Another 54 Bolsonaro supporters denounced in Brazil for coup

Brasilia, Jan 23 (Prensa Latina) The Brazilian Prosecutor's Office today denounced another 54 supporters of the defeated president Jair Bolsonaro for the coup and vandalism acts perpetrated against the headquarters of the three powers in this capital on January 8.

The extremist demonstrators were detained in the camp in front of the Army General Headquarters, in Brasilia.

In total, 98 people were denounced to the Federal Supreme Court (STF) and this is the third accusation presented by the Attorney General’s Office.

The first one analyzed the 39 detainees in the Senate and, in the second, five were arrested for their participation in the attacks against the STF.

Those accused can answer for incitement to crime, matched by the animosity of the Armed Forces against the Constitutional Powers, as well as criminal association.

In the accusation, the coordinator of the Strategic Group to Combat Anti-Democratic Acts, Deputy Attorney General Carlos Frederico Santos, affirmed “there was an evident structure to guarantee stability and permanence” of the terrorists who defended the seizure of power.

Now, the STF plenary will decide whether to accept the complaint and make the accused prisoners. There is still no date set for the trial.

The PGR also requests that the preventive detention of the 54 denounced be replaced by precautionary measures.

According to the document, the sum of the sentences does not exceed four years, a condition established in the Criminal Procedure Code for the imposition of provisional prison.

Among the precautionary measures suggested by the Public Ministry are the prohibition of access to social networks, contact with the other investigated and any military establishment and its surroundings, with a minimum distance of 500 meters.

Santos also indicated that, when addressing the Army Headquarters, the defendants joined an association that, according to the characteristics, was already stable and perennial, and whose objective was the commission of crimes against the Democratic State of Law.

Judge Alexandre de Moraes, of the STF, determined on Monday the opening of six more investigations to analyze the conduct of the coup leaders involved in acts of terrorism.

With requests for military intervention and rejection of the assumption of power by President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, groups of radical supporters of Bolsonaro marked a black mark on January 8 in national history by invading and looting the capital’s headquarters of the National Congress, the STF and the Presidency.
