Councilor Carlos Bolsonaro (Republicanos-RJ) and his brother, Deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP)

The report of CPI from Pandemic, in charge of senator Renan Calheiros (MDB-AL), continues to grow. In addition to the names of 37 people investigated (see the list below), released last week, a specific chapter on the dissemination of false news, designed to induce the population to adopt a denial stance, will bring the councilor Carlos Bolsonaro (Republicans-RJ) and the deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP) as involved in a fake news production machine. The Pocketnarian Deputies Carla Zambelli (PSL-SP) e Kicis Beer (PSL-DF) will also be cited for dissemination of disinformation. The CPI team will include in the report a list of fake news attributed to each of the names.

The senators are still discussing in what condition these characters will appear in the final text, but it is likely that they will be indicted under suspicion of having committed, at least, the crime of non-compliance with sanitary measures. The forecast is for the report to be voted on by the commission members on the 20th. Renan has been saying that the text will be precise and objective in the imputation of crimes and in the presentation of evidence. The chapter on misinformation in the pandemic is based on testimonials and posts on social media.

The most recent name included in the list of investigated was the president of the CFM (Federal Council of Medicine), Mauro Luiz de Britto Ribeiro, which was not heard by the senators. The CPI sees in an opinion of the entity, from April 2020, an incentive for doctors to prescribe chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to people contaminated by Covid-19. These drugs have no proven efficacy for the treatment of the disease, but Ribeiro says that it is necessary to respect the autonomy of doctors to treat their patients as they see fit.
