Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro must be examined for a possible national court case. The disputed president is being harshly criticized for the rise of coronary infection in the country, and he is now losing political support.
Brazil now has over 4600 confirmed coronary deaths, and is about to pass China. There are major problems with testing and hospital capacity, and CNBC and several other media have designated Brazil as a "hotspot" for coronary infection in South America.
Benedicte Bull, a Latin America expert and professor of political science at the University of Oslo, says the proportional death tolls themselves are not particularly high in Brazil, but that there is considerable uncertainty in the statistics, including in Brazil.
- What has created rage in Brazil is that President Bolsonaro does not take the coronation center seriously. People are watching what is happening, especially in southern Europe, and this makes people scared, says Bull.
Bosonaro himself refers to the coronary smith as a "light flu," and he demonstratively breaks the demands of social distancing. The president, often referred to as "the Trumps of the tropics," has also publicly backed protesters demanding relief in the stringent anti-pollution measures and reopening the economy.
Political and economic trouble
In the midst of the corona crisis, popular and contentious Justice Minister Sergio Moro also had enough, and just before the weekend he resigned. Fun was known to be hard at the pin as a federal judge in what is often referred to as the world's largest corruption case, "Operation Car Wash," which revealed widespread abuse and abuse of power in Brazil, among politicians, government officials and business leaders.
Bolsonaro managed to persuade Moro to become Minister of Justice when he took over as president at the turn of the year last year. But after just over a year, Moro had enough and made allegations of abuse of power and illegal interference with the Bolsonaro police work to achieve his own political gain.
Bull explains that Bosonaro has lost a lot of support from the military, and that dealing with the corona crisis has led to constant confrontations between the president and powerful state governors and mayors.
The corona crisis means that it is also affecting business, and the low oil price is hitting Brazilian government finances very hard. Brazil is South America's largest oil producer.
The Supreme Court has, in connection with Moro's departure, opened for the investigation of Bolsonaro, and it may soon go to a court case to remove the president.
- It is not entirely unexpected that it goes against national law. The coalition of the military and economic elite supporting Bolsonaro was all weakened before the corona, nor does it help that Moro has now resigned, says Bull.
She says court cases are fairly common in Brazil and, unlike in the United States, cause presidents to be thrown.
The people believe Bolsonaro is lying
But the same survey shows that only 20 percent of those surveyed believe Bolsonaro is true, while 52 percent believe Moro's version of what has happened.
Bolsonaro's three politically active sons are also disputed in Brazil, throwing the blame on the president. One son, Eduardo, is now under investigation for spreading fake news and so-called "trolling" on the web and social media.
- Maybe this is a perfect storm against Bolsonaro, says Benedicte Bull.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have been intentionally watered down over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati / Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way will we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
