The former commander and Torres were arrested by decision of the Minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) Alexandre de Moraes after the anti-democratic acts of January 8.
The arrests were requested by the PF, which pointed out the omission and connivance of the local authorities in controlling the acts, which occurred, according to the corporation, with the consent of those responsible for public security in the Federal District.
After also receiving a search and seizure warrant, the PF found at Torres’ house, in Brasília, a draft of a state of defense decree to be enforced at the Superior Electoral Court (TSE). The document would aim to “change the outcome of the 2022 elections”.
When commenting on the case on social networks, before turning himself over to the PF, Torres said that the document was leaked out of context”.
