Complaint against Bolsonaro for the genocide of the indigenous population

Complaint against Bolsonaro for the genocide of the indigenous population

Senator Renan Caleros, Rapporteur of the Final Report of the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry (CPI), said today that Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro will be indicted for the “indigenous genocide” during the coronavirus pandemic.

This legislature is assessing the health crisis that has killed 602,000 people and more than 21.5 million infected in the South American country.

The president will be found guilty of “impostor, evasiveness, genocide, indigenous crimes against humanity, the crime of responsibility and the crime of negligent homicide, that is, the president did not fulfill his legal duty to prevent the deaths of thousands of Brazilians,” Calheiros is listed.

Considered one of the most influential senators of the International Criminal Court (CPI), Caleros commented that his proposals on complaints would be consulted with other members of the group, as there is significant “consensus” on most issues.

Caleros commented that this weekend he will meet with other members of the International Criminal Court to finalize the document that will be formally presented next week.

The Joints of the Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (Apib) and the Council of Indigenous Missions (Cimi), an entity associated with the Catholic Church, denounced the lack of measures to alleviate the coronavirus crisis in indigenous communities.

In early August, Apib formally charged Bolsonaro with “genocide and crimes against humanity” before the International Criminal Court based in The Hague, Netherlands.

Last Tuesday, the Austrian NGO All Rise accused the far-right ruler of “genocide” before the International Criminal Court with a speech titled “Planet Against Bolsonaro”.

Calliros announced last month that the Senate’s International Criminal Court does not rule out joining indictments before the ICC.

The senator noted Friday that the president organized public events with thousands of people in the midst of the pandemic, which could have facilitated transmission as well as demonstrating against vaccination in favor of “early treatment” based on unsuitable drugs. Corona virus such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.

The president announced this week that he will never be vaccinated because he has the antibodies to fight the coronavirus thanks to the fact that he fell ill in July last year when he took hydroxychloroquine as part of an “early treatment”.

Last September, Bolsonaro defended “early treatment” during his address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

During his time in the United States, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized Bolsonaro for not receiving a vaccination because he was denied entry to restaurants that require a certificate of immunization.

Senator Caleros considers that “evidence” of Bolsonaro’s responsibility for the “mismanagement” of the epidemic is in the public domain in Brazil and abroad.

In May 2020, as indicators of deaths and injuries began to grow, Bolsonaro fired the then health minister, Doctor Luis Henrique Mandetta, and months later appointed General Eduardo Pazuelo, someone who had no training in public health issues.

Today, Renan Caleros announced that “among the personalities to be indicted for various crimes is General Pazuelo.”

A member of parliament for the conservative Brazilian Democratic Movement said the military man would be charged with “irregular use of public resources, false communications, genocide of indigenous people, and crimes against humanity”.

“When General Pazuelo took office, he led more than 60 soldiers into the ministry without any public health training in the midst of the pandemic,” Caleros said.

The legislator expected that Colonel Elsio Franco, who was Pazuello’s right-hand man in the health portfolio, would also be indicted, having served as executive secretary.
