Bolsonaro and 22 others are expected to testify this Thursday (22)

This Thursday (22), the Federal Police (PF) should hear 23 people involved in the alleged coup plan that would have been articulated in 2023 to keep Jair Bolsonaro (PL) at the head of the Planalto Palace.

The testimonies, according to the CNNwill be promoted from 2:30 pm in eight federation units: Brasília, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, Paraná, Mato Grosso do Sul and Ceará.

The police force is investigating whether assistants and allies from the previous administration discussed a plan, contained in a “coup draft”, to not allow Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva to assume power if elected.

The investigation is based on video, messages and documents presented in the wake of the plea agreement by former aide-de-camp Mauro Cid.

One of those investigated is Jair Bolsonaro. His defense tried three times to postpone the trial, but Minister Alexandre de Moraes, of the Supreme Court, denied the requests.

The defense claimed that they wanted to have access to what was obtained by the PF in search and seizure. The minister, however, stated that the investigation files have already been provided to the defense.

Unable to postpone the testimony, Bolsonaro must appear, but intends to remain silent. Everyone under investigation has the right to remain silent so as not to produce evidence against themselves.
