The general-director of Legislative Assembly of Parana, Abib Miguel, must be removed from this function as soon as possible to avoid a possible interference in investigations from Public Ministry with evidences destruction or data manipulation about the denunciations done yesterday by Gazeta do Povo and RPCTV. This is the position of Operational Support Center from Prosecutions of Public Patrimony Protection (Caop) from Curitiba, according to the group coordinator, the prosecutor Arion Rolim Pereira.

In this period, this group of people received R$ 11,2 thousand in 624 deposits, with average of R$ 18 thousand in each money movement. Between the benefited ones are the Abib’s gardener, Izidoro Vosilk, of 82 years old(R$ 192 thousand) and his counter, Douglas Bastos Pequeno, that received money even living at São João d’Aliança (state of Goias).

Yesterday, the general procurator from Parana’s Public Ministry, Olympio Sá Sotto Maior, informed that have reinforce the investigation group from Caop, composed by six prosecutors and one procurator. “Possibly, I will move prosecutors from other areas to act there too”.
