[Maggessi] said she was much more concerned with the present of the MST [Landless Rural Workers Movement] in the Rocinha shantytown than with the activity of militias in Rio. Marina fears a possible alliance between the drug traffic and the MST. “The MST is politicizing Rocinha …”
Deputada diz que foi ameaçada por policiais federais (Agência Estado): Marina Maggessi, a Rio state police inspector and federal legislator, told a Rio state legislative commission on “militias” that she is being “threatened” by the federal police over a wiretap in which she was heard recommending the “whacking out” of an police corruption informant.
Someone later did, in fact, try to whack that informant out. Poor guy lost several fingers, but survived after being ambushed, in classic sicário style, on the Av. Atlántica in Copacabana, in broad daylight.
Maggessi, who recently released an autohagiographical “authorized biography” (above), says she was only speaking figuratively when she used the phrase, “What that guy needs is a whole lot of bullets between the horns” in her conversation with a Rio cop later indicted on organized crime and corruption charges.
A deputada federal e policial civil licenciada Marina Magessi [sic] (PPS-RJ) disse, em depoimento à Comissão Parlamentar de Inquérito (CPI) das Milícias da Assembléia Legislativa do Rio, que deputados federais integrantes da CPI dos Grampos da Câmara estão sendo ameaçados “por grupos da Polícia Federal”.
Federal deputy and state police inspector Marina Magessi [sic] (PPS-RJ) said in testimony to the state legislative commission on Militias that federal deputies working on the CPI of Illegal Wiretaps in the federal congress are being threatened by “groups inside the federal police.”
Marina, que faz parte da CPI dos Grampos, denunciou que policiais federais a ameaçaram com a abertura de inquérito baseado em escutas telefônicas antigas, que registraram diálogos entre a deputada e o policial civil Hélio Machado da Conceição, o Helinho, preso por suspeita de envolvimento em um esquema de lavagem de dinheiro, facilitação de contrabando e corrupção.
Marina, who is a member of the federal CPI of Illegal Wiretaps, charged that federal police agents threatened to open a probe into her conduct based on old wiretaps that captured her conversations with state policeman Hélio Machado de Conceição, known as Helinho, arrested on suspicion of money laundering, facilitating contraband activities, and corruption.
Helinhos was one of the so-called “Inhos,” a group of senior police officials tied to state police chief Álvaro Lins.
Lins ran successfully for the state assembly in 2006, gaining parliamentary immunity against charges he ran a protection scheme for the illegal gambling machines rackets while leading the state police under the Garotinho II (Evita) administration.
Lins was recently impeached and lost his parliamentary immunity.
