Niterói councilor Benny Briolly (PSOL-RJ) accuses state deputy Rodrigo Amorim (PTB-RJ) of sending an email with death threats.
According to the congresswoman, the message, dated May 25 with the official email sender of the deputy of the Legislative Assembly of the State of Rio de Janeiro (Alerj), would have been sent to the email address that Benny usually uses. to serve the population.
In the text, according to the parliamentarian, Amorim would have also used profanity, insulted the councilor in the male gender and written racist terms.
Briolly informed, this Friday (23), that he intends to register the case at the Police Station for Racial Crimes and Intolerance Crimes (Decradi). At the end of the email, Rodrigo Amorim would have made death threats against her if she did not withdraw the lawsuit filed against him for racist and transphobic offenses. These offenses took place during a session at Alerj in May and were recorded.
Also according to Benny, the content of the email quotes former councilor Marielle Franco, who died in 2018, and President Jair Bolsonaro (PL). Benny alleges that the congressman would have referred to Marielle in an offensive way, admitting that he broke the plaque with the councilor’s name and that, as he was a political ally of the president, he would not have been punished for his actions.
In a note to CNN sent by Rodrigo Amorim’s press office, the deputy referred to the councilor as a male, denied the authorship of the e-mail, informed that he had registered the case at the Computer Crimes Police Station (DRCI) and that he will ask for an expertise to verify if the message may have used the Alerj system.
“The totally inhospitable message that councilor Benio de Niterói would have received from deputy Rodrigo Amorim is not authored by the parliamentarian. The deputy registered at the Computer Crimes Police Station (DRCI) and will ask for an expertise to verify if the message may have come from Alerj. If the councilor maintains that the message came from the deputy, he will take the legal measures provided for by law for Fake News with an electoral purpose.
