Deputies Eduardo Bolsonaro, Bia Kicis and Soraya Manato questioned the basis of the accusations, as they were based on publications on social media.
“It is an attack by opposition parliamentarians on freedom of expression. This is my post on social media as an opinion. We are seeing our prerogatives and our parliamentary immunity being violated”, argued Bia Kicis.
Soraya Manato said that the lawsuit against her is “a bullshit”. “I think it’s absurd that we’re being sued, that we’re here wasting our time with this bunch of bullshit, idiocy,” she said.
Eduardo Bolsonaro denied having made comments against women. He accused leftist parties of using the processes to attack the government.
“The left’s strategy is to wage a war of narratives just to create headlines in newspapers that aim to denigrate us,” he said. “If someone feels wronged, it is better to go to court than to the Ethics Council. We already know that these processes here are very likely to go nowhere.”
Deputy Éder Mauro, on his social networks, mocked the representation against him. “I am happy to have PT and Psol representation on the Ethics Council or whatever. It is a sign that I am on the right path.”
For Carla Zambelli, the “close everything policy has demeaned the freedom and property right of thousands of Brazilians in various states of the country and we do not negotiate our constitutional right to protest”. Deputy Wilson Santiago said he will not speak.
