Justice Celso de Mello of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) held a statement by General Prosecutor Augusto Aras and rejected requests from three political parties regarding an investigation involving the president of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro, among them the request for the seizure of the mobile phone of the head of the Federal Executive.
