“At the present time of the criminal investigation, the reasons for maintaining the extreme precautionary measure in relation to Anderson Gustavo Torres ceased, because the necessary compatibility between Criminal Justice and the right to freedom demonstrates that the effectiveness of preventive detention has already achieved its purpose, with the effective carrying out of new police steps, which were pending on 4/20/2023″, wrote Moraes in the decision.
In place of imprisonment, Moraes enacted a series of measures, such as use of electronic anklets, prohibition to leave the Federal District, home collection at night and on weekends and removal from office Federal Police Chief. Moraes also ordered the cancellation of all his pports and the immediate suspension of carrying weapons in Torres’ name.
