As information about the life of the anesthesiologist Giovanni Quintella Bezerra, 32 years old, arrested in the act for the crime of rape of a vulnerable person against a patient drugged for the birth of the baby, at the Hospital da Mulher Heloneida Studart, in São João de Meriti, in the Baixada Fluminense, but those close to him are shocked by the details of your attitudes. That’s because until then, say the people close to him and heard by universe, Giovanni would never have shown any signs of being a potential criminal. In addition, Giovanni is the son of an acclaimed obstetrician.
A 24-year-old nurse who spoke to universe he said he knew and followed Giovanni through the networks. Without wanting to be identified, the resident of Manaus (AM) said that during his conversations the anesthesiologist was always very attentive. “He was a great person. I didn’t know about that side of him, but you never know what someone else is thinking. I never imagined he would do these things. I was stunned.”
A college roommate from UniFOA (Centro Universitário de Volta Redonda), where Giovanni graduated in 2017, told the reporter by text message that he had never heard any complaints against the anesthesiologist. “If there were reports of the subject’s misconduct as a student at the time, he would have been dismissed”, he guarantees.
Soon after the images showing Giovanni committing the crime of rape of a vulnerable person were spread, representatives of UniFoa issued a note of repudiation in which they say that throughout its 54 years of existence it has been training professionals to exercise their professions with responsibility, ethics and respect.
The note also informs that it vehemently repudiates the practice carried out by any of the people who have been or are part of its social body.
In a conversation with supporters about crime, however, President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) criticized the teaching of “ideology” in universities and questioned: “What is education? this guy? What did he learn in college?”
universe contacted the press office of the institution to pass on the president’s speech and also to determine if there has already been any complaint of abusive behavior by Giovanni in the unit, but by email the institution informed that its statement will only be the note of rejection and also that it could not share information about the former student due to the General Data Protection Act (LGPD).
For the student heard by universe, questioning the “ideology” of the place where Giovanni graduated is “transferring responsibility”. He wrote: “As if the nature, the character of the people were a subject of the curriculum.”
Father of arrested anesthesiologist is praised doctor
In addition to having worked in at least 10 public and private hospitals, Giovanni is a partner with his father, gynecologist and mastologist Ronaldo Gripp Bezerra, in an imaging clinic.
Ronaldo is a specialist in laparoscopy, has an office in Vila Isabel (north zone) and Barra da Tijuca (west zone) and opened Femi Video Clinica Ltda in 1997. The establishment provides prenatal/birth and birth services and is located in Vila Isabel. Giovanni joined the company in January 2018, shortly after graduating as a doctor in Sul Fluminense.
On search engines about Ronaldo, comments praise the doctor as “excellent professional”, “the best doctor in the world”, “totally reliable” and “the best mastologist.”
universe tried to contact the available numbers of his office, but no one answered.
Giovanni’s mother, Andrea Quintella Bezerra, has a master’s degree in Business Administration and Development and is a professor at Universidade Estácio de Sá, where she coordinates the Business Administration course.
According to a report in the newspaper O Globo, since Giovanni was arrested, his parents have been going to the place where he lived alone on rent on Avenida Lúcio Costa, in Barra, to vacate the property.
The article points out that the duo arrives at the place between 6 am and 7 am with a serious face and leaves without talking to anyone. The request to release the apartment as soon as possible came from the owner, who was shocked by the crime, according to the newspaper.
Residents interviewed by the newspaper reported that Giovanni was extremely reserved and did not usually talk to anyone in the condominium, and that every day he went to the gym next to the building where he lived to train with a personal trainer.
The Civil Police of Rio investigates more than 30 possible cases of rape of patients who were treated by the anesthesiologist. The delegate Bárbara Lomba, responsible for the investigation, informed that the Deam (Women’s Office) will analyze case by case. “There are more than 30 patients identified [também] in other hospitals and we will continue to identify. There are no reports yet. We need to investigate. First, do a screening, know the type of procedure, what happened and then we go deeper”, she explains.
