Minister Maria Claudia Bucchianeri, of the Superior Electoral Court, ordered the removal of a video that does not associate the candidate Ciro Gomes with the candidate Jair Bolsonaro.
The minister accepted a request from Ezikelly Barros and Walber Agra, legal coordinators of the Ciro Gomes campaign.
Second to the minister, the affirmations that “Ciro Gomes is officially a member of the hate cabinet” do not seem to fit the contours of freedom of expression drawn by the TSE for the electoral process of 2022.
“Configuring excess or direct political criticism, with the deliberate intention of prejudicing a certain candidacy, of achieving the honor of the respective candidate and of feeding disinformation narrative about or (non-existent) support of Ciro Gomes to Jair Messias Bolsonaro, as well as about the positions of people referred candidate on strategic issues for the country”, disse.
The minister further affirmed that there is a norm that establishes that “free manifestation of the thought of an elected person identified or identified on the internet is subject to limitation when disclosing knowingly untrue facts”.
“O case, therefore, it seems to be those in which this Superior Court is understood to adopt the necessary measures to prevent abusive practices or the dissemination of false news, in order to protect the honor of two candidates and guarantee the free exercise of the vote”, he affirmed.
Bolsonaro’s campaign was promoted, but he did not protest yet.
