Minister overturned decision of former dean Marco Aurélio de Mello and postponed for 90 days the investigations around the president
By order, the minister of Supreme Federal Court (STF), Alexandre de Moraes, determined this Friday, 30, that the Court resume the inquiry that investigates alleged intrusions of the president Jair Bolsonaro on Federal police. The document issued by Moraes overturns the decision of former minister Marco Aurélio de Mello, who determined in September 2020 that the proceedings on the case be suspended until the Plenary decided how the president would be heard in the case. “I determine the immediate resumption of the regular processing of this inquiry, regardless of the judgment of the regulatory appeal filed by President Jair Bolsonaro, which is scheduled for a short date, 9/29/2021”, says an excerpt of the document signed by Moraes.
