The Civil Police of Rio de Janeiro investigates the graffiti in the subsection of the Regional Electoral Court of Rio de Janeiro (TRE-RJ) and the Order of Lawyers of Brazil (OAB-RJ) in Nova Friburgo, Serrana Region of the State, in the early hours of this Friday -Friday (25).
The writings on the wall are an apology for the Military Dictatorship. Images taken by CNN show the graffiti on public establishments in the municipality of Rio de Janeiro.
Among the words are “Lixo” and “AI-5”, an Institutional Act published in 1968, which determined the closure of the National Congress and removed the right to Habeas Corpus.
According to the Civil Police, agents from the 151st DP (Nova Friburgo) are taking steps in search of security camera footage, “in order to identify the author of the crime”.
The OAB-RJ, through the president of the institution, Luciano Bandeira, filed a complaint at the police station. In a note, he repudiated the graffiti that allude to the Military Dictatorship.
While vehemently repudiating such graffiti, an expression of political childishness and criminal disposition, this Order of Lawyers of Brazil communicates that it is adopting all appropriate measures to investigate and punish those responsible, or group of those responsible, for this behavior, in the certainty that democracy will always prevail”, highlighted Luciano Bandeira.
THE CNN contacted TRE-RJ, which has not yet commented on the graffiti on the institution’s headquarters.
