By 48 votes to 12, the Commission of Constitution and Justice (CCJ) the House rejected Deputy Eduardo Cunha feature (PMDB-RJ), trying to slow down the process for breaking parliamentary decorum. Like this, the case may go to vote in plenary, which will decide whether or not overturns the mandate of the parliamentary. But this should only occur in August, after the end of the House recessed white. Before the vote on the CCJ, Cunha had already announced that, If defeated, resort to Justice.

Before heading to the plenary the CCJ has yet to vote on a new report. However, the new text will only endorse the vote rejecting the Cunha feature. At the sitting of Thursday, He was also elected a new rapporteur, Mr Max Son (PSDB- IS).

To give flexibility to the case, Max Filho welcomed the previous report on the subject of Mr José Carlos Alleluia (DEM-BA), which contains the basic lines of the winning vote.

Initially, in symbolic vote, the CCJ dismissed the report by Mr Ronaldo Fonseca (PROS-DF), determined that re-analysis of the case by the Ethics Committee of the House, as desired Cunha. But the House of former President allies called for roll call vote, where it is registered as each member voted. Minutes later, out the result, sacramentando Cunha defeat.

Shortly before the report analysis, Cunha again accused his opponents of acting out of revenge, omitting in cases of other parliamentary – Members are, senators are – with many court cases.

In his defense, Cunha returned to the attack the case against him, again he accused the president of the Board of Ethics, José Carlos Araújo (PR-BA), to seek the media spotlight and denied that he made any threats to colleagues of the House.

- I did not threat to parliamentarians to mention that 117 Members have the investigation and prosecution, some with more than one. He said that by the opening of the investigation or prosecution to be impeached parliamentary. It is a precedent that any indictment count any parliamentary mandate is precedent for opening cassation. I did not threaten anyone. I have no reason for that - said Cunha.
