The federal government offered help to fight the cases of vandalism that happened in the large northern river between the night of Monday, the 13th, and the early hours of this Tuesday, the 14th. On his Twitter profile, the Minister of Justice and Public Security Flávio Dino spoke about the case, saying that, since the beginning of the morning, he has been acting to help combat vandalism and that he has already contacted the governor of the state, Fatima Bezerra (PT). “Early on, the Ministry of Justice has been in contact with the government of Rio Grande do Norte, in order to verify possible support, in view of the local crisis in Public Security. I spoke with Governor Fátima and measures will still be adopted today”, said Dino. The governor, in turn, was at the Ministry’s headquarters in Brasília and stated that, in addition to maintaining contact with Dino, she will meet with other security authorities today, before returning to the state. “I want to declare here all our repudiation of the unacceptable episodes of violence that occurred today in our state and declare here that all the work is being done so that criminals are arrested, tried and punished with all the rigor of the law”, said Fátima in video posted on social media.

Rio Grande do Norte experienced a dawn of chaos in several cities. That’s because criminals attacked several cities, including the capital Natal, setting fire to vehicles and vandalizing public buildings. According to Secretary of State for Public Security and Social Defense (SESED), a man was shot during a confrontation between police and criminals in Natal and succumbed to his injuries. During the response to the attacks, the Rio Grande do Norte police seized weapons, explosive devices, motorcycles, drugs and sums of money. The Secretary of State Security, Colonel Araújo, said that integrated actions between security forces were intensified and guaranteed that there will be no retreat by the government of Rio Grande do Norte. SESED did not report how many cities were attacked, how many occurrences were registered or the types of occurrences.
