RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - On Tuesday, April 28th, President Jair Bolsonaro appointed Detective Inspector Alexandre Ramagem to the command of the Federal Police (PF). The change in the PF's leadership was the trigger for the former Lava Jato judge Sérgio Moro's resignation from the Ministry of Justice last week.
[On Wednesday, April 29th, after this post was published, STF Justice Alexandre de Moraes granted a temporary restraining order against Ramagem taking office. PDT filed the suit alleging a flagrant abuse of the presidential power to appoint, based on Ramagem's close relationship to Bolsonaro's sons.]
