Gateway Pundit spoke to one of the lawyers defending the “Lulag” prisoners in Brasilia, Dr. Claudio Luis Caiano, law firm Soulivre (I am free). Kayano says the detention without evidence of nearly 700 detainees is a “clear violation of legal norms” and the detainees are entitled to damages.
How many prisoners were arrested?
The number of prisoners has reached 1389 and our group is 16. 9 people have already been released, but we still have 6 men and 1 woman in preventive detention.
What are the charges? Is there any evidence?

Charges range from incitement to crime and criminal association to subversion of a democratic state and terrorism. There is no evidence for any of the allegations. They were generalized in such a way that behavior was impersonal. It is prohibited in the Brazilian legal system and in the federal constitution.
How were the prisoners treated?
They were deceived. First, it must be said that the army chief, General Arruda, was rescued by the army police outside the army headquarters as he did not agree to the arrests. After a heated discussion, it was agreed that the prisoners would be divided and then released.
However, they were tricked into boarding buses without knowing that they were being arrested. He assured them that they would be taken to a safe place.
No representatives of human rights NGOs or lawyers from the Bar Association (OAB) were present on Tuesday itself.
In the Federal Police Gym, they received nothing but rations of what they called water and food. It was inedible.
Is it true that they were forcibly waxed?
No. It was a mainstream media rumor.
Do they have access to a lawyer?
Yes. At no time did the Federal Police prevent access to lawyers.
Will there be an inquiry?
This is a difficult question to answer. All of them are being charged under Case 4879, which is an investigation into anti-democratic acts. It is presided over by the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Alexandre de Moraes.
This is a serious attack on the Brazilian legal system. These political prisoners deserve to be treated like any other citizen, that is, they should be arraigned in a district court, not by the Supreme Court. This is a clear violation of legal norms.
Is it true that the captives are dead?
No. Fortunately, this is hearsay. Approximately 30 people received emergency medical treatment and some were sent to the hospital, but there were no deaths.
Is it true that the prisoner tried to commit suicide?
Yes. The young man, aged around 30, cut his wrists, but fortunately, the cuts were superficial.
Where are the children kept?
About 700 detainees remain in jail. There were women, children and old people there when they were tricked into boarding the buses. The elderly and children were released on Monday and Tuesday. There were even some pets adopted by “dangerous” protesters.
Are any human rights organizations involved?
Prisoners have access only to lawyers. No other organizations are involved. We have an association called SouLivre, just starting with no funding or donations. That is how we are protecting the prisoners.
Released inmates were ordered to use electronic ankle bracelets, observe a 10pm curfew, maintain a designated perimeter and not meet other demonstrators.

The The note was signed by the prisoners “Admission of Guilty” has the unfortunate name, but the detainee must be aware of what the state is charging him with.
It should be noted that the evidence lies with the accused. The state, apparently in a fishing expedition, seized all their cell phones for investigation.
In the future, these detainees will be entitled to compensation for inhumane, unreasonable, illegal and inhumane treatment in violation of the American Convention on Human Rights, the 4th Geneva Convention and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We will pursue this case through all the instances.
