Association of Federal Judges criticizes Fiesp in Daslu case


By Gilse Guedes, Agência Estado
Brasília - In a note, the president of the Association of Federal Judges of Brazil (Ajufe), Jorge Antonio Maurique, condemned the Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo (Fiesp) for criticizing the recent operations of the Federal Police, among which resulted in the arrest of Daslu store owner Eliana Tranchesi. According to Maurique, Fiesp's position is “a remnant of the period when we lived with a distinction between nobles and servants, with nobles being above the law”.

Without mentioning Fiesp explicitly, but referring to the “manifestation of a well-known business entity”, the note from the president of Ajufe states that the PF “has been acting, in these and other operations that investigate evasion and money laundering, always with fundamentals, with elements of probability of the existence of the crime, as the respected jurist Dalmo Dallari highlighted ”.

Maurique also says, in the note, that it would be irresponsible for the authorities involved in the operation not to take into account that there was a very high risk of the evidence of the alleged crimes being eliminated, hence the need for search warrants and arrests.

"Ajufe takes advantage of the episode to defend one of the most expensive values ​​of democracy: that Justice is for everyone and not just for the most affluent in society," says the entity's note.
