Brazilian Police assure there are no roadblocks

Brasilia, Nov 4 (Prensa Latina) The Federal Highway Police (PRF) reported that all highways in Brazil are completely free of roadblocks on Friday, after protests by supporters of the defeated president Jair Bolsonaro.

Roadblocks still occur in 24 arteries, which is when the flow of vehicles is partially prevented by some lane.

Such anomalies are registered in the states of Amazonas (two), Mato Grosso (seven), Mato Grosso do Sul (one), Pará (six) and Rondônia (eight).

According to the PRF, it has so far broken up 936 demonstrations on federal roads, which began last Sunday, in rejection of the victory of president-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva at the polls.

In view of the events, which he described as anti-democratic, Minister Alexandre de Moraes, of the Federal Supreme Court, ordered the Federal Police to identify the leaders of the movements that blocked the entrances.

The decision followed a request from the National Transportation Confederation, which also demanded the seizure of the trucks and, ‘in the hypothesis of identification of legal entities in the execution of these acts, that the interdiction and closing of their garages be determined’.

The judge also demanded the identification of the owners of the vehicles used in the fences and that the data be sent to the Supreme Court.
