Senator Flávio Bolsonaro (PL-RJ) and councilor Carlos Bolsonaro (Republicans-RJ) asked for tributes to at least 16 police officers denounced by the Public Ministry of Rio de Janeiro as members of criminal organizations.

This is what a cross between the names of the police officers honored by the president’s two sons and information from the databases of the country’s Courts of Justice points out. The results of the survey are on the podcast “UOL Investigates: Polícia Bandida e o Clã Bolsonaro”, which premiered this Friday (23).

These honorees were arrested and denounced in eight of the most important operations to combat organized crime in Rio, between 2006 and 2022: Calabar, Quarto Elemento, Purificação, Untouchables, Gladiador, Amigos S/A, Segurança S/A and Águia na Cabeça. In this group are Adriano Nóbrega, Major Ronald Pereira and, more recently, the delegate and former head of the Civil Police Allan Turnowski.

The investigations, carried out by the Federal Police, the Internal Affairs and the Public Ministry, revealed gangs assembled by police to practice extortion, corruption, kidnappings, homicides, among other crimes. In all these cases, the police were on the payroll of the slot machine mafia, drug factions, or militia groups.

Jair Bolsonaro has already said publicly that he was the one who asked his children to pay tribute to police officers. Asked about the decorations, the advice of President Jair Bolsonaro and Senator Flávio said, in a note, that “over the years in politics, we have always paid tribute to police officers who stood out for their services to the population. At the time of the tributes, it was impossible foresee that some of these police officers could dishonor the uniform”. See the full note at the end of this text. Carlos Bolsonaro’s adviser did not return.

Until 2018, Flávio and Carlos delivered medals and motions to 707 people. Some of these people have been awarded more than once. This is the case of Adriano da Nóbrega, for example, who received a motion in 2003 and then the Tiradentes medal in 2005.

Adriano da Nóbrega died in a police operation in Bahia in February 2020, after spending a year as a fugitive from justice. He was denounced in Operation Untouchables by the MP-RJ (Rio Public Ministry).

Flávio Bolsonaro told the Rio de Janeiro prosecutor that he met him through Fabrício Queiroz, his former adviser, during shooting classes in the 2000s.

75 officers honored responded to lawsuits

The first tributes paid took place in 2001 during Carlos Bolsonaro’s first term in the City Council. The cross-checking of data also showed that, of the total number of honorees, 596 were police officers and 75 of them responded to criminal proceedings. Of every ten people that Flávio and Carlos honored, one responded to a criminal case in court.

The crime of murder was to which this group of honorees responded the most. In all, 36 police officers were honored by the clan and, at the same time, responded to legal proceedings for the death of 39 people.

Participating in these violent operations was a criterion for approaching the Bolsonaros and winning a medal. In 57 honors, the word “death” was cited as a justification for granting recognition.

Among the honorees of Carlos Bolsonaro’s first term, in 2003, are precisely Adriano da Nóbrega and Fabrício Queiroz.

Flávio asked for his first tribute, in 2003, to the Civil Police inspector Mário Franklin Leite Mustrange de Carvalho, known as Marinho. He was targeted by Operation Gladiator. Another target of the operation was Hélio Machado da Conceição, known as Helinho. He also received a tribute from Flávio, in 2005. Operation Gladiator pointed out the involvement of the top police, at the time, with the misdemeanor mafia.

The list of crimes that these police officers responded to includes threat, criminal association, improbity, extortion, bidding fraud, procedural fraud, homicide, administrative improbity, criminal organization, embezzlement, receiving, domestic violence, attempted murder and many others.

Full note from Jair and Flávio Bolsonaro

“The public security agenda is and has always been an important banner for the Bolsonaro family. Over the years in politics, we have always paid tribute to police officers who stood out for their services to the population. At the time of the tributes, it was impossible to predict that some of these police officers could dishonor the uniform.

Regarding the work done with the Military Police Prison Unit, the actions were public and widely publicized. As the report itself shows, we work to resolve a conflict and prevent the situation from developing into something more serious. Working to resolve a crisis and avoid damage to the State does not constitute irregularity, on the contrary.”
