Febraban demands ‘firm reaction’ from the state against coup plotters


Febraban (Brazilian Federation of Banks) released a note this Sunday (8) in repudiation of acts of vandalism carried out by coup leaders today in the federal capital, at Praça dos Três Poderes.

“With more than half a century of existence, Febraban, a member of the country’s institutions, vehemently repudiates attacks on national public property and violence against institutions that represent the Democratic State of Law”, informed the association in a note, signed by the president of the institution, Isaac Sidney.

The association brings together 120 financial institutions, including the largest private and public banks in the country.

“The scenes of disorder and riots perpetrated this Sunday afternoon (January 8) in Brasília cause deep institutional perplexity, which demand a firm reaction from the State”, says the text.

The CNC (National Confederation of Trade in Goods, Services and Tourism) expressed, in a note, “its deepest repudiation of anti-democratic acts and reaffirms its commitment to the values ​​of the Democratic State of Law”.

The confederation says it trusts “in the investigation and punishment of those responsible for the crimes committed against the decision manifested in the ballot boxes by Brazilian society.”

Paulo Solmucci Jr., president of Abrasel (Brazilian Association of Bars and Restaurants), informed Folha that he “vehemently” repudiates the acts.

“We deeply regret that extremists expose the country to such an absurd situation that compromises the country’s image as a democracy,” he said in a statement.
