President Jair Bolsonaro expressed his disapproval Wednesday in the Federal Attorney General (AGU) and said he would appeal against the decision of Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes, who prevented the inauguration of delegate Alexandre Ramagem at the helm Federal Police.
Earlier, the AGU released a public statement in which it said it would not appeal the suspension of possession.
"It is it's duty [AGU] to appeal," said Bolsonaro. "I am in charge, and I want Ramage there," said Bolsonaro, who moments earlier, in a ceremony at the Planalto Palace, had stated that his dream of appointing the delegate to the post of director-general "will soon come true."
At the entrance to the PalÃ¡cio da Alvorada, where he greeted voters after a walk, he said on Wednesday night that there was interference by the Judiciary. He reiterated that he would fulfill his desire to appoint the friend of his children to the position.
"I want Ramage there. It was an interference, right? But we will do everything for Ramage. If not, his time will come, and I will put someone else," he said.
Shortly after Bolsonaro disapproved of the AGU note, JosÃ© Levi, the new head of the agency, reaffirmed that there would be no appeal. "It has already been said that there will be no appeal," he said, at the Planalto Palace. He hinted, however, that he had no information about the president's statements.
