Polícia afirma que integrantes de milícia comandada por vereador planejavam assassinar delegado: O Globo reports that the city councilman arrested for involvement in militias and organized crime this week was allegedly planning to have the state judicial police official in charge of the Polinter prison facility, er, whacked out. As we say in Brooklyn.

RIO – O chefe de Polícia Civil, delegado Gilberto Ribeiro, afirmou que integrantes da milícia que seria chefiada pelo vereador Jerônimo Guimarães (PMDB), o Jerominho, preso na quarta-feira na Operação Latifúndio , teriam se reunido para planejar um atentado contra o delegado Herald Espínola Filho, da Polinter. O crime seria em represália à transferência do inspetor André Malvar, que estava preso no Ponto Zero, em Campo Grande.

The chief of the state judicial police of Rio de Janeiro, Gilberto Ribeiro, said that members of the militia alleged headed by city councilman Jerônimo Guimarães (PMDB), known as Jerominho, arrested Wednesday as part of Operation Latifúndio, met to plan an attack on police official Herald Espinola Filha of Polinter. The crime was allegedly to be a reprisal for the transfer of Inspector André Malvar, imprisoned at Ponto Zero in Campo Grande.

A mudança evitou o plano de fuga do policial e transformou Herald em alvo do grupo. De acordo com reportagem publicada nesta quinta-feira pelo jornal ‘O Globo’, o secretário de Segurança, José Mariano Beltrame, confirmou a descoberta do plano, mas ressaltou que a Operação Latifúndio não foi deflagrada em retaliação ao plano.

The transfer foiled an escape plane and turned Herald into a target of the group. According to a report in Thursday’s O Dia, the state security secretar, Beltrame, has confirmed the discovery of the plan, but emphasized that Latifundio was not conducted as a response to that discovery.

– Essas prisões são resultado de um trabalho integrado entre as polícias Civil e Militar, com apoio da Polícia Federal. Um trabalho que não termina agora e serve para confirmar a presença do estado em todas as regiões – disse Beltrame.

“These arrests are the result of coordination between military and state police, with support from the Federal Police. Work that is not finished and serves to confirm the presence of the state in all areas,” Beltrame said.

As informações dos setores de inteligência indicam ainda que, além de Herald, o delegado Paulo Henrique Pinto e três inspetores da Delegacia de Homicídios da Zona Oeste também seriam alvos de atentados. O grupo foi responsável pela investigação sobre o assassinato do inspetor Félix Tostes. De acordo com o inquérito, o crime foi praticado, a mando do vereador Nadinho de Rio das Pedras, pelo inspetor André Malvar, com auxílio do policial Raphael Dias.

Police intelligence indicates that, besides Herald, police captain Paulo Henrique Pinto and three homicide inspectors from the Western Zone was also to be targeted for attacks. The group was responsible for investigating the death of Inspector Félix Tostes. According to the investigation, the crime was carried out on orders from Nadinho de Rio das Pedras by André Malvar, with the help of policeman Raphael Dias.

O vereador Jerominho foi preso durante uma grande operação da Polícia Civil na Favela da Carobinha, em Campo Grande. Ele é acusado de ser o chefe da milícia na favela. De acordo com moradores do local, ele mantém controle do transporte alternativo no bairro. Jerominho é o segundo vereador preso no Rio em um mês por suspeita de participação em milícia. O outro foi Nadinho de Rio das Pedras.

City councilman Jerominho was arrested during a big police operation in Carobinho, a shantytown in Campo Grande. He is accused of leading the militia in the community. According to local residents, he controls alternative transport in the area. He is the second city councilmember arrested on suspicion of militia involvement. The other was Nadinho.

Além de Jerominho, os policiais prenderam o PM Júlio César Oliveira dos Santos, o Julinho Tiroteio. Genro do vereador, o policial civil André Luiz Malvar e o ex-PM Ricardo Teixeira Cruz, o Batman, já estavam presos desde agosto, por envolvimento na tentativa de assassinato do sargento da PM Francisco Oliveira, o Chico Bala, ligado à exploração do transporte alternativo na Região dos Lagos. André Malvar figura ainda na lista de acusados de matar o policial Félix Tostes, chefe da milícia de Rio das Pedras, em fevereiro passado. A Operação Latifúndio também levou o Ministério Público a denunciar o deputado estadual Natalino José Guimarães (PMDB), irmão de Jerominho, como um dos chefes da milícia. Nove pessoas ainda estão foragidas.

Besides Jeromino, police arrested military policeman Júlio César Oliveira dos Santos, alias “Julinho Shootout.” The councilmember’s son-in-law, André Malvar, and former PM Ricardo “Batman”Teixeira Cruz, have been in jail since August, for involvement in the attempted assassination of PM Francisco “Chico Bullets” Oliveira, who is linked to alternative transport in the Região dos Lagos area. Malvar is also one of those accused of killing Toses, head of the militia in Rio das Pedras, last February. Operation Latifundio also led the state prosecutor to accuse state assemblyman Natalino (PMDB), brother of Jeromino, as being a militia leader. Nine persons are still at large in the case.

Natalino is a member of the DEM (ex-PFL) political party.

As investigações da Delegacia de Repressão a Ações Criminosas Organizadas (Draco) revelam que a milícia atua no mínimo em cinco bairros da Zona Oeste há pelo menos oito anos. Com base no levantamento, o procurador-geral de Justiça, Marfan Vieira, denunciou 11 envolvidos por formação de quadrilha e bando armado, crime punido com pena de até oito anos de reclusão. Com exceção do deputado Natalino, que tem imunidade parlamentar – e vai responder a inquérito no Órgão Especial do Tribunal de Justiça -, dez dos citados tiveram as prisões preventivas decretadas pela desembargadora de plantão Mônica Di Piero.

Draco (the organized crime division) investigations revealed that the miitia operates in at least five Western Zone communities, and has for at least eight years. Based on the data, state attorney Vieira charged the 11 suspects with criminal conspiracy and forming an armed band, a crime punishbable with up to 8 years in prison. Except for Natalino, who has parliamentary immunity — and will respond to the charges in [a special forum] — ten of the suspects had warrants issued by the judge on duty, Judge Di Piero.

Beltrame said he was serious about going after this problem, and now there are visible actions being taken. This is a good thing. Vote this man a raise. And some extra bodyguards.
