Bolsonaro’s former minister to testify about illegal espionage in Brazil

At that time, the ABIN is under the GSI, and the testimony, scheduled to take place at the headquarters of the Federal Police (PF), in Brasilia, will ask if Heleno was aware of the alleged illegal actions of the agency’s former director, Alexandre Ramagem.

PF sources confirmed that there are still-secret clues that point to the possibility that the senior official knew and encouraged the espionage operations attributed to Ramagem.

This investigation is a continuation of the maneuver carried out on Thursday, when Ramagem was the subject of the search.

On that occasion, six cell phones and two notebooks, including one belonging to ABIN, were seized.

The orders were issued by the minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), Alexandre de Moraes.

That day, De Moraes sent 21 search warrants to Brasilia (18), Minas Gerais (two), and Rio de Janeiro (one).

On the same day, the agents went to Ramagem’s office in Ubos Balay Balauranan and other addresses to implement the determination.

In addition to the deputy, the councilor of Rio Carlos Bolsonaro, the son of the former president, is also the subject of searches on January 29 within the framework of the operation called approximate surveillance.

During the search, 10 mobile phones, three laptops, external hard drives, and weapons were seized from the house of a soldier connected to ABIN.

According to the investigation, Ramagem would have used the agency to conduct illegal espionage for the benefit of the Bolsonaro family.

Among the targets are authorities such as the former president of the Chamber of Deputies, Rodrigo Maia, and the current head of the National Congress, Rodrigo Pacheco, who announced their intention to request from the STF the list of parliamentarians monitored by ABIN.

A prosecutor from the Rio Public Ministry investigating militias was also targeted, including Adriano da Nóbrega, who was honored by Flávio Bolsonaro, son of the former governor, in addition to the deaths of councilor Marielle Franco and her driver Anderson Gomes.
