For the police, wheb appointed former President Lula to head  the Civil House  of the Presidency last year,  both President Dilma andLula, caused “embarrassment to the progress of Lava Jato’s investigation” . The investigation took place within the scope of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), but as the three investigated no longer have privilege of forum by position or function, it should be referred to the federal court of first instance.
