Alessandro Vieira explained that, as there is no judicial removal or manifestation of the Ethics Council, the return of parliamentary activities is natural
This Thursday, the 18th, the term of removal of the senator ends Rodrigues boy (DEM-RR), who was caught with money in his underwear in 2020. The Minister of STF, Luis Roberto Barroso, did not extend the time of 90 days – since the parliamentarian himself left the post for 121 days. So far, the Attorney General’s Office has not yet filed a complaint against him. The leader of Citizenship in the Senate, Alessandro Vieira, believes that this is proof that PGR remains selective.
Vieira gave as an example the complaint presented by the institution to the deputy Daniel Silveirain less than 24 hours. “[Essa situação do senador] creates embarrassment. He is someone with a long relationship with a good part of the parliamentarians, several have known him for decades. I do not believe that he will be received hostile, but it will be necessary to explain the unexplainable for the rest of his life. The investigation needs to go. The absence of denunciation to date is noteworthy. ”
He points out that, unlike Rodrigues, Daniel Silveira is someone with a completely out of line demeanor and who has always been very aggressive and offensive – that’s why the reaction is not so strong. “You notice a lack of desire in the investigations. It is a matter of obligation to the country, whether or not you like your colleague ”, he said. In an interview with Morning newspaper, gives Young pan, Alessandro Vieira explained that, as there is no judicial removal or manifestation of the Ethics Council, the return of activities is natural.
“What is lacking is a proactive attitude in trying to identify the problem and punish deviations. His situation was very serious, needs clarification. This weakens democracy and we will demand action from the Council. ” For the Citizenship leader, the search and seizure involving Chico Rodrigues was already embarrassing. A lack of PGR positioning is “bad for the Senate, bad for the State and bad for Brazil”. Alessandro Vieira was also incisive in criticizing the Federal Supreme Court and stated that what happened is a consequence of concrete facts. “The powers lack a sense of self-restraint. The Minister Gilmar Mendes it offends someone 24 hours a day and nothing happens. This is very negative and we do not see a solution in the short term ”, he concluded.
