Police officer Jorge Guaranho will be submitted to a popular jury for the indictment of the death of PT treasurer and municipal guard Marcelo Arruda. The decision is by Judge Gustavo Germano Arguello, issued this Thursday (1st), after a request from the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

The request for revocation of prison made by Guaranho’s defense was also denied. The judge stated that he must remain in custody to “guarantee public order” and due to the seriousness of the alleged crime committed.

According to the Public Ministry, the crime was politically motivated, with “antagonistic party-political preferences”.

The Prosecution claims that Guaranho shot Arruda when he was already on the ground, saying “a petista will die everything [sic]”.The complaint goes in the opposite direction to the investigation by the Civil Police of Paraná, which ruled out, last Friday (15), that there was political motivation.

Arruda’s lawyers, in turn, stated that the investigations would show that the case happened because of political divergence.
