Former Secretary of Culture, Regina Duarte, became a defendant in a lawsuit in the Federal Court of Rio. According to the complaint, found by columnist Anselmo Gois, from the newspaper O Globo, Duarte is typified in the crime of apology for crimes of torture and deaths committed in the dictatorship.
The columnist points out that the complaint was made by Lygia Jobim, daughter of the late ambassador José Jobim, murdered by “suicide” in March 1979, after being kidnapped when he was going to denounce corruption in the military regime. He was considered one of the victims of the dictatorship by the National Truth Commission.
She claims that Regina, during her controversial interview with CNN Brasil, which aired on May 7, put the military’s actions in perspective.
Among her requests, Lygia demands compensation of R $ 70 thousand.
