In a letter sent to the new director general of the Police, Andrei Passos, the examining magistrate in the case, Alexandre de Moraes, requested the presentation of “collected evidence”.
In the letter, the magistrate indicated that this evidence can “identify” to the agents who could “incur in crimes” during the collection of the same.
On January 8, thousands of followers of the former president Jair Bolsonaro, who does not accept defeat at the polls last October 30 in the second round of elections, invaded and depredated the Congress, the Supreme Court and the Planalto presidential palace.
The radical Bolsonaristas had been Camped outside the Army headquarters asking for a military intervention to overthrow the current president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who obtained 50.9% of valid votes compared to 49.1% of Bolsonaro.

More than were arrested for the anti-democratic acts1,800 people, of which some 600 were released because they were elderly, people with health problems and mothers accompanied by minor children, but they can be called to answer for the process.
De Moraes thus responded to a request from the General Attorney of the Republic that asked to investigate various public agents.
Among those investigated are the governor of the Federal District of Brasilia, Ibaneis Rocha, who was separated from office for ninety days, and his then Secretary of Security, Anderson Torres, Bolsonaro's last Justice Minister.
De Moraes ordered the provisional dismissal of Rocha and the prison of Torres, who was in the United States and returned to the country on Saturday to turn himself in before the authorities.
The former president, who is in the United States, was also included in the investigations into the process for his alleged participation as the intellectual author of the coup attempt.

On January 10, a prosecutor asked the Brazilian Court of Accounts to block the assets of former president Jair Bolsonaro, according to official sources.
Some Brazilian parliamentarians have already asked the Justice to act to force Bolsonaro to return to the country with the idea of clarifying his alleged responsibility for the “terrorist” and “coup” acts experienced in Brasilia.
The former head of state (2019-2022) also has several cases pending with the courts related to the dissemination of false news about democratic institutions and the covid-19 pandemic, and the leaking of secret documents during his Administration, among others.
The deputy attorney general of the Public Ministry before the Court of Accounts, Lucas Rocha, also asked to extend the sanction to the suspended governor of Brasilia, Ibaneis Rocha, and his former secretary of Security, Anderson Torres, a faithful ally of Bolsonaro.
Rocha justified his demand “due to the process of rendering accounts and the vandalism that occurred” in the Brazilian capital on January 8 , “which caused innumerable damages to the federal treasury.”

The prosecutor does not mention in his brief what is the alleged link between the coup attempt perpetrated by the radical Bolsonarism and the ex-right-wing president.
Last Sunday,thousands of Bolsonaro supporters invaded and caused serious damage to the offices of Parliament, the Presidency and the Supreme Court for four hours until they were dispersed by security forces.
