He was arrested in Bolivia after spending two years on the run.

Souza had escaped from the penitentiary system on April 22, 2022 and was responsible for several crimes, such as drug trafficking, bank robbery, robbery, possession of a restricted weapon and forgery of documents.

A CNN last November, Federal Police (PF) delegate Valdecy Urquiza, director of international cooperation and vice-president of Interpol in the Americas, explained how the wanted list works.

“Interpol has 19 databases and some of them have a color nomenclature. The red diffuser, the best known, is a database where countries ask the organization for the names of people who are wanted for committing a crime in their countries”.

According to delegate Valdecy Urquiza, it is necessary to have an arrest order issued by the judge in that country and once this data has been sent to the organization, it is included in the database.

On Thursday (13), the Federal Police Superintendency in the Federal District requested the inclusion of the name of Eurípedes Gomes Júnior, president of Solidariedade, in Interpol’s Red Diffusion.

The request was sent to the Interpol central office, in Lyon, France, which began the analysis process. The request is being analyzed against the politician, who is named by the PF as leader of a criminal organization that diverted R$36 million from the electoral fund for personal trips, purchase of helicopters and houses.
