Based on a bill presented by President Jair Bolsonaro when he was a deputy, the National Congress is discussing passing a new anti-terrorism law that would broaden the definition of this crime and the powers of the chief executive at the same time.
The project is criticized by social movements and by the UN (United Nations), which see the possibility of the government using the new law to persecute opponents – such as the use that the Bolsonaro administration had been making of the National Security Law, revoked by the Congress.
In this Wednesday’s (15th) episode, Café da Manhã talks with Guilherme France, a master at FGV and author of the book “The Origins of the Anti-Terrorism Law”, about what the bill in progress in Congress says, what risks it poses. entails and the interests behind the initiative.
