurélio. “What the Chamber needs is to make it clear that it does not agree with Mr Daniel’s speech. So much so that the Board of Directors itself forwarded representation against him to the Ethics Council. We respect the Supreme Court’s decision, we do not try to build agreements, but we want to give signs that we do not agree with that speech. ”
The vice-president of the Chamber also reinforced that the position of the deputies is to discuss the characterization of the arrest in flagrante delicto for unspeakable crime, since the understanding can become an assumed danger. However, he reiterated that parliamentary immunity is “an instrument for the defense of democracy”, not a shield. “The Chamber will not tolerate this type of attitude that puts institutions in check. Immunity is an instrument for the defense of democracy and cannot be used as a shield for those who want to attack democracy. On the other hand, prerogatives need to be preserved, interpretation is not only a risk for a deputy, but for any citizen, ”he said, reinforcing support for the STF. “The Supreme Court has made the decision it should make for the protection of power.” The decision to be caught in the act for unreliable crime came after Daniel Silveira gave offenses and threats to the ministers. In a video published on social networks, Silveira even mentions the desire to see Minister Edson Fachin getting “a beating”. “Over and over again I have imagined you (Fachin) taking a beating. How many times have I imagined you and all the members of that court there. How many times have I imagined you, on the street, getting beaten up. What are you going to talk about? That I’m fomenting violence? No, I just imagined it, “he said in an excerpt from the recording. Now, it is up to the plenary of the Chamber to analyze whether or not the deputy’s arrest remains.
