Commander of the Car Wash Task Force’s police task force, in Curitiba, he was named to the rank of number 3 in the corporation’s hierarchy published in the edition of the Official Gazette this Thursday (17).
The ordinance of appointment was signed by Chief of Staff, Onyx Lorenzoni.
Igor, as he is known, is a trusted man of the Minister of Justice and Public Security, Sergio Moro, and one of the main names of the “Republic of Curitiba” that the former Car Wash judge took to the Jair Bolsonaro government. The former head of Car Wash takes over the position of delegate Elzio Vicente da Silva.
In Curitiba, Igor Romario de Paula was a regional delegate for Investigation and Fight against Organized Crime of the Federal Police Superintendent in Parana.
He was the coordinator of the 57 phases of Car Wash that have been unleashed so far and was responsible for the integration between the team that dismantled the biggest corruption scheme in the federal government: the scandal involving Petrobras.
Under his command, Car Wash set up a model of anti-corruption that has been endorsed by Moro. The Minister of Justice wants to see the task force system replicated in the country (with the integration of the Federal Reserve, the Financial Activities Control Council, and the Federal Public Ministry) – both in the fight against white collar crimes, like corruption and money laundering, as against criminal factions.
