Let’s go inside Petrobras

President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) said that his allies should ask for the opening of a new CPI (parliamentary commission of inquiry) related to Petrobras next Monday (20) in the Chamber of Deputies.

“I spoke yesterday with the leader of the Chamber for us to open a CPI on Monday. We are going to go inside Petrobras”, he said. “It is unacceptable, with a global crisis, for Petrobras to brag about the profits it has”, he added.

The statements were given by the president during the Restoration Ministry’s Apostolic Anointing Act. The event took place in Manaus (AM), in the early afternoon of this Saturday.

Petrobras announced readjustments

On Twitter, the president criticized the measure. “The Federal Government as a shareholder is against any readjustment in fuels, not only because of Petrobras’ exaggerated profit in the midst of the global crisis, but also because of the public interest provided for in the State-Owned Companies Law”, he said.
