The Federal Highway Police (PRF) appointed this Monday (13) new superintendents in 21 states and the Federal District. The divisions had been without leadership since January 19, when the then superintendents were dismissed.
The nominations are signed by Ricardo Cappelli, executive secretary of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.
A CNN found that the delay in nominations, almost two months, was due to checking the profiles and CVs of the nominees. In the federal government, the list was appreciated by both the Ministry of Justice and the Civil House.
During the period, the positions were taken over on an interim basis by substitute superintendents.
During his inauguration as the new director general of the PRF, in February, Fernando Oliveira defended that the corporation should move away from “political flags”.
The former boss, Silvinei Vasques, fell amid suspicions that the corporation was slow to act to prevent the occupation of federal highways by supporters of Jair Bolsonaro who closed roads to protest the election result.
Vasques also began to be investigated in a PRF process due to barriers that the corporation set up on highways in the second round to approach buses with voters in the Northeast.
