Brazil's Trials of 'Coup' Rioters Begin

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

The supreme court of Brazil is set to begin trials for hundreds of supporters of former president Jair Bolsonaro who were involved in storming and vandalizing the country’s congress, presidential palace, and court.

The insurrection, which occurred in Brasília shortly after the inauguration of leftwing leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, has been labelled as an attempted coup.

The Supreme Court has indicated that it will take a tough stance in punishing those involved.

The trials will serve as an opportunity for accountability and for the justice system to emphasize the seriousness of the crimes committed.

Seeking to overthrow the state alone carries a punishment of between four and 12 years, with prosecutors requesting sentences of up to 30 years.

This marks an important moment for Brazil to reinforce the message that political violence and attempts to overthrow elected governments are serious crimes that will not be tolerated.
