At Lira’s request, the TSE orders the TRE-AL judge to investigate the summons

In the ruling, the mediator said he saw the necessary elements to open the process “without a preliminary judgment on the merits.”

The Chief Inspector of the Supreme Electoral Court (TSE), Minister Benedito Gonçalves, on Thursday the 13th, launched a procedure to investigate the alleged connection between Magistrate Mauricio Cesar Breda Filho, substitute member of the Regional Electoral Court of Alagoas (TRE-AL). ), and outgoing state governor Paulo Dantas (MDB).

The decision was made at the request of the president of the Chamber, Artur Lira (PP-AL), who supports the election of Dantas’ opponent, Rodrigo Cunha (Brasil Unia), in the Alagoas government race. Lira claims the judge acted in favor of Dantas and Senator-elect Renan Filho (MDB-AL). Both are supported by Senator Renan Calheiros (MDB-AL), with whom Lira traded accusations on Twitter this week.

The president of the chamber claims that Breda Filón was appointed by Dantas as the president of the Alagoas State Council of Public Security (Conseg-AL) and, despite being licensed from that position, he has “definitely a close connection” with the governor. He also claims that the judge made decisions “more favorable” to the coalition supporting the re-election of Dantas than to the PP-integrated coalition supporting the election of Cunha.

In the decision, the magistrate said he saw the necessary elements to open the process “without a preliminary judgment on the merits of the charges”. The minister noted that “although the defendant is licensed, there are indications that he is or at least connected to the office of the governor of Alagoas, whose current incumbent is up for re-election.”

Dantas is being investigated on suspicion of running a scheme to embezzle the salaries of parliament employees, the so-called “rachadinha”, when he was a state deputy. The governor denies any wrongdoing and says that the investigation has political motives to nominate his candidacy. He received the most votes in the first round and remains the leader in the polls.
