History of assessments to Bolsonaro
The first offense took place on June 12, at a demonstration in the capital. The appeal presented to the notice was dismissed, resulting in a fine, whose appeal is under analysis. On June 25, Bolsonaro committed his first recidivism and was booked at an event in Sorocaba. The appeal was also dismissed, with the imposition of a fine, which is also under analysis.
On these two occasions, sanctions were applied for failure to comply with the law that determines the use of masks in public places to prevent Covid-19, in breach of state law. There has already been a request for appeal and rejection for the first two, which resulted in fines of R$ 552.71 each.
The third recidivism occurred on July 31, in Presidente Prudente. In this case, you can be fined up to R$ 290.9 thousand for the encouragement and involvement in actions that pose a risk to public health according to the state Sanitary Code (law 10,083 of 1998). In this case, the term for appealing the notice of infraction is in effect.
The other three assessments occurred during the president’s visit to three cities in the Vale do Ribeira. The position in these cases violated Federal Law No. 14,019 of 2020, which requires the use of masks, and subject it to the penalties provided for in Law No. 6,437 of 1977, which provides for fines that can reach R$4.5 million. All are in the appeal stage.
Once the resources for the fines have been exhausted, the president must pay the respective amounts or he may have his name included in the active debt of the State and in Serasa.
