The jewelry case is heterodox, but let’s wait for the investigation

Mendes commented on the incident during the 17th Sports Management Seminar held at the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) headquarters in Rio.

Minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), Gilmar Mendes, described the case of jewelry given to the Bolsonaro family by the Saudi Arabian government as “very heterodox”.

“It is very unusual in everything, but we will wait for the investigation. Of course, the Federal Police and the Public Ministry will discuss it and there will be statements and statements,” the minister told reporters this Saturday afternoon (11).

Mendes commented on the incident at the 17th Sports Management Seminar held at the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) headquarters in Rio. The event is organized by FGV in partnership with the Brazilian Institute for Learning, Development and Research (IDP).

He said that for now he does not see the need to act in the case of the National Security Service. “First of all, I don’t see any decision (need) of the Supreme Court unless something is discussed in habeas corpus. This is being investigated by the Federal Police in the first instance. The investigation will be followed by the Federal Court of the Federal District,” he said.

Responding to a bill by federal deputy Pedro Paulo (PSD-RJ) that establishes rules for gifts to Brazilian authorities, Mendez said he understands that there are already predictions in this regard. “If I’m not mistaken, there are already rules of restrictions. I have to look, I know there are limits to what you (authority) can stand for. It used to be $100,” he said, not sure.

According to Pedro Paulo, also present at the event, there is only one infra-legal regulation at the level of the Comptroller General of the Union (CGU) and the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU), but no exclusive legal text. The PL, which it calls the Arab Jewelry Law, intends to bring the authorities’ rules closer to the limits that apply to civilians bringing goods from abroad, with a ceiling of R$1,000 tax-free, with the provision of graduated punishment that can. arrived, arresting offenders.
