Brazil’s Supreme Court to conclude analysis of coup prisoners

Brasilia, Jan 20 (Prensa Latina) On Friday, Brazil's Supreme Federal Court (STF) expects to conclude the analysis of the detainees involved in the January 8 coup acts in the Three Powers' Square in this capital.

According to the court, STF’s Minister Alexandre do Moraes examined the detainees.

A total of 574 prisoners have been filed so far: 354 had flagrant prison converted into preventive detention, and 220 people were provisionally released through precautionary measures.

In the cases, De Moraes pointed out evidence of those crimes foreseen in the Brazilian legislation and the Criminal Code, such as terrorist acts (including preparatory ones), criminal association, violent abolition of the Democratic Rule of Law, coup d’Etat, threat, persecution, and incitement to crime.

Until the last update, 459 custody hearings were conducted, coordinated by the Magistrate of the National Council of Justice.

Judges of the Federal Regional Court of the First Region conducted 946 hearings; and those of the Court of Justice of the Federal District and Territories 513.

With calls for military intervention and rejection of the inauguration of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, on January 8, extreme right-wing groups supporting defeated President Jair Bolsonaro violently invaded and destroyed the headquarters of the National Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Planalto Palace, the seat of the Presidency.
