However, graphic testimonies show the close link between the former head of the PTB and the current head of state, who is ultimately responsible for the polarization of the South American nation, according to the leader of the Workers’ Party, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

In this sense, Lula published that “hate, violence and contempt for the law. Roberto Jefferson is not just a criminal and one of the main allies of our adversary: ​​he is the face of what Bolsonaro preaches.”

According to the Federal Police, Jefferson fired at a patrol car that was in the vicinity of his house, meanwhile, wounding two agents with shrapnel from a grenade, who were treated and later released.

The former deputy, who had been under house arrest since last year, was presented with an arrest warrant by the Supreme Federal Court (STF) after failing to comply with the rules of his sentence.
