“To be a serious country, the laws must be serious,” said the prosecutor in an interview with Pânico.
The program this Friday, the 8th Panic waited for the prosecutor Danelon said. In an interview, she reflected on the Brazilian prison system and brought Car wash as an example of fighting impunity between political and economic power. “What we witnessed before Lava Jato and Mensalão: the prisoners were poorer people. With Lava Jato, we showed that powerful people, with political or economic power, can be imprisoned, but they must be kept in prison,” he said. The prosecutor criticized the cancellations of the process in the operation and advocated a tightening of the laws in the country. “Anyone who denies Lava Jato and says it does not exist is not telling the truth. People need to know the situation in which we live. To be a serious country, the laws must be serious.”
For Danelo, the end of Lava Jato was not because of the president Jair Bolsonaro. She argues that the operation began to fall apart from the Legislature and STF. “What Lava Jato ended up with was a combination of efforts. It started in the Legislature, when it started passing anti-corruption legislation. “According to the STF, when it started releasing the people who were arrested and canceling the proceedings,” he said. “The culmination of the coup against Lava Jato was the annulment of four lawsuits by former president Lula,” he emphasized.
