In a letter sent on Monday (17), to the Supreme Court (STF), Judge Sergio Moro said the lobbyist Julio Camargo omitted the President of the Chamber name, Eduardo Cunha (PMDB-RJ), the first testimony of his plea bargaining on corruption at Petrobras. no document, Moro explains that approved the whistleblower of the collaboration agreement because it had no knowledge of the case against Cunha, which can only be prosecuted and judged by the Supreme.

The Moro response was sent in a claim proposed by the defense lobbyist Fernando Soares, known as Fernando Baiano, the Supreme Court. Not appeal, lawyers Baiano try to void the accusation of Camargo claiming that at first he did not report the participation of parliamentarians in the corruption scheme at Petrobras and, after, in testimony given in July, He said Cunha required 5 millions of dollars in kickbacks on contracts of state-of drillships.

in the letter, Live recognizes that Camargo “omitted” information, but points out that there is no saying that the denunciation of agreement could not have been approved. “You can not, still, state that the collaboration agreement signed by Julio Camargo could not have been approved by this court in October 2014, why, in 16/07/2015, He revealed the fact that there was then omitted, that part of the kickbacks in the contracts of ships probes was designed to said Congressman”, the judge wrote. “evidently, time rules act (time governs the act), not having the judgment in October 2014 any knowledge about the fact admitted by Julio Camargo only in July 2015”, completed Moro.

privileged forum
The judge also reiterated what had already pointed to respond to the complaint Cunha STF saying “mere mention” the Speaker of the House in Camargo's testimony does not make the Member in “accused or investigated”. “The privileged forum does not make the nameless holder in the lower courts”, wrote. Cunha claims that Live “usurped” the competence of the Supreme Court to investigate deputies, which have special jurisdiction to the Court.

The different versions presented by Camargo in the statements to the federal courts are used to support claims for annulment of the whistleblower lobbyist made by defendants in the actions in Paraná and also the defense of Cunha. The lawyers of the mayor also ask for the suspension of proceedings, because they understand that it is up to the Supreme chair the inquiry, the citation because the secretarial. there has been no Supreme Court decision.
