Former Minister of Justice Anderson Torres testified this Thursday morning (16) to the TSE (Superior Electoral Court) in the action that targets former President Jair Bolsonaro for attacks on the electoral system at a meeting with ambassadors at the Alvorada Palace, in July last year.
Torres answered the questions for about 1 hour and 30 minutes via videoconference, at the request of the electoral inspector-general, Minister Benedito Gonçalves.
Among the questions, the former minister was asked about the coup draft found in his home for Bolsonaro to establish a state of defense at the TSE headquarters.
According to Torres’ defense, he reaffirmed what he said in a statement to the PF in February that the coup draft was disposable and ‘without legal viability’.
