The defense of the elected president, Jair Bolsonaro (PSL-RJ), delivered Friday afternoon (16) to Minister Luís Roberto Barroso in the Board of Appeal (TSE), a document of clarification of 23 deficiencies received by the Court of Auditors' and party accounts (Asepa) about a series of irregularities and indications that omission of the options in the campaign's liability was omitted.
Among the shortcomings in the documentation provided by the bolsonaro campaign were indications of indirect receipt of donations from closed sources, lack of details in the employment of companies and evidence of services performed and even deviating information between donor data in accounting and those included in the Federal Revenue database.
Karina de Paula Kufa, a lawyer who signs the document on 50 pages, requires a technical opinion for the approval of the accounts and that they are ultimately judged to be approved by the court.
Karina begins the document confirming that the campaign for the elected president and its alternate, Hamilton Mourão, began "without many resources", which concerned the resources of the special fund financing fund in order to disagree about its creation and the observed expenses in their realities. "The use of public resources to such an extent is a fear of character, given the installed economic crisis and the high level of unemployment installed in the country."
According to the defense, Fernando Haddad (PT) and Manuela DÁvila (PCdoB) spent in both rounds R 36.3 million, while Bolsonaro and Mourão, only R $ 2.45 million.
The use of social networks and search for sellers outside the traditional political market, "at prices compatible with the private market", drastically defended the cost of the campaign.
Among the shortcomings in the documentation from the Bolsonaro campaign was the lack of a previous registration of the company AM4, which could not act in collecting resources through collective funding. One of the contracts analyzed by TSE concerns the installation of a platform developed by AM4 to receive donations via the Internet.
The defense informs Barroso, the appointed president's accountability officer, that AM4, the largest supplier of the Bolsonaro campaign, and Ingresso Total are members of the same economic group, the AM4 Group and jointly developed "More Que Voto" for party leadership and selected candidates, including for the management of donations.
According to the lawyer, all donations by Aixmobil, responsible for the platform's payment arrangement, were collected, not by AM4, and the details of these donations presented in the SPCE.
All invoices regarding administrative fees were issued by Aixmobil and were also presented, complementing the defense.
"AM4 and Ingresso Total entered into a partnership so that the Mais Que Voto platform, which provides the full communication and management interface for candidates and parties, could be integrated into Aixmobil's payment arrangement platform so that the services of collective funding through the internet", says the defense.
"Thus, the credits on the promotional bank account have been made by Aixmobil, as it was the collector responsible for the payment arrangement on the Mais Que Voto platform. The agreement with Aixmobil was signed directly by AM4, who developed the Mais platform. That I vote in partnership with Ingresso Total, according to the instrument presented in this event. "
The report from the TSE technical area requests the defense to explain the reasons for Bolsonaro's refusal to receive donations amounting to R 95 thousand dollars.
The lawyer replies that the chosen candidate has decided to only accept donations made by the collective financing system and that it is not reasonable to require the candidate to accept any donation made to his bank account. "The above-mentioned donations were made to the candidate's promotional account without being fully aware of their origin rules. The campaign therefore chose not to use the current resources and chose to repay the amounts to each donor. Given the fact that there is no prohibition in the legislation on return on revenue that has entered the campaign account as a suspected candidate. "
The TSE opinion also shows that the campaign did not match the deadline for submission of the financial report of a donation whose revenues amounted to R $ 1.56 million. The defense motivates the delay due to delayed processing of the data of the Electance Accountability System (SPCE) ", so there was no tax evasion, and there were no irregularities."
"The delay was due to the slow processing of SPCE's import of donations and it was not due to the applicant's error due to the significant amount of data that would be charged by the system, which in no way damaged the regularity of the information, which was properly provided."
According to the technical area of TSE, Bolsonaro's reporting provides donations to the campaigns of Flávio Bolsonaro (PSL-RJ) and Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP), the selected president's children, a total of R $ 345,000, but not informed donors from the resources.
The Armed Forces demands that the irregularity stated in the opinion be removed, saying that it is not a legal obligation and that the consideration of the information is already in the SPCE. "It should be noted that in addition to the information about the original donors – sent to the applicants benefited from this account provider – to the information in the tab corresponding to" donation to third parties "attached to the transfer certificate, which is repeated again at this time when the recipient had obligation and responsibility for the information in SPCE, the detailed information of SPCE was also performed immediately during the presentation of the current rectifier. "
In the case of proof that the options are missing in the amount of R $ 147 900 from the comparison with the supplier's electronic invoices issued to the candidate, the campaign states that invoices have been duly canceled by the suppliers, as they are not the auditor's costs.
The option also points out the difference in the identification of donors at R $ 5,030.00. The defense informs that the irregularities occurred from "the donor's misconception at the time of registration on the platform". "The donor reported a name and a CPF in the registry and entered another name and another CPF used by the credit card holder. Although the collection system had anti-fraud locks, which discovered this type of divergence, these 22 records were processed as valid."
"In order to settle the accounts, it will be arranged to pay the unidentified difference for the public wallet," said the lawyer. "In addition, the spontaneous return spends ongoing treatment and does not compromise the correctness of the candidate, so this subject should be removed."
