The rapporteur did not rule out the possibility of expanding the list in the coming weeks, until the investigation of Bolsonaro.
The International Criminal Court also agreed on Friday that it would require social media companies to withdraw from “life-threatening” statements of their content made by ex-military Bolsonaro.
The deputy head of the commission, Randolph Rodriguez, confirmed that the lawsuit, filed when Brazil approaches 500,000 deaths due to Covid-19, is justified in a demonstration of the president on social networks.

For Rodriguez, these assertions “criminally threaten science and public health”, for which they will be removed from the content of companies such as Facebook and YouTube.
