SAO PAULO – Three Supreme Court Courts on Monday criticized the son of President Frontier Jair Bolsonaro to say that Brazil’s Supreme Court could be closed if it tried to remove his father from the presidency.
Chief Justice Jose Dias Toffoli said in a statement that “attacks the court attacks democracy” as statements by congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro dominated news stations in Latin America’s largest nation.
Justice Alexandre de Moraes demanded an investigation as to whether the comments threatened national security. Justice Celso de Mello, the longest serving member of the Supreme Federal Tribunal, told the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper that the statements of the Higher Justice Congress were “coupongering” and “irresponsible”.
They responded to a video released over the weekend that showed a speech in July by Eduardo Bolsonaro to people who studied for a national test to become federal police. It started alarm clocks in Brazil, which had a military dictatorship between 1
964 and 1985.
Jair Bolsonaro, a right-wing right-wing captain, heads all investigations on his way to his runoff Sunday with left Fernando Haddad. In the presidential competition, the first round of October 7 with 13 candidates, Bolsonaro received 46 percent of the votes, while Haddad finished second with 29 percent.
In the video, Eduardo Bolsonaro answered a question of what the campaign would do if his father won the presidency and was removed from the office.
All such features “will be them against us,” he said. “People are doing fun, because if you want to close the highest court you know what you’re doing? You do not even need to send a jeep. Send two soldiers.”
Then he added, “What is the highest court, man? remove a justice pen, who is he in the streets? If you arrest a justice, do you think people protest at his favor? Millions on the street? “
Eduardo Bolsonaro speculated that a move to free his father could be based on claims of illegal campaign funding. Brazil’s electoral court initiated an investigation of that issue last week.
The son tweeted on Monday that his statements to turn off the court were taken out of context.
“I never tried to finish the Supreme Federal Tribunal” said, but instead, she only responded to a “bizarre hypothesis”.
When asked about the comments on Sunday, Jair Bolsonaro, who apparently did not know who had made the statements, said in a video published on various social media would close the Supreme Court “need to go to a psychiatrist.”
Told that the statements were made by his son, Elder Bolsonaro said: “It may not be. If so, the comments were taken from the context.”
Also on Monday, Facebook announced that it deleted 68 pages and 43 accounts that promote Bolsonaro’s candidacy.
Facebook said the decision was based on behavior, not the content of material associated with a pro-Bolsonaro group called Raposo Fernandes Associados.
“Spammers have increasingly – regardless of ideology – used politically sensational content to build audience and direct traffic to their sites outside of Facebook and make money every time a person visits these sites,” Facebook said in a statement. “That’s exactly what these pages and accounts were removed today did.”
Raposo Fernandes Associados did not respond to a request for comments.
Haddad had a good deal of good news and got the ecolabel Marina Silva, who was one of the losing presidential candidates in the opening round.
Earlier, Haddad said the authorities were hugged by members of armed forces supporting Bolsonaro.
“Our institutions are threatened by the armed forces of the armed forces,” said Haddad. “If he (Bolsonaro) has the courage to threaten our democracy before the election, guess what he will do with the support of the electorate.”
