An employee at USP (University of São Paulo) took the blame for the death of Filipe Varea Leme, 21. THE geography student found dead last year in a building at Poli (Escola Politécnica).
The student’s supervisor signed an agreement in court in early October, in which he admits negligence and pledges to serve time for community service for eight months. The information is Twitter
Filipe and another colleague used to work as computer monitors at Poli when they were instructed by the supervisor to leave their duties to help a teacher change a room cupboard, although the institution has a maintenance team.
According to UOL, the student’s body was found inside a disabled elevator, cornered by the bookcase, which, when moving with the elevator, crushed the boy’s neck.
The prosecutor in the case, Amaitê Iara Giriboni de Mello, analyzed evidence and confirmed that the supervisor’s “negligence” resulted in manslaughter – when there is no intention to kill.
Amaitê proposed the signing of a Penal Non-Persecution Agreement, in force since last year, after the approval of the “anti-crime package” (Law No. 13.964 / 2019).
Under the new rule, the Public Prosecutor’s Office may propose that the defendant confess the crime in exchange for not having his case brought to justice.
Filipe’s supervisor accepted the proposal and admitted his responsibility. On October 2, Judge Aparecida Angélica Correia ratified the agreement.
