Brazil requests information on 143 8/1 fugitives from Argentina

Brazil requested this Friday (7) information on 143 people convicted of the attacks on January 8, 2023 against the headquarters of the Three Powers who remain at large.

The request was delivered by the Brazilian embassy in Buenos Aires, requesting information on whether the 143 people are in Argentine territory.

This is the first formal request made by the Brazilian government to Argentina for information on fugitives. The Brazilian Federal Police confirmed to the CNN that at least 48 wanted people are in the neighboring country.

The list with all the names was delivered so that possible fugitives, in addition to the 48 confirmed by Brazilian authorities, can also be found.

The note, which reproduces a letter from the Federal Supreme Court (STF) with the 143 names, was delivered to the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the Brazilian ambassador to the country, Julio Bitelli.

Argentina knows of fugitives in the country

The Argentine government is aware of the presence in the country of Brazilians convicted or investigated for attacks on the headquarters of the Three Powers, and said that if there is a request for extradition, it will analyze the cases.

The information was transmitted to CNN by direct assistants to President Javier Milei.

For now, no extradition request has been made to Argentina, but the Federal Police (PF) will suggest to the Federal Supreme Court (STF) that it begin the extradition process for the fugitives.

There are doubts, however, about how the Casa Rosada would behave in the face of a request for the extradition of Brazilians who fled to Argentina, since the defenses of those investigated and convicted claim that there is political persecution in the country and that these people are victims of a process without legal guarantees.
