The Senate’s Commission of Economic Affairs approved a request for both Guedes and Campos Neto, president of the Central Bank—who kept an offshore firm in Panama until October 2020—to provide clarifications. On Monday (Oct. 4), a preliminary inquiry on the case was opened by the PGR.
Bolsonaro criticized Supreme Court justices and the electronic voting system. As a response, top court chief Justice Luiz Fux and Justice Luis Roberto Barroso, head of the Superior Electoral Court, rebutted the president’s remarks.
Early in the plenary session, Fux read the address in which he declared that the institutional criticism on the Court’s work must not be confused with “narratives aimed at discrediting the Supreme Court and its members, as those that have been made widespread by the head of the nation.”
The leaders expressed solidarity with “the justices of the Supreme Court and their family members, as they are faced with constant threats and attacks.”
