The investigation of the CNMP would have no practical effect against Sérgio Moro, because it was only a disciplinary body of the Public Prosecution Service. In Moro's case, since he is no longer a judge, there would also be no disciplinary investigation by the National Justice Council (CNJ).
"Without advancing any merit judgment, it is observed that the indicated context asserts an eventual deviation in the conduct of Members of the Federal Public Prosecutor's Office, which, in theory, may characterize functional lack, notably violation of functional duties," Rochadel wrote in his office .
The Intercept news site
published messages attributed to Dallagnol and Sergio Moro
, which indicate that the two have combined operations in Operation Lava-Jet. The report also cites messages suggesting the prosecutors' doubts about the evidence to request Lula's conviction in the case of the Guarujá trio, a few days before the complaint was filed.
Conversations made public also suggest that prosecutors
would have discussed a way to bar the interview of the former president
authorized by a minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), before the first round of the election.
