‘There is no political intolerance,’ says defense of Bolsonaro supporter who killed PT treasurer in Paraná



“We are sure, there is no political intolerance. Despite Guaranho having a right-wing positioning, he was not an extremely political person, so political motivation is totally ruled out. […] He was on patrol and this fatality happened, which is a tragedy. But the political question can be completely ruled out,” said lawyer Poliana.

The new defense took over the case on Tuesday (12). Previously, the lawyer Andreza Dolatto Inaccio, who had been appointed during the weekend’s shift to defend Guaranho, presided over the case. On Monday (11) he left the case and informed that he communicated to the 3rd criminal court so that a new defense could be indicated for the case.

According to the defense, what led the federal criminal police officer to shoot, was he felt threatened after the vehicle he was with his wife and son, was hit by land, thrown by the PT.

“He felt threatened by having been thrown a lot of stone, sorry, a lot of earth, against him, with his wife and children inside the car,” said Poliana.

Attorney Cleverson Ortega said, however, that it is still “premature” to formulate a line of defense because “the images are so clear.” He also stated that Guaranho was described by family members as a “calm” person.

“Totally premature to maintain a line of defense, the images are quite clear, but only Guaranho will be able to clarify what actually happened. […] The family is very shaken, the wife, but at first they informed me that he would be a calm person, who has no history of aggression, a totally balanced person,” said the lawyer.

The defense ended by informing that it will soon comment on the facts after finding out about the entire investigation.
