  • Brazil justice minister threatens to quit over police appointment source says

Brazil's popular attorney general, Sergio Moroni, is on Friday resigned.

He accused the president of trying to remove the federal police chief for no other reason than to secure intelligence on police investigations.

It was immediately the stock exchange in São Paulo to fall eight percent.

Analysts say Mr Moro's departure crowns a "politicization" process of governmental organs battling corruption despite Mr Bolsonaro insisting during his 2018 election campaign that he would provide transparency and honesty. Several of the Car Wash investigations in the southern city of Curitiba involved politicians linked to that administration.

But Brazil's public prosecutor Augusto Aras asked the Supreme Court to allow an investigation into Mr Moro's allegations against the president.

In addition, the president criticized Moro, saying that he admired the former minister when he was a judge in charge of corruption cases, but got to know his true nature when they started working together.

He added that Bolsonaro fired federal police chief Mauricio Valeixo without accepting a replacement for the position. The police chief is known as Moros allies.

Brazil's government has been plunged into turmoil after the resignation of one of Jair Bolsonaro's most powerful minsters sparked protests, calls for the president's impeachment and an investigation into claims he had improperly interfered in the country's federal police.

Yet the relationship between the two has grown tense, especially as Bolsonaro showed interest in changing the leadership of the federal police force in Rio de Janeiro, where he built his political base in three decades as a lawmaker.

The firing of Valeixo, which Moro said was unfounded, proved to be the final straw. He is already in violation headwind to ignore the coronavirus.

Bolsonaro has repeatedly played down the virus risky and stressed that the economic downturn killed more people than the corona. He ignores the injunction on the physical distance in order not to infection.

Amid a looming coronavirus crisis, and just a week after Bolsonaro sacked his popular health minister, the explosive accusations left many wondering how long Bolsonaro's beleaguered government could survive.
