Other side

For G1 Parana, the defense of Beto Riccia sent a note:

"1 – The facts that led to the former governor's arrest are ancient. All due clarifications have been duly provided by him without leaving any doubt as to the regularity of all the acts practiced in the exercise of his functions.

2 – More than that. These facts have already been used before in the ruling on the safeguards issued against the former governor. It should be noted that the Federal Supreme Court, in adopting those measures, acknowledges the manifest illegality of the arrest warrant issued.

3 – The arrest demanded by the federal prosecutor's office is challenging the decision of the Federal Supreme Court with the obvious purpose of disregarding the Supreme Court's rulings on this matter.

4 – In addition, the request is based on the findings of MFA, supported exclusively by false and untrue data provided in the award of co-operation of recognized criminals.

5 – In summary, the arrest is based on facts that have been completely rehearsed, without any evidence, and on which the Federal Court has already ruled in the sense that they do not justify the arrest warrant.

6 – The defense believes that the judiciary will return the arrest warrant, which does not meet any of the prerequisites required by the law".

Mostly, Gazeta to Povo awaits the return of Dirceu Pupo Ferreira's lawyer.
