The former governor of Rio de Janeiro, Sergio Cabraland former first lady, Adriana Ancelmo, will have to return R$ 10 million to the state. The decision was taken this Wednesday, the 6th, by the 8th Criminal Chamber of the Court Court of Justice. The reason was the alleged use of the state helicopter between 2008 and 2014 for private purposes. The investigation alleges that friends, relatives and employees would have boarded the vehicle during Cabral’s administration. Despite the million dollar fine, it is less than the one given in the first count. Previously, the penalty was R$19 million. Adriana’s defense stated that the decision is totally divorced from the supporting elements, illegal and unjust and added that it will try to overturn the decision in the higher courts. Sérgio Cabral’s lawyers, on the other hand, denied the helicopter rides and called the decision “illegal” and “unreasonable”. Cabral has been in prison since 2016 and is a defendant in 20 cases, having been sentenced to more than 400 years in prison.
