Ignoring Covid: recommendation to prosecute Bolsonaro

A Brazilian parliamentary committee has recommended that President Jair Bolsonaro be tried for crimes against humanity. This has been done for not dealing with the Covid epidemic properly. The country's parliamentary committee has recommended the trial of Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro on nine charges. Apart from crimes against humanity, these allegations also include quackery.
Senator Rennan Calhieros presented the committee's final report. This committee was investigating the policies of President Bolsonaro's government regarding the corona virus. This report has been presented after six months of investigation. The nearly 1,200-page report also alleges misuse of government funds. The report says that apart from recommending malaria medicine at the beginning of Covid, the government did not take any other policy decision.

See, where did the vaccine reach Bolsonaro, in addition to criminal prosecution, the committee has also recommended his impeachment. However, the decision to accept such recommendations rests with the president of the Chamber of Deputies, who is considered close to Bolsonaro. Not a charge of murder The charges in which the committee recommended for trial did not include serious charges like genocide and murder of tribals. Although these allegations were discussed. Apart from the President, the committee has also nominated 65 other persons and two industries in the report. The committee had 11 members. Of these, seven are associated with opposition parties or are independents. During the last six months, the committee recorded statements of dozens of people.

The committee is likely to vote on this report next week. A majority would be needed to pass the report, which would then be sent to the Prosecutor General. The Prosecutor General will decide on the prosecution. Bolsonaro's dominance decreased, 22 million people in Brazil became victims of the corona virus epidemic. More than six lakh people have lost their lives there. The country's health system was completely destroyed during the pandemic. Due to this a large number of deaths occurred in March and April.

Despite this situation, Bolsonaro did not give much importance to the seriousness of the coronavirus from the beginning. He expressed doubts on the vaccine and did not even take measures like imposing strict restrictions. He repeatedly said that he himself did not get any vaccine. Bolsonaro is also accused of delaying the purchase of a vaccine for Brazil, which is the third most affected country in the world after the US and India. Public support for the Bolsonaro government is steadily declining. In a survey conducted by Datafola in September, 53 percent of people rejected the president's policies. This is the lowest level of support since Bolsonaro took power in 2019. VK/AA (AP, DPA).
