Quoted by the G1 news portal, the STF pointed out in a statement that the investigation, whose decisions were questioned by Bolsonaro, under investigation for the dissemination of false news and attacks on the authorities, has already been sanctioned by the plenary session of the superior court.
‘The democratic rule of law does not tolerate that a magistrate is accused for his decisions, since he must be questioned in the corresponding resources, obeying due legal process,’ according to the statement.
The Supreme Court emphasized that ‘while expressing its total confidence in the independence and impartiality of Minister Alexandre de Moraes, it will await the deliberation of the Federal Senate in a republican manner.’
In this regard, the former magistrate and former president of the STF Celso de Mello described Bolsonaro’s initiative as insult.
‘Bolsonaro’s gesture translates a manifest offense to the harmonious coexistence between the powers of the Republic, since the complaint against Minister Alexandre de Moraes, in addition to having no legitimate basis, reveals the subordinate intention of trying to intimidate a magistrate,’ he said From Mello.
He considered that, in addition to being independent, responsible and honest, De Moraes ‘fulfills his functional duty with exactitude and strict observance of the laws.’
