The Public Ministry of Paraná today asked the Justice to decree secrecy in the investigation of the murder of municipal guard Marcelo Arruda, shot dead this Saturday (9) by criminal police officer Jorge José da Rocha Guaranho, who invaded the place where the victim was celebrating his 50th anniversary with a PT themed party alluding to former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in Foz do Iguaçu (PR).
In the request, the prosecution asked the investigation a series of measures. Among them, the examination of the content of the cell phone of the author of the crime and the request of the functional file of Guaranho from the Depen (National Penitentiary Department).
In the request, prosecutor Tiago Lisboa Mendonça requests the confidentiality of the investigation, to avoid interference in the investigation conducted by the Civil Police of Paraná.
“This is a serious fact, of great repercussion. The indiscriminate access to the records (…) could disrupt and interfere negatively in the investigations, especially due to the existence of several investigative steps still in progress”, says one of the excerpts of the document. , to which the UOL had access.
The Public Ministry also requests that the Union of Federal Agents of Criminal Execution of Catanduvas (PR), where Guaranho works, does not have access to the records. The entity appointed a lawyer to represent the shooter, who claimed self-defense and asked for a drunk test on the PT member who was murdered by the criminal police.
“In relation to strangers to the deed, such as the union or any other representative entity, due to the absence of legal provision, as well as jurisprudential understanding, it requires that they be disabled”, quotes one of the excerpts of the prosecutor’s request.
