Lewandowski questioned PF about the exposure of prisoners in the Marielle case


The Minister of Justice, Ricardo Lewandowski, was uncomfortable with the exposure given by the Federal Police to the arrests of police chief Rivaldo Barbosa and the brothers Domingos and Chiquinho Brazão, suspected of being the masterminds behind the death of councilwoman Marielle Franco (PSol).

The three were arrested in Rio de Janeiro, on Sunday (24/3), and taken to Brasília on a PF plane. In the federal capital, they disembarked on the runway, which allowed the moment to be recorded by the press. The Brazão brothers came down in handcuffs.

Upset by the exposure, Lewandowski sought out the general director of the PF, Andrei Rodrigues, last week. According to the column, the Minister of Justice asked why the trio did not disembark in a hangar at Brasília airport in a more discreet way.

Andrei, according to PF sources, responded to Lewandowski that the corporation’s aircraft had to stop on the runway at Brasília airport, as it could not fit inside a hangar. The prisoners were transported in an Embraer ERJ 170-200 model jet, with capacity for 87 people.
