A Brazilian Supreme Court judge removed the governor of the Federal District of Brasilia, Ibaneis Rocha, from office for 90 days, after the assault this Sunday by thousands of Bolsonaro radicals on the headquarters of the three powers to try to overthrow the president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
The decision was made by magistrate Alexandre de Moraes, who also ordered the state security bodies and forces to act to release any type of road or public building occupied by supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro throughout the country.
The judge, who responded to a request from Lula’s allies, indicated that “the violent escalation” against the headquarters of the three powers “could only occur with the consent, and even the effective participation,” of the competent authorities for public security and intelligence.
Likewise, it stressed that the organization of these coup acts was a “notorious and well-known fact, which was reported by the Brazilian press.”
