Federal deputy Gustavo Gayer (PL-GO) said this Wednesday (24) that he presented a request to summon former president Dilma Rousseff (PT) to provide clarifications at the MST CPI. The parliamentarian wants the former representative to explain the “attempted invasion of the MST” to the Federal Supreme Court (STF) in 2014, and invasions of private properties during her government.

“I presented a request summoning former President Dilma to the MST CPI to provide clarification on the attempted invasion by the MST of the STF in 2014, and on the growth in the number of invasions of private properties during her government”, said the deputy in the twitter.

On February 12, 2014, Minister Ricardo Lewandowski had to suspend a session of the Court for about 50 minutes due to an attempted invasion by members of the MST. The protest carried out by the group had about 20 thousand militants, who asked for more speed in the agrarian reform. The attempted invasion was contained by security forces.

“The summoning of former president Dilma Rousseff, as a witness, serves to clarify the agreements and agreements signed with 43 NGOs
linked to the MST that received Union resources in the PT governments since 2002″, says the justification for the request.
