247 – The Federal Police (PF) found evidence that suggests that Jair Bolsonaro (PL) would have been one of the recipients of information from an illegal espionage scheme at the Brazilian Intelligence Agency (Abin), during the management of former director Alexandre Ramagem, today Congressman. The elements were presented to the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) and the Federal Supreme Court (STF), marking a new chapter in the ongoing investigations, reports UOL.
The evidence collected so far indicates that documents and dossiers produced by the so-called “parallel Abin” were printed and delivered directly to the Palácio do Planalto during the period of Jair Bolsonaro’s presidency. This discovery sheds light on the possible political and illegal use of the country’s intelligence services.
The PF investigation points out that, in February 2020, Alexandre Ramagem printed two lists of electoral inquiries being processed by the PF in Rio de Janeiro. These lists, considered confidential, reinforce suspicions of undue interference by Bolsonaro in the Rio PF Superintendence during the same period. Investigators are now focusing on identifying the origin of this information, analyzing access to the Federal Police system.
Furthermore, the episode coincides with the intensification of Abin’s use of the First Mile monitoring system during the 2020 elections. With half of the 60,000 queries to the system occurring during this period, the investigation suggests an instrumentalization of Abin for electoral purposes, in line with interests of the political core.
CONTINUES AFTER RECOMMENDATIONS
The discovery of dossiers printed in searches and seizures, covering topics such as the murder of Marielle Franco, raises the possibility that such materials were produced to be sent to recipients outside Abin, possibly at Palácio do Planalto.
The PF is also investigating whether the then Minister of the Institutional Security Office (GSI), General Augusto Heleno, was aware of and authorized the illegal espionage operations conducted by Ramagem. In this context, the general was summoned to give testimony, expanding the network of investigations into the possible connections of high levels of government in the plot.
