Urgent: PGR denounces Roberto Jefferson for incitement to crime and homophobia


The PGR has just denounced former federal deputy Roberto Jefferson, pre-trial detained for two weeks by determination of Alexandre de Moraes.

In the document, the assistant attorney Lindôra Araújo cites the crimes of incitement to crime, incitement to insubordination against institutions and homophobia.

The complaint was filed on August 25th. Lindôra mentions episodes in which Jefferson encourages the population to invade Congress and attack institutions. The assistant attorney also cites the National Security Law.

The PGR asked that the STF minister Alexandre de Moraes assess the possibility of house arrest. The former deputy’s defense alleges that he has serious disease problems and is facing cancer treatment.
