Anderson Torres is due to be heard at a scheduled CPI hearing on January 8
The former Security Secretary did not attend the District Court this Thursday, but his testimony was rescheduled under the condition of confidentiality for next week.
Former Secretary of Public Security of the Federal District and former Minister of Justice in the Bolsonaro government, Anderson Torreswill give evidence next Thursday, the 16th, in private, from members of the parliamentary investigative committee of undemocratic acts installed in the District Chamber of Brasilia. Initially, Torres was supposed to testify this Thursday, the 9th, but he did not appear after Minister Alexandre de Moraes, of the Federal Supreme Court, gave him this opportunity. Torres’ defense asked that the statement be given in private, to avoid exposure of his image in the press. The president of the CPI, district deputy Chico Vigilante (PT), was questioned by other parliamentarians about whether the information privately shared by Torres could be published. He replied that the information will be public. Torres has been in prison since January 14 and is being investigated on suspicion of inaction during the anti-democratic acts at the headquarters of the Three Powers on January 8. He denies all the charges.
