RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Federal Deputy Daniel Silveira (PSL - RJ) was arrested on Tuesday night, February 16th, by order of STF Justice Alexandre de Moraes, as part of an investigation into verbal attacks on the Supreme Court's justices and fake news.
The denunciation is a formal indictment brought by the Court that, if accepted, implicates the accused and leads to criminal prosecution. As the PSL deputy enjoys privileged jurisdiction, it is up to the Supreme Court to analyze the case. Or in other words: Silveira's case gets scrutinized by those whom he critizised.
