Supreme Court judge receives report on attempted coup in Brazil

Brasilia, January 27. Ricardo Capelli, Federal Controller in Public Security of the Federal District (DF), will today submit a report on the activities of the January 8 coup to Supreme Court Judge Alexandre de Moraes.

On that date and under requests for military intervention, groups of extremist supporters of defeated President Jair Bolsonaro attacked and looted the headquarters of the National Congress, the Federal Supreme Court (STF) and the Presidency.

The initial forecast was that the document would be delivered a day earlier, but according to Capelli’s advisers, the data was revised.

According to the inspector, the aim is to find out more about the violent attacks on the STF headquarters. Photos published on Wednesday show in detail the looting carried out at the site.

The document to be given to Reporter de Moraes for the investigation of the coup actions in the Supreme Court must bring the report of the security forces on the matter as well as any findings that may help.

During Wednesday’s announcement of the name of Sandro Avelar as the new secretary of public security for the DF, Capelli commented on the content and pointed out that finalizing the text required caution.

“It is of great enthusiasm, because it is a report in which we are trying to answer some questions, based on the collection of a series of documents that the people owe to the society and the history of Brazil,” he said .

Therefore, he reiterated, “It is a passion to care with information, to be able to bring it to society more accurately. It is our responsibility to society and to history,” he reiterated.

Part of the document anticipated by Globonews television station is an increase in the number of people in the coup camp in front of the army headquarters in Brasilia in the days before the attacks.

According to the blog of journalist Andrea Saadi, on 6 January, around 300 people were in the shelter home. A day later the score rose to 3,800.

The G1 portal assures that the coup movement in Brasilia was fueled by dozens of buses that arrived in the capital the weekend before the attack.

The DF’s military police had some men who failed to stop the terrorists and were charged with lapses.

Works of art and furniture in the Planalto Palace, the seat of executive power, were smashed, and the STF plenary was destroyed.

Hours after the events, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva decided on a federal intervention to assume the security of the DF.

De Moraes ordered the removal of DF governor Ibanés Rocha for 90 days, a decision later ratified by the plenary session of the Superior Court.

To date, approximately 1,000 people remain in prison for their alleged involvement in the crimes.
