The plea agreement for Ronnie Lessa, accused of being the murderer of councilwoman Marielle Franco and Anderson Gomes, only came to fruition after the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) called Rio prosecutors to validate the unification of sentences and convictions. future cases in at least ten cases of criminal proceedings and investigations involving the former PM.

The Federal Public Ministry, in Brasília, called prosecutors to try to achieve this unification, since several prosecutors have no direct connection with the investigations into the murder of the councilwoman, six years ago. They were consulted to find out if they would accept any legal benefits for Lessa from the denunciation of the Marielle case.

Proposing the terms of a plea bargain is a two-way street. The employee delivers what he knows and, in return, receives benefits from the courts if the accusation progresses and comes to fruition.

Thus, a legal engineering of the agreement was created by the PGR, considering the entire history of cases involving Ronnie Lessa. Once the green light was finally obtained from the parties in other cases, the plea bargain moved towards being endorsed by the Federal Supreme Court (STF).

According to sources involved in the Marielle case, the Federal Police (PF) received several requests from the PGR for investigations based on the final report presented to the STF.

The parties are in constant conversations. The investigations are ongoing and there is still no word on when a complaint will be filed against the principals.
