RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Yesterday, a light aircraft carrying Supreme Federal Court (STF) Justice Zavascki crashed into the bay in front of Angra dos Reis, killing all four people on board.
The conspiracy theorists are out in force, claiming that the “accident” (to use President Temer’s word describing the slaughter of 56 prisoners in Manaus) was no accident, but rather a murder, designed to hide the evidence in the Lava-Jato case and prevent the guilty from being brought to justice.
The Curmudgeon is not given to conspiracy theories, but there are certainly past precedents . . .
