“The issuance of the arrest warrant today is contrary to the decision rendered by the very Regional Federal Court of the 4th Region (TRF4) on 01/24, that established a condition for the measure – incompatible with the presumption of innocence guarantee – which is the exhaustion of the possible appeals to be presented before the aforementioned Court, what has not happened yet. The defense has not been even served with notice in regard to the appellate decision that judged the motion for clarification in a trial that took place on 03/23. It would still be possible, in theory, to file another motion for clarification with TRF4 against such appellate decision.”
