Rampage in Brasilia: Bolesonarists released by police “for humanitarian reasons”

They rocked Brazil and its institutions this weekend and are already “liberated”. Half a thousand people arrested after the attack on official buildings in Brasilia on Sunday, who were imprisoned in the gymnasium of the National Academy of the Federal Police, got off to board buses that took them to the bus station, from where they could return home. AFP.

In one of the buses, passengers shouted “Victory is ours!” Some leaned out of the windows, clenching their fists or making a V in victory. The federal police confirmed in a statement that 599 people were released “on humanitarian grounds,” including the elderly, people with health problems or mothers with young children.

Not all buses leaving the Federal Police Academy went to the bus station. Some took the detainees to the police station and then transferred to the Papud prison complex, where 527 suspects were being held.

“Nazi concentration camp”

“The federal police training school has turned into a Nazi concentration camp. It is humiliating to see how good people like us are treated,” said Agostinho Ribeiro, one of the freed Bosonarists, as he got off the bus at the bus station. A completely different version was put forward by a woman who wished to remain anonymous. “Everyone was treated well, no one died there,” she said.

The federal police denied reports that the elderly man who had been arrested died on Monday at his academy headquarters. Authorities reported approximately 1,500 arrests in total between Bolsonarists who invaded the Presidential Palace, the Supreme Court, or Congress and those who were camped in front of army headquarters.

The invasion and looting of the places of power in Brasilia, reminiscent of the searches of the Capitol in Washington two years ago, caused significant material damage, especially to priceless works of art.
