“You can only call for the extradition of someone who responds to a criminal process and Bolsonaro is not in that situation. We have no element right now to request Bolsonaro’s extradition”, Dino said in an in-depth press conference, while detailing there is a question of dynamics with the United States and “sovereignty is theirs. They can assess the convenience of someone´s stay in the territory”.
The Brazilian minister also made an analysis following Sunday’s insurrection and vandalisms in the Federal District (DF), where as many as 209 people were arrested on the spot.
“Such a figure is always updated. At this moment, 1,200 people are being heard, totaling 1,500 arrests”, Dino pointed out.
Among possible crimes are: coup d’état; attempt to abolish the rule of law; vandalism and criminal association.
Dino also informed the Federal Police opened three investigations to find out who are the financiers and ring leaders encouraging these terrorism actions. “Whoever the financier, he/she will be called to responsibility”, Dino remarked, while admitting there was a violation of agreement between DF security forces and the Federal Government.
The agreement for the President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva´s inauguration on January 1 with the Federal Government “was faithfully complied with. We believed the security planning made for yesterday would be fulfilled. Unfortunately, it was not,” Dino stated.
In his contact with the press, Dino thanked the 10 governors who collaborated with the federal actions and informed that another 500 individuals were assigned to protect the “providences throughout the week”.
Federal Highway Police, on the other hand, seized 40 buses transporting extremists out of Brasilia. Some of them were even on the move.
Democratic congressmen on Sunday called for the U.S. government and Florida authorities to extradite Jair Bolsonaro to Brazil.
