Former Rio Civil Police chief is arrested in MP operation

Former Rio de Janeiro Civil Police Secretary Allan Turnowski was arrested this Friday morning (9) at his home in Barra da Tijuca, west of the state capital. The information was confirmed by the Public Ministry of Rio. He is suspected of involvement with the animal game and criminal organization.

Turnowski left his position at the Civil Police to run for federal deputy for the PL, the same party as Governor Cláudio Castro and President Jair Bolsonaro. On his social networks, the delegate published images alongside Bolsonaro and Castro on the holiday of September 7, in Copacabana. He also spoke in a sound car.

Between 2010 and 2011, Turnowski headed the Civil Police of Rio, under Sérgio Cabral, but left the position during a Federal Police investigation into an alleged leak of an operation.

According to the Public Ministry, also delegate Antônio Ricardo, former director of the Homicide Police Station and candidate for state deputy, is the subject of a search and seizure warrant.

The operation is an offshoot of an investigation into irregularities in the police, which culminated in the arrest of police chief Maurício Demétrio last year.
