Brazil’s Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes has ordered the military to dismantle all encampments of Bolsonaro supporters across the country within 24 hours, according to a court order, and ordered police to arrest people still on the streets. any protesters on board.
“Absolutely nothing can justify the existence of an entire camp of terrorists sponsored by various financiers and the complacency of the civilian and military authorities to completely subvert the necessary respect for the Federal Constitution,” the order reads.
At least 400 people were arrested after supporters of former Brazilian leader Jair Bolsonaro stormed the main government building in Brasilia on Sunday, according to Brazilian authorities. Supporters of Bolsonaro have been camped out in the capital since his presidential election defeat last October.
Commanders of the armed forces, police and defense minister will be held accountable in court if the camps are not dismantled, Moraes said, adding that all highways in the country must be cleared by Monday.
