The Minister of Justice, Sergio Moro, decided to politicize the end of the military police riot in CearÃ¡, which started on Tuesday (18) and ended on Sunday night (1st).
On social media, the government minister said that "common sense prevailed," "without radicalism," even after 241 people were murdered in the state during nine days of the riot.
"The federal government was present, from the beginning, and did everything possible within the legal limits and respect for the state's autonomy. Common sense prevailed, without radicalism," said the former federal judge.
Moro also stressed that the local crisis in public security "was only resolved by the action of the federal government" and said that it was resolved "despite Gomes," sharing a comment by ex-presidential candidate Ciro Gomes (PDT-CE).
"Exploring the episode politically, offending police officers, or physically attacking them only got in the way. Despite Gomes, the crisis was resolved," said the minister.
During the riot, the former governor of CearÃ¡ Cid Gomes (PDT), Ciro's brother, was hit by two shots when he tried to enter with a backhoe into a battalion taken by riot police in Sobral (CE).
