Asked the Senate Commission investigating the administration of the Brazilian government during the epidemics To the Supreme Court and the Attorney General’s Office this Tuesday President Jair Bolsanaro’s accounts should be disabled on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram Until the new announcement. The situation is similar to what happened in the United States with former President Donald Trump, another denier of the epidemic. The request will be sent to Attorney General Augusto Aras and Supreme Court Judge Alexandre de Moraes, who will interrogate Bolzano in a megacarus over fake news.
The call for a halt comes after the far-right president mentioned it in a live broadcast Misinformation linking the corona virus vaccine to AIDS. The video was later removed from Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. The streaming site decided to suspend Bolsanaro’s channel for a week.
The indictment, delivered by Senator Randolfe Rodrigues, calls for “Precautionary suspension” for access to Bolsanaro’s accounts Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter “Avoid Destroying Sources”. In addition, it is required “Telematic Secret” Bankruptcy Google, the owner of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, provides information about the president’s accounts on his networks, where he has a total of more than 40 million followers.
“It simply came to our notice then The spread of false information and attacks on companies are not limited to Jair Bolsanaro’s personal opinion. As soon as he assumed the leadership of the Republic, he accepted the responsibilities and characteristics of the position he held, so his statements have the nature of official decisions, which strongly affects the people, ”the document approved in the Senate adds.
Bolzano, who is skeptical of remote measures and antigens against the corona virus, noted the misinformation last Thursday. Official UK government reports that “suggest” that fully vaccinated people develop AIDS “much faster than expected”. This information must have been denied by the British authorities.
The text, which was approved this Tuesday, calls on the president to “step back from the national chain.”, Denying the link between the corona virus vaccine and the development of AIDS, under a fine of 50 thousand rice (approximately nine thousand dollars) for each day of non-compliance. “We can no longer tolerate such behavior,” said Senator Rodriguez.
Faced with a delicate situation for the Brazilian president, political scientist Mauricio Santoro sees the demand as unlikely to succeed. “I doubt it. Based on the Trump case, for something like this to happen, we would have to look at something as serious as the Capitol invasion,” Santoro said on Twitter and Facebook. The former U.S. president should be expelled from their networks after the riots.
The president, who excels on social media, is often accused of spreading false news. In August, the Supreme Court decided to prosecute him for crimes such as “defamation” and “incitement to crime.” For reasons related to questioning without proof of the electronic voting system in Brazil.
