The far-right deputy Carla Zambelli, one of the main allied leaders of President Jair Bolsonaro, was filmed today chasing supporters of former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva with a gun in the Jardins neighborhood, one of the most exclusive areas of the Brazilian city of Saint Paul.
Zambelli was filmed crossing a street pointing her automatic pistol at a person on the corner of Lorena and Joaquim Eugenio de Lima streets, 800 meters from the farewell caravan of Lula’s campaign on Paulista Avenue.
The far-right deputy is one of the main defendants in the electoral campaign by the Electoral Justice for disseminating fake news against Lula.
After the scandal generated by targeting the Lulistas, whom he threatened with death, Zambelli, one of the deputies with the most votes for Bolsonarism, said that the action was due to an attack perpetrated against her by Lula’s followers, after which He reacted with his gun.
The deputy filmed a video on Instagram making a complaint to the police, less than 24 hours before the electoral ballot.
Last Sunday, a far-right Bolsonarist, Roberto Jefferson, resisted arrest by throwing three grenades and 20 rifle shots at federal police officers, after which he turned himself in in a case for attacking democracy.
Zambelli had said that he was breaking off relations with Jefferson because it was intolerable to shoot policemen.
Federal deputy Sâmia De Souza Bomfim, from the Socialism and Liberty Party, assured that they will request “the cessation of the mandate” of Zambrelli. “His criminal actions could have caused a huge tragedy,” she said through her Twitter account.
