Differences remained between the members of the committee on the content of the report.

Sine die. The disclosure of a parliamentary committee report incriminating Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for his policies deemed irresponsible during the coronavirus pandemic, scheduled for Tuesday, has been postponed without a new date having been given, the Senate announced on Sunday.

On the website of the upper house, the mention “postponed” was inscribed in red on the agenda of the parliamentary committee on October 19, the date on which the rapporteur, Renan Calheiros, was supposed to read his report of more than 1,000 pages.

“This decision (of postponement) was taken by the president (of the commission), Omar Aziz. I agree with him, we will have more time to debate,” said the latter in a statement to the site of information G1.

New hearings

According to the Brazilian press, differences remained between the members of the committee on the content of the report, and new hearings have been scheduled for next week.

On Friday, the rapporteur announced that he had retained no less than 11 charges against President Bolsonaro, such as “homicide by omission”, “charlatanism”, “genocide of natives” or “crime against humanity”.

Installed almost six months ago, the parliamentary committee of the Senate (CPI) heard nearly 60 witnesses, during often stormy hearings, with many compromising revelations for the Bolsonaro government.

What responsibilities?

Senators first tried to establish the responsibilities of local and federal authorities in the severe oxygen shortage that left dozens of patients with asphyxiation in Manaus hospitals in January.

The ICC has also looked into the delays in the purchase of vaccines, but discovered, during its investigations, other irregularities, including suspicions of corruption.

President Bolsonaro has also been singled out for his anti-confinement speech and for having praised the merits of ineffective “early treatments” against the virus, in particular based on hydroxychloroquine.

The ICC does not have the power to initiate proceedings directly, but its report will be sent to the competent bodies such as the prosecution or the Court of Auditors.
