Marielle Fernanda Chaves, who was in the car with the councilwoman on the day she was killed, said that the arrest of retired PM Ronie Lessa and former PM Elcio Queiroz, accused of the crime, is an “important step towards the investigation “, but recalled that the most important is to reach the constituents of the implementation.
“It’s not easy to wake up and run into the figures accused of machine-gunning the car I was in, responsible for ending the lives of Marielle and Anderson,” she said excitedly. “But the news is telling us about the seizure of material and equipment, which may be essential to reach the constituents.” This is the most important of the answers, who had Marielle killed. were the motivations. ”

“We are two days away from completing one year of execution, by Alielle Marielle and Anderson Gomes. This news (from the arrest of two suspects), although in a context of tremendous tragedy, is a positive one. “It is not an executor without a principal, without a chain of a criminal organization,” Alencar said.
Federal Deputy Marcelo Freixo (PSOL) said in his Twitter account that the arrests of Marielle and Anderson’s executors are important and belated. “It’s unacceptable that it takes a year for us to have any response,” said Freixo. “It’s a decisive step for the investigations, but the case is not resolved.
