Nearly a month after resigning from his political office and leaving the country under threat, former federal deputy Jean Wyllys is touring Europe giving talks on the political situation at home. He started in Berlin and claims to have already been invited to speak in Portugal, France, Sweden, and Canada. Not everyone is contaminated by the stupidity virus and the prejudice that has infected the new government of Brazil and some of the voters cheering for it he said last Monday, June 18th, just before lecturing at the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, linked to the Die Linke, a left-wing German party. “The current Minister of Justice intends to legalize and broaden the potential for people to be murdered. Behind it is an attempt to legalize the oppression against the political opposition to Bolsonaro’s government,” he said, according to Radio France Internationale (RFI). In an interview with Folha de S.Paulo, Wyllys cast doubt on Sergio Moro’s commitment, while the Federal Police is under his jurisdiction, to investigate the denunciations of threats made against him. “I don’t trust his willingness to get to the bottom of this, because I am convinced that, in the depths of this sewer, there are people connected to the family who invited him to be Minister of Justice.”
