Nikolas will pay R$ 30,000 to Lula for misinformation
By six votes to one, the plenary of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) denied, this Tuesday (28), an appeal filed by the defense of federal deputy Nikolas Ferreira (PL-MG) and maintained the application of a fine in the amount of BRL 30,000 for publishing disinformation against then-candidate Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) during the 2022 election race.
At the time, the president of the TSE, Minister Alexandre de Moraes, had determined the fine and exclusion of false content. “The disclosure of a fact that is known to be untrue, with serious decontextualization and the apparent purpose of associating the candidate with embezzlement of funds or statements about his disregard for education in the country, seems sufficient to configure negative electoral propaganda, in line with the jurisprudence of this court” , said Moraes.
Five days before the second round, on October 25, Nikolas Ferreira stated that Lula had diverted R$242.2 billion from public health. “Is that what you heard, what would you do with that money? How many people would you help? So it is. That was the value that the PT diverted from Brazilian health only in their first three governments”, he said in a publication on his social networks. “I ask, what would the pandemic (of Covid-19) be like if Brazil had invested all that of hospitals? How many lives could have been saved?”
This Tuesday, Moraes added that Justice “has the duty to make its decisions really necessary instruments to guarantee our constitutional obligation to safeguard free and legitimate elections. Therefore, I stand by the decision.”

“What we have to judge are the facts and also the antecedents. The same president who is practicing this has very strong evidence of embezzlement. He is a president who practiced cracking, his children practiced cracking and used the Federal Police to prevent the progress of investigations. ”
The columnist of UOL Thaís Oyama says that Boolsonaro reacted with a “cascade of profanity” when he learned that he will not be able to disembark through the main door or gather a crowd of supporters at the Brasília airport when he arrives in Brazil, this morning on Thursday (30).
