Minister Luís Roberto Barroso, of the STF (Federal Supreme Court), filed this Tuesday (29) two requests for the opening of an investigation against President Jair Bolsonaro for alleged irregularities involving Petrobras.

The petitions —one presented by PT senators and another by the opposition leader in the Senate, Randolfe Rodrigues (Rede-AP)— were motivated by news published in June this year by the Metrópoles portal pointing to possible crimes attributed to Bolsonaro. According to the report, the former president of Petrobras Roberto Castello Branco would have said that on his cell phone there would be “messages that would incriminate” the president of the Republic.

Barroso argued that he took the decision to archive the petitions based on the position of the PGR (Attorney General of the Republic).

“The Attorney General’s Office, in its statement, points out that ‘there is not the slightest element to support the existence of a criminal offense and, consequently, to enable the processing of this petition'”, says the minister in the decision.

The petitions pointed to possible practices of prevarication, passive corruption or embezzlement, criminal condescension, violation of functional secrecy, among other possible crimes.
