Superior Court Justice Revokes House Arrest and Decides to Send Queiroz Back to Jail

In early July, the couple had benefited from the conversion of the preventive home arrest order, determined on duty during the judicial recess by the court's president, João Otávio de Noronha - by whom Jair Bolsonaro said, in April, having a "love at first sight".

Fischer returned to dispatch lawsuits this week after health problems he faced at the end of the July vacation. Now the attention turns to the Superior Federal Court, where lawyers filed a request for the freedom of Queiroz and Márcia Aguiar.

The case is with Justice Gilmar Mendes, who ordered the sending of letters on the same day to the STJ and to the first and second courts of Rio de Janeiro, to provide information on the case.
