In the conversation, which took place in a Telegram group, on March 5, 2016, Carolina Rezende also talks about strategy to reach the Judiciary
Attorney Carolina Rezende said in a message leaked from Car wash, that it is “necessary to hit Lula in the head”, in a reference to the ex-president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. The PT defense presented to the Federal Supreme Court (STF), this Friday, the 11th, a new sequence of conversations from Operation Spoofing, from the Federal Police, who arrested hackers after the invasion of the accounts of authorities, such as ex-judge Sergio Moro, the coordinator of Lava Jato, Deltan Dallagnol, and other proxies. However, those involved deny the veracity of the conversations and condemn its use for the illicit way of obtaining it.
After access authorized by the STF, lawyers Lula submitted to the Court the analyzed reports of the intercepted messages. In the excerpt attributed to the attorney, Carolina Rezende, a member of the team of the then head of the Federal Public Ministry, Rodrigo Janot, says that it is necessary to “hit Lula in the head” to “win the battles already open”. “After yesterday, we need to hit Lula in the head (priority number 1), for us in the PGR, I think the second most relevant target would be Renan”, says the message, which refers to Renan Calheiros, former president of the Senate. “Let’s hope this week things will calm down and we can get more elements against Lula’s unfortunate”, he adds. The exchange of messages took place in a Telegram group on March 5, 2016, the day after Lula’s coercive conduct, in a decision by the then judge Sergio Moro. Also on that date, the task force combined the release of a note in favor of the former Minister of Justice, due to criticism of his action against the ex-president, for “not letting a friend be beaten alone,” says a prosecutor.
In another excerpt, Attorney Carolina Rezende highlights the stance in relation to the STF. “We cannot fight with everyone at the same time. If we try to reach ministers of the Supreme Court, for example, they will join against Lava Jato, I have no doubt. It is a good size, in my view, at that moment we reach the youngest minister of the STJ, Marcelo Navarro Ribeiro Dantas. I think that opening another front against the Judiciary may be over “, he concludes. In another sequence, in September 2016, Deltan Dallagnol tells colleagues that he met with Moro and that he was “adamant” about the deadline for the complaint against Lula, for corruption and money laundering, in the case of Sítio de Atibaia. “It has to be done,” he warns prosecutors. THE Federal Public Ministry sued the Supreme Federal Court after Minister Ricardo Lewandowski granted the access of the messages to the defense of PT. On trial in the second STF class this week, most ministers ratified the release of the material seized by the Federal Police.
