The Minister of Justice and Public Security, Flávio Dino, showed good humor to refute a lie propagated by Bolsonarist federal deputy André Fernandes (PL-CE) in a hearing at the Constitution and Justice Commission of the Chamber of Deputies this Tuesday (28). “I’m going to tell my students as an anecdote, as a joke,” said Dino, who is a law professor, when refuting a false accusation by Fernandes.
Dino’s speech, which caused laughter in many of those present at the audience, was in response to the statement, made by the Bolsonarist deputy, that the minister would respond to hundreds of lawsuits (277, to be precise). The source of the alleged information? The website jusbrasil.
What Fernandes doesn’t know, or pretended not to know, is that the mere mention of any citizen’s name on the website actually shows documents linked to courts across the country. However, this does not mean that the people cited are necessarily those who are responding to lawsuits.
“O jusbrasil, deputy, when they put the name (of a person), the name of the person responding to the process does not appear. The name of the person who asked for the right of reply in court appears, the name of the person who was required in a request for an answer appears, the name of the person who registered the candidacy appears, the name of the person who rendered accounts to the Electoral Justice appears, the name of the person who was a witness in a lawsuit”, listed Dino.

Just type in someone’s name to check whether or not they are involved in any type of legal proceedings, in various capacities.
“At this point, congressman, to say, based on the jusbrasil, which I respond to 277 processes, is more or less part of the same mental continent of those who think the Earth is flat”, continued the minister, receiving applause. “Looking into your eyes, I see that you know that the Earth is round. Just as you know the Earth is round, never again repeat that lie, that lie. fake news of the 277 processes”.
Dino’s hearing at the CCJ represents the first visit by a member of the first echelon of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s (PT) third term in the federal government to Congress to provide clarification. He was invited to speak about the Bolsonarist riot at Praça dos Três Poderes on January 8.
