On Friday, the Brazilian Prosecutor’s Office appealed the ruling, which overturned the verdicts of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on Friday. Four days have passed since the Federal Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Labor leader.
Edson Fashin, judge of the court, complied with a habeas corpus filed by the former president’s defense regarding the impartiality of prosecutors and judges at Lava Gato. The decision caused political shock because it opened the way for the Labor leader to challenge the far-right Bolsonaro at the polls.
Now, the Deputy Attorney General rejected this ruling and also requested that all evidence accepted by the former judge in Curitiba, Parana state, Sergio Moro, be preserved.
“The Prosecutor understands that the jurisdiction of Court No. 13 in Curitiba must be preserved,” says the statement, warning of “legal certainty”.
The Public Prosecutor’s Office, headed by Augusto Aras, who was appointed to the post in 2019 by the current Brazilian president, wants to present a Fachin ruling for the consideration of 11 judges in court and in the event of a refusal, all the materials related to the case are sent to Saint Paul.
Last Tuesday, the second chamber of the Supreme Court dealt with Morrow’s bias and deferred a decision when the score was 2 to 2, because the fifth judge, Casio Nunes Marquez, who had been placed by President Jair Bolsonaro in the Supreme Court, requested more time to be issued.
In addition, this week the Bolsonarista and Moro henchmen hurried to Vachen in front of his home in Curitiba.
