Marco Aurélio denies immediate installation of impeachment of Temer
Minister of the Supreme Court (STF) Marcus Aurelius denied today (25) request for immediate installation of impeachment of Vice President Michel Temer. Despite having decided to open the process, decision announced last month, the minister understood that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Eduardo Cunha, It is not stalling the progress of the case, because of the special committee of the process have not been installed.
Last month, the minister ordered the mayor request to initiate impeachment against Temer, presented by lawyer Mariel Marra Marley. After the decision, Cunha sent an official letter to party leaders requesting the appointment of members of the impeachment committee Temer, but some parties did not indicate the names and the commission was not installed.
Given the impasse, Marra appealed to the minister asking term 24 hours for installation of the college and the application of a fine of R $ 3,3 Cunha million in the event of non-compliance.
In today's decision, Marco Aurelio Cunha acknowledged that is fulfilling his decision, which led to the acceptance of the application, but did not rule out further examination of the case, in case of "procrastinating order" President.
"Formalized the act of constitution of the special committee and sent the letters through which requested, to party leaders, in obedience to the cautionary measure implemented, the appointment of the members and alternate members of the college, descabe host the breach claim, without prejudice to further review, case demonstrated procrastinating intention of the authority identified as constraining ", the minister said.
The lawyer argued that Temer should be included in the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff, or that a new application be opened, understanding that there is evidence that the vice president committed a crime committed.
In the appeal filed in the Supreme, the Chamber holds that Temer can not answer for a crime committed, because he always assumed the Presidency of possibly Republic, in the absence of President Dilma Rousseff.
Chamber of Advocates argue that the vice president can not be held responsible for decrees signed on the provision of additional credits. According to them, Temer just continued the "president's initiatives".
