Maintained the arrest of fans accused of attempted murder in Brasilia

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Justice Luiz Fux of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) denied the continuation (decided as non-viable) of two habeas corpus (HCs) 145330 and 145332 that had been prosecuted in favor of two fans of Palmeiras preventively arrested on a charge of attempted murder in the match against Flamengo in June 2016 at the Mané Garrincha Stadium, in Brasília (DF).

L.A.L. And G.A.S. were preventively detained by the judgment of the Court of Jury of Brasília. The Federal District Court and Territories (TJDFT) denied habeas corpus whereby were asked the release of the custodians, and then the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) denied an appeal with the same purpose.

According to the Justice Fux, preventive custody to guarantee public order is justified by the concrete gravity of the crime. "By the way, preventive detention based on the protection of public order in the light of the modus operandi of conduct, is supported by the jurisprudence of this Court," he said.
