Former Brazilian Vice President Hamilton Murao on Tuesday criticized the treatment of radical demonstrators who on Sunday invaded and desecrated the tri-power headquarters in Brasilia.
“The indiscriminate detention of more than 1,200 people currently held in dangerous conditions in federal police facilities in Brasilia, shows that the new government, in keeping with its Marxist-Leninist roots, is acting amateurishly, inhumanely and illegally.”, condemned the vice-president of the government, Jair Bolsonaro, who left his post on the last day of 2022.
“Brazil and the people who have been detained expect swift action from our acting parliamentarians and from real human rights organizations,” the senator-elect added on Twitter.

The Ministry of Human Rights has already reacted, saying that it is in line with the position taken by Brazilian President Lula da Silva “and the heads of other powers in the sense of giving force to the coup d’état – and the futile attempt to abolish the Democratic Rule of Law – the most severe regime under the provisions of the Law and Federal Constitution”.
As history has shown, fraudsters are invariably violators of human rights and detractors of citizenship. Therefore, the real protection of human rights requires the rejection of the coup d’état and the violence encouraged by the anti-democratic groups led by fascism,” he specified.
Supporters of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro raided and vandalized the headquarters of the Federal Supreme Court, Congress and the Planalto Palace in Brasilia on Sunday, forcing police to intervene to restore order and drawing condemnation from the international community.
The military police succeeded in regaining control of the headquarters of the three powers in an operation that resulted in the detention of about 1,500 people.
