Interim President of the Chamber of Deputies, Waldir Maranhão (PP-MA), annulled on Friday(8) the creation of a Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry (CPI) to investigate alleged irregularities in the use of public money by the National Union of Students (A).

The amount was transferred to the UNE as compensation for its headquarters, at Praia do Flamengo, in Rio de Janeiro, have been burned by the military dictatorship in 1964 and the land had been handed over to third parties.

To cancel the application, Waldir Maranhão attended a point of order made by Mr Orlando Silva (PCdoB-SP) and Erika Kokay (PT-DF) who argued that there is no certain fact to justify the creation of a CPI. "Indeed, the fate that deprived people give the assets or resources they receive from the Government the title and compensation for damages can not be subject of inquiry by this same Government, so that the public interest does not reveal this ", said the interim president in decision.

Yesterday (7), President of the Supreme Court (STF), Ricardo Lewandowski, He had denied the request of a PSDB parliamentary group, PTB and PSC to ensure the installation of the CPI. in the decision, the minister considered that the issue should be resolved politically by the House.
