The Attorney General's Office (PGR) denounced another 152 people for the coup acts of January 8. Actions have already been filed against 653 people in court.
The Prosecutor's Office requests separate prosecution of the offenses and accumulation of possible penalties. In addition, it demands that the prisoners pay a minimum compensation taking into account "the collective moral damages evidenced."
More than 1 400 people have been arrested in connection with the coup actions. The STF decided to keep 942 people in preventive custody, while 464 were released.
