The defense of national deputy Flordelis dos Santos de Souza advised Daily Reuters, last Wednesday (9), which she’ll file an appeal from the annulment of their parliamentary mandate. By 16 votes to one, the members of the Ethics Council of the Chamber decided to cancel the support of the national deputy.
The parliamentarian is enticed by the Public Ministry of Rio de Janeiro (MP-RJ) of being the mastermind of the murder of her husband, Pastor Anderson do Carmo, in June 2019.
Following the publication of this petition for impeachment from the Official Gazette of the Chamber of Deputies, the congressman’s attorneys will have around five working days to submit the appeal. The prediction is the decision of the Ethics Council is printed in the DO before this Friday (10).
In the event the appeal is refused, the procedure goes into the plenary of this Chamber, in which the most deputies — 257 of those 513 parliamentarians — determines the reduction or upkeep of the mandate. There’s still no date for voting at the plenary.
The procedure goes into the plenary after the deputies of the Chamber approve the report by deputy Alexandre Leite (DEM-SP), introduced last week, that requested for the deputy’s impeachment.
“What we find is that this edition of a generous, affectionate, spiritual, altruistic individual [of Flordelis], has been introduced to give solution to some twisted, reckless, and manipulative character. And, so, I vote to the deputy’s mandate to be missing, believing the represented as a method of life likely towards behavior practices which aren’t consistent with what’s due to a representative of those people”, states an excerpt in the deputy’s vote Alexandre Leite.
Deputy Flordelis dos Santos de Souza is a suspect in court, accused with the MP-RJ of having arranged the murder of her husband, Pastor Anderson do Carmo, in June 2019.
The parliamentarian is accountable for triple capable homicide (wicked motive, usage of a barbarous means and a source which made it impossible to shield the victim), attempted murder, use of false documents, along and armed criminal institutions.
Thus far, Flordelis hasn’t yet been detained due to parliamentary immunity. The deputy, however, is tracked through an electronic ankle bracelet.
