The Senate of Brazil will accuse Bolsonaro de Homicide for his management of the pandemic

The Special Commission installed in the Senate of Brazil to investigate the possible offenses committed by the Government of Jair Bolsono in the management of the pandemic will accuse the president of 11 offenses, including the default homicide. Senator Renan Calheiros, Rapporteur of the report, will present the text tomorrow Wednesday but already advanced that the accusations will be weight.

According to him, Bolsonaro, many of his ministers and other members of the government acted for the COVID-19 to propagate as quickly as possible. "With this behavior, the government, who had the legal duty to act, consented to the death of Brazilians and Brazilians," he said. More than 600,000 people lost their lives in the country, and the Senators believe that the government's denialist policy played a key role in that tragic result.

The report checks the existence of the so-called 'parallel cabinet', composed of doctors, politicians and entrepreneurs who advised Bolsonaro "with the intention of immunizing the population through natural pollution," prioritizing early treatment with pressed medicines and Encouraging non-compliance with non-pharmacological measures, such as social distancing. Also, remember that there was a "deliberate delay" in the purchase of vaccines, which ended thousands of lives.

After five months of public interrogations that filled television hours and contributed to the popularity of the president further, the Senate finished his work. The Commission collected important evidence through the hearings and now the report will be delivered to the Prosecutor's Office, which will decide whether or not it imputes to Bolsorso and the rest of defendants. It is expected to be accused of 70 people and two companies, for a total of 24 offenses. Most have to do with the defense of ineffective medications to treat the Covid-19.

Presecibably, Bolsonaro will be charged with 11 offenses, based on the Criminal Code, the Constitution and the Rome Statute: Crime by Epidemic with a result of death, infringement of preventive health measures, irregular use of public funds, incitement to crime, falsification of documents , charlatanism, prevarication, indigenous genocide, crime of responsibility, crime against humanity and default homicide.

In recent days there were strong tensions among the Senators, especially since some did not see clear the legal basis to accuse Bolsonaro of Genocide (given that there would be a deliberate intention to cause death) or of dolly homicide, nor to include Your children in the accusations. The final wording of the report will be known as of Wednesday, when the official reading is done, and the next week will be voted, although it is expected to be approved without problems. Afterwards, the ball will be on the roof of the prosecution.
