image for Federal Police Names Carlos Bolsonaro as Organizer of Fake News Criminal Scheme

Brazil's Federal Police named Carlos Bolsonaro, son of President Jair Bolsonaro, as an organizer of a criminal scheme that spread fake news.

The Supreme Court conducted the investigation.

Maurício Valeixo, the federal police director dismissed by Bolsonaro, was superintendent of the police in Paraná during the same period and was appointed by Moro to command the police.

There is no doubt that Bolsonaro forced Valeixo out because of the growing evidence that his son, a councilman in Rio de Janeiro, took part in the criminal scheme.

Pushing Valeixo out could have helped the president to obtain information about the Supreme Court's investigation or change the group of delegates responsible for the case.

Justice Dias Toffoli, the president of the Supreme Court, opened the inquiry in March to investigate false news against the Justices.

Sought in writing and by telephone, Carlos' chief of staff did not respond to the report's contacts. »
