Letter to Jurists Worldwide

“We address the international legal community – jurists, scholars, researchers, and legal professionals – to request your honorable attention to what has currently been happening in Brazil. The current events shall have dreadful impacts on leading all young Latin American democracies to political and institutional frailty. The state of law in our country has been corroded after the coup d’état against President Dilma. Such coup was triggered by means of congressmen, mainly physiological and corrupt ones, who have links to illicit economic forces. The normative force of the Constitution has been suffocated, and, in partnership with an oligopolistic media, those congressmen made the ‘exception’ become the norm with repeated violations of constitutional principles and norms that characterize and support a healthy democratic life.

Deforming a set of processes against systemic corruption in the country – anti-corruption measures represent a fair act performed by the Public Prosecutor’s Office that has earned the sympathy of the population and of people from all social classes and democratic parties in our nation – is a consequence of anti-corruption measures being used for the purpose of political ‘instrumentalization’ performed by right-wing and far-right-wing sectors in the Public Prosecutor’s Office that now boast of being moral purists healing the national public moral. They do so, especially, to attack President Lula personally. They aim to prevent him from running in the upcoming presidential elections. No person shall be above the law, and we do not oppose any kind of investigation or taking whoever to court; however, with the support of some members of the Judiciary branch, of the Justice System, not only as regards Lula, but especially because of him, such members have suffocated the right to full defense, treating Lula in an unequal and discriminatory fashion, and creating procedural norms of ‘exception’ against him and various other people under investigation, and who have been sued. Such scenario is typical ‘lawfare’ subordinated to the electoral process.

The following are the de facto and the legal elements that characterize this perversion process and the process of weakening institutional functions of the democratic garantism:

1. Using ‘plea bargains’ as a political instrument with massive adherence of the media to set directions and selectivity for information leakage;

2. Resorting to coercitive conductions, which are unnecessary and do not comply with procedural elements of the formal state of law. Those coercitive procedures have clearly served a political purpose. They have had the overt purpose of tarnishing political leaders that had not even been summoned to court to testify. Such measures have now temporarily been deferred by a monocratic decision of a Supreme Justice;

3. Keeping long-term, co-active protective custody meant to have people testify specifically against President Lula, the preferred target of Curitiba Prosecutors;

4. Having judges, associate judges, and Supreme Justices publically take a stance, participating in the political debate, and, oftentimes, stating opinions and electoral views about the processes under their jurisdiction;

5. Having the media humiliate defendants, people under investigation, and people serving their sentences. The media ‘judges’ them in advance, outside the scope of the lawsuit, nominating and celebrating members of the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Judiciary as if they were heroes who provide support for the media’s own pre-trials.

It is core that the aforementioned data is clearly construed by the international legal community from whom we request support for the struggle of Brazilians committed to public ethics, legal security, protecting our people’s sovereignty, and restoring democracy.”

Denouncing Brasil

I HAVE DECIDED TO CREATE THIS BLOG AFTER HAVING CLOSED A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT WITH 5000 FRIENDS THAT SPREAD OMITTED TRUTHS ON THE CONTEMPORARY DICTATORSHIP THAT BRAZIL HAS BEEN FACING.
ALSO, I HAVE HEARD A NUMBER OF OTHER SENSUOUS REPORTS OF PROTEST CHANNELS, INDEPENDENT JOURNALISTS AND PUBLIC FIGURES, DENOUNCING A MODERN COUP WHOSE DYNAMICS INCLUDE THE MUTUAL PROTECTION OF THE ONES WHO HAVE POWER, THE SURRENDER OF NATIONAL WEALTH TO FOREIGN CAPITAL, AND AN UNFAIR AND RUTHLESS PERSECUTION OF THE POOR’S REPRESENTATIVES.
SO I HAVE DECIDED TO SPREAD AROUND THE WORLD WHAT MEDIA DOESN’T SHOW. PLEASE, OBSERVE THE SEQUENCE OF SOME EVENTS THAT IN FACT HAPPENED IN BRAZIL AND ARE HIDDEN BY THE TV CHANNELS:
1 – WIKILEAKS SHOWS THE WORLD THAT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ARE CARRYING OUT ILLEGAL WIRETAPPING FROM BRAZIL’S PRESIDENT, DILMA ROUSSEFF, AND SEVERAL SENIORS EXECUTIVES OF THE BRAZILIAN COMPANY PETROBRÁS. SHE CANCELLED HER OFFICIAL MEETING AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
2 – AFTER DISPUTING AGAINST THE CURRENT SENATOR CAUGHTED LATER BY THE FEDERAL POLICE REQUESTING 2 MILLION REAIS AÉCIO NEVES, WHO’S TANCREDO NEVES’ GRANDSON (ONE OF BRAZIL’S EX PRESIDENT), DILMA ROUSSEFF IS RE-ELECTED BY 54 MILLION OF BRAZILIANS.
3 – THE FEDERAL JUDGE CALLED SERGIO MORO WHO HEADS THE CAR WASH OPERATION, ILLEGALLY SENDS A WIRETAP BETWEEN PRESIDENT DILMA ROUSSEF AND FORMER PRESIDENT LULA TO “JORNAL NACIONAL” (ONE OF THE MOST WATCHED TV NEWS IN BRAZIL), AS WELL AS OTHER PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN HIS FAMILY AND HIS LAWYERS, WHICH IS TRANSMITTED BY THE NEWS AS IF IT WAS DILMA’S INTENTION TO NAME THE EX PRESIDENT LULA TO A MINISTER POSITION TO PROTECT HIM FROM JUSTICE.
4 – NOTHING IS PROVED, BUT THE NEWS CERTAINLY IS BEING MANIPULATED BY THE MEDIA’S OPINION AND EXCESSIVELY EXPLOITED TO MAKE THE IMAGE OF THE FORMER PRESIDENT BEFORE PUBLIC OPINION THE WORST POSSIBLE. LULA IS ILLEGALLY ARESTED ON THE VIRACOPOS AIRPORT BY THE JUDGE OF THE CAR WASH OPERATION, WHILE HIS HOUSE AND HIS FAMILY’S HOUSES WERE COMPLETELY INSPECTED AND TURNED UPSIDE DOWN BY THE POLICE. BUT THEY DIDN´T FIND ANYTHING. ALL OPERATION IS BROADCAST LIVE BY THE TV CHANNELS.
5 – AFTER COUNTLESS EVIDENCES OF CORRUPTION AGAINST EDUARDO CUNHA, HE WAS ONLY ARRESTED AND REMOVED FROM THE PRESIDENCY OF THE CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES AS SOON AS THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS WAS COMPLETED. THE END OF THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS WAS BROADCAST LIVE TO ALL BRAZIL ON A SUNDAY, WHEN MORE THAN 70% OF THE PARTICIPATING DEPUTIES WERE (AND STILL ARE) BEING INVESTIGATED FOR CORRUPTION AND MONEY LAUNDERING CRIMES WITH A LOT OF PROOFS SUCH AS AUDIOS, FILMING, BANK ACCOUNTS ABROAD AND BAGS OF MONEY.
6 – WIKILEAKS DENOUNCES THAT THEN PRESIDENT MICHEL TEMER MAINTAINED CONTACT WITH THE GAS STION “SHELL” LOBBYISTS AND OTHER ENGLISH AND NORTH AMERICAN COMPANIES. THE BRAZILIAN MEDIA COMPLETELY OMITS THIS INFORMATION. AN ALLY SENATOR OF MICHEL TEMER AND EDUARDO CUNHA IN FAVOR OF THE IMPEACHMENT, IS CAUGHT IN A TELEPHONE CALL MENTIONING “A GREAT NATIONAL AGREEMENT WITH THE SUPREME COURT WITH EVERYTHING”.
7 – DILMA ROUSSEF WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY BY A TECHNICAL REPORT OF THE SENATE OF INVOLVEMENT IN THE CRIMES IN WHICH SHE HAD BEEN ACCUSED ON THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS, BUT NOW IT´S TOO LATE.
8 – THE SUPREME FEDERAL COURT MINISTER WHO WOULD RELEASE AND PROSECUTE ODEBRECHT’S LIST OF NAMES FOR THE INVESTIGATION THAT INCLUDED PRESIDENT MICHEL TEMER, AÉCIO NEVES, EDUARDO CUNHA AND HIS ALLIES, DIES IN A MYSTERIOUS AIR PLANE CRASH THAT HAS NOT YET BEEN EXPLAINED. THE CASE IS QUICKLY FORGOTTEN BY THE MEDIA’S OMISSION.
9 – MEANWHILE, THE TWO FAMILIES THAT OWNS THE MONOPOLY OF TVS CHANNELS IN BRAZIL DO NOT STOP STAMPING COVERS AND NEWSPAPER HEADLINES PORTRAYING THE PRESIDENT LULA AS THE MOST DESPICABLE THIEF IN ALL BRAZILIAN HISTORY. BUT THERE IS NO REAL EVIDENCES. 
10 – LULA IS THE TARGET OF SEVERAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS IN WHICH HIS DEFENSE CLAIMS THE ABSENCE OF EVIDENCE TO CONVICT HIM AS GUILTY. THE DEFENSE ALSO ALLEGES THE PARTIALITY OF THE JUDGE OF THE CAR WASH OPERATION, WHO REFUSES TO LISTEN TO THE DEFENSE’S WITNESSES, SUCH AS LAWYER TACLA DURAN, WHO IS TAKING REFUGE IN SPAIN, AND THIS SAME JUDGE OFTEN GOES TO THE UNITED STATES WHERE HE RECEIVES PRIZES AND IS TREATED AS A CELEBRITY.
11 – LULA´S WIFE DIES AS A RESULT OF A HEMORRHAGIC STROKE AND MEDIA SHOWS LULA AS A PSYCHO THAT STILL WANTS TO BE A PRESIDENT. BEFORE IT, DOCTORS AND RICH PEOPLE IN BRAZIL WRITE IN SOCIAL MEDIA THAT WISHES HER DEATH AND OTHER TERRIBLE THINGS ESTIMULATED BY MEDIA TO HATE LULA AND HIS FAMILY.
12 – TACLA DURAN, A SPANISH REFUGEE WHO HAS BEEN ORDERED TO BE DETAINED BY THE JUDGE OF THE CAR WASH OPERATION, FACES HARSH EVIDENCE ALREADY HEARD IN SPAIN, WHERE HE PROVES THAT THE STATEMENTS OF THE CONVICTED PEOPLE WERE PREVIOUSLY MADE AND FORGED BY THE CAR WASH PROSECUTORS IN CURITIBA WHO BLACKMAILED THEM INTO ACCEPTING THE AGREEMENT WITH THREATS TO THE ARREST OF RELATIVES. IT´S ALL PROOVED BUT BRAZILIAN MEDIA AS ALWAYS, OMITTED THIS INFORMATION.
13 – GEOFREY ROBERTSON, A RENOWNED ENGLISH LAWYER IN THE WORLD, GOES ON TO DEFEND LULA AT THE UN AGAINST POLITICAL PERSECUTION IN BRAZIL. ALSO THE GREATEST BRAZILIAN JURISTS WRITE A BOOK IN WHICH THEY CONTEST LULA’S CONDEMNATION WITHOUT EVIDENCES OF FACT BUT ARE COMPLETELY IGNORED BY THE MEDIA.
14 – TWO DEPUTIES FROM LULA’S PARTY GO TO SPAIN TO COLLECT EVIDENCE AND LISTEN TO REFUGEE LAWYER TACLA DURAN IN SPAIN TO REINFORCE THE DEFENSE OF FORMER PRESIDENT LULA, BUT THE EFFORTS ARE IN VAIN AS THE JUDGE CONDEMNS HIM TO 9 YEARS IN PRISON.
15 – LULA LEADS ALL SEARCHES OF INTENT VOTE FOR THE 2018 ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT OF BRAZIL, BUT THE MEDIA HIDES THIS FACT AND DOES NOT STOP MANIPULATING THE TRUTH OF THE FACTS.
16 – THE CURRENT PRESIDENT OF BRAZIL, MICHEL TEMER, HAS BEEN INVESTIGATED IN 03 CASES FOR CORRUPTION, WITH BLATANT EVIDENCE ASKING THE FORMER DEPUTY EDUARDO CUNHA FOR MONEY, WHO IS IN PRISON, AND DID NOT DECLARE WHAT HE KNEW ABOUT THE ENTIRE PMDB SCHEME. HIS TRUSTED ASSESSOR, IN WHOSE AUDIO TEMER DETERMINES TO HAND OVER THE MONEY, IS CAUGHT BY POLICE AS HE LEAVES A PIZZERIA WITH A BLACK SUITCASE CONTAINING 500,000 REAIS.
17 – EXACTLY THE SAME DEPUTIES WHO CONDEMNED DILMA ROUSSEFF TO LOOSE HER POSITION AS PRESIDENT OF BRAZIL, ABSOLVED THE THEN PRESIDENT MICHEL TEMER IN 02 REQUESTS FROM THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE TO OPEN CORRUPTION CASES EVEN WITH ALL THE FLAGRANT EVIDENCE.
18 – MICHEL TEMER BEGAN A 180-DEGREE TURN IN  SOCIAL INCLUSION POLICY IMPLEMENTED IN BRAZIL AND A POLICY OF GRANTING THE PERMISSION TO EXPLOIT THE OIL THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY EXCLUSIVE TO PETROBRAS FOR COMPANIES SUCH AS SHELL AT EXTREMELY RIDICULOUS PRICES. IT HAS ISSUED DECREES THAT MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO PUNISH LARGE LANDOWNERS WHO USE SLAVE LABOR AND TO FORGIVE DEBTS OF HUGE COMPANIES THAT OWE BRAZILIAN SOCIAL SECURITY.
19 – THE POOR COMMUNITIES OF RIO DE JANEIRO EXPRESSED PROTESTS AGAINST THE ARREST OF FORMER PRESIDENT LULA AND DURING THE CARNIVAL PARADES WERE COWARDLY CENSORED.
20 – AFTER THAT MICHEL TEMER DECREED MILITARY INTERVENTION IN THE STATE OF RIO DE JANEIRO ALLEGING INCAPACITY OF THE STATE PUBLIC SECURITY, WHEN IN FACT HIS REAL INTENTION IS TO REPRESS THE POOR COMMUNITIES THAT SUPPORT LULA UNCONDITIONALLY. SOCIAL MEDIA THAT SUPPORT LULA HAVE BEEN MONITORED AND SEVERAL ALTERNATIVE MEDIA THAT PUBLICIZE THESE FACTS HAVE BEEN CANCELED OR BLOCKED, WHAT HAPPENED WITH ME LAST WEEK.
21 – THE ARGENTINE ARCHITECT ADOLFO PÉREZ ESQUIVEL, WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN 1980, DEMONSTRATED THE INTENTION OF INDICATING LULA TO THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE IN 2018 FOR HIS FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER IN BRAZIL AND IN THE WORLD AND OFFER A DECENT LIFE PERSPECTIVE FOR THE POOR PEOPLE.
22 – YESTERDAY A BLACK WOMAN CALLED MARIELLE FRANCO, A CITY COUNCIL MEMBER OF PSOL, A LEFT PARTY, AND HER DRIVER, WERE EXECUTED BY TWO “UNIDENTIFIED” ATTACKERS ON A DOWNTOWN STREET. ON SUNDAY, BEFORE GET MURDERED, SHE DENOUNCED THE DEATH OF MATHEUS MELO BY THE POLICE. A YOUNG GUY THAT WAS GOING HOME AFTER HE WENT TO CHURCH IN HIS COMMUNITY. THAT’S THE MOTIVATION OF THE MILITARY INTERVENTION IN RIO: TO FRIGHTEN THE PARTIES AND POOR PEOPLE THAT SUPPORTS LULA, EQUALITY AND THE HUMAN RIGHTS. IT’S A DISSIMULATED BUT REALY AGGRESSIVE COUP.
I PLEASE, PLEASE, ASK THIS BLOG FOLLOWERS AROUND THE WORLD WHO ARE THIRSTY FOR JUSTICE TO SHARE , DENOUNCE AND SPREAD THE CONTENT REPRODUCED HERE, IN ORDER TO OBTAIN REAL INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE TO INTERRUPT THE COUP IN BRAZIL.
