Several Brazilian ministers denounce that the seized draft decree is “an attempted coup d’état”

MADRID, Jan. 13 (.) –

Several Brazilian ministers from the cabinet of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva have denounced this Thursday that the discovery of a draft decree seized from the home of former Justice Minister Jair Bolsonaro to change the result of the elections is part of the attempts to carry out a coup.

The Minister of Institutional Relations, Alexandre Padilha, has assured that it has been proven that the objective was to “manufacture chaos to bury democracy”, according to what the newspaper ‘Folha de Sao Paulo’ has learned.

“As the investigations progress, the criminal objective of those who financed, organized and carried out the acts of last Sunday becomes even clearer,” Padilha insisted.

“The coup attempt was premeditated and outlined in detail, but we are not going to let its perpetrators get away with it,” he said.

The head of Justice and National Security, Flávio Dino, has stressed that this coup attempt “has failed just like the attempt” this Sunday, in which thousands of Bolsonaro supporters stormed Congress, the Supreme Court and the palace presidential.

“(This) emphasizes that what we saw here on January 8 was not something isolated. In fact, it was an element of a chain, a link in a coup movement in Brazil and that there were amazing preparatory acts such as this decree of military intervention.” , has highlighted.

“And gravity is obvious because this is unconstitutional,” Dino assured in an interview with the CNN television network, collected by the aforementioned newspaper.

Likewise, the Minister of Labor, Luiz Marinho, has described as “very serious” the “project decree for the (now) former president to annul the electoral results.” “Another proof of the attempted coup”, he has reiterated.

The Brazilian Federal Police (PF) found hours before at the home of the former Minister of Justice and Public Security Anderson Torres, who held office under the mandate of former President Jair Bolsonaro, a proposed decree to reverse the result of the elections in which the current Brazilian president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, won.

Torres explained that the decree to reverse the electoral result found by the Police in his home “was leaked out of context”, since the ministers receive documents and proposals “of the most diverse”. According to him, this draft would have been in a pile of documents that had been discarded.

The judge of the Supreme Court Alexandre de Moraes issued this week a search and arrest warrant against the former ministerial portfolio holder, after the Police pointed out “omission and collusion” of the security authorities of the Federal District in controlling the assault of the powers in Brasilia. After leaving the ministry, Torres became secretary of Public Security for the Federal District, a position from which he was removed after the anti-democratic acts on Sunday.
