The president Jair Bolsonaro he stated, on Monday, 28, that he has “no way of knowing what happens in the ministries”. The statement took place in conversation with supporters, on the way out of the Palácio da Alvorada, when commenting on the case of the purchase of the vaccine Covaxin. The acquisition process of the Indian immunizing agent, manufactured by Bharat Biotech, came under the radar of CPI to Covid-19 in recent days and has become the main focus of the commission’s investigation, especially after the deputy’s testimony Luis Miranda (DEM-DF) and his brother, Luis Ricardo, head of import for the Ministry of Health, to the collegiate, on Friday, 25.

“I get everyone. He presented it, I didn’t even know about the issue, how was the Covaxin deal, because there are 22 ministries. Only the ministry of Rogério Marinho [Desenvolvimento Regional], has more than 20 thousand works. of tarcisius [Infraestrutura], I do not know. It has a dozen, a hundred works. There’s no way to know. Damares, Justice, Education. So, I have no way of knowing what happens in the ministries, I trust ministers and we did nothing wrong. The guys set the narrative,” he added. The president referred to the meeting he had with Luis Miranda and his brother, on March 20, in which, according to the congressman, Bolsonaro was informed about alleged irregularities in the purchase of Covaxin.

In the conversation, still according to the federal deputy, the head of the federal executive would have said that the government leader in the Chamber of Deputies, Ricardo Barros (PP-PR), would be involved in the “roll”. So far, however, the president has not commented on this matter. In his Twitter profile, Ricardo Barros stated that he is not the congressman cited by Luis Miranda and made himself available to Covid-19’s CPI. At the Friday, 25th session, commission members said they would invite the government leader to provide clarification on the purchase of Covaxin. In parallel, there is the expectation that senators present a criminal report against Bolsonaro in the Federal Supreme Court (STF), under the justification that the president prevaricated by not reporting a suspected irregularity to the competent authorities.
