In the sentence issued on Tuesday (30), the justice understood that the politicians diverted R$ 131.8 thousand of public resources for their own benefit. Defendants can appeal freely. One of the investigated even embezzled R$84 thousand.

Irituia is a municipality in the northeast of Pará, with about 32 thousand inhabitants, according to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE).

The Public Ministry of the State of Pará (MPPA) denounced the crimes in 2015, after the Irituia Prosecutor’s Office received an anonymous letter, denouncing that the politicians received amounts supposedly corresponding to the payment of per diems.

However, according to the complaint, it was a supplement to subsidies, since the Executive had vetoed the increase granted by the Legislative Power to former councilors.

Still based on the complaint, “the payment of per diems occurred so that the councilors would not create a kind of animosity towards the head of the municipal executive; and, thus, the support base for the executive would not be compromised”.

During the process, twenty witnesses were heard by the Justice, in addition to the interrogations of the 13 defendants.

Among those sentenced, Waldemir Oliveira da Costa (PSC) and Manoel Lucilo Cordeiro da Fonseca (PTB) are still councilors of the municipality of Irituia.

O g1 Pará sought the city council and the two councilors for positioning and awaits return. The report also tried to contact each of the former councilors in search of a position on the conviction.
