We have to get rid of the contamination in our institutions,” Dino said.

“I watch with great curiosity the analysts saying how they (the extreme right) invaded the Congress, the Supreme Court and the Planalto Palace.

They also stormed the United States Capitol.

The phenomenon is the same.

These are strange times.

But God blessed Brazil, because (...) there were no deaths and thanks to the actions of the authorities, more people were arrested”, he said.

"If you have an inferiority complex, I would say without fear of being wrong: the Brazilian response to the coup was qualitatively superior to what was seen in other parts of the world," Dino said.

Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes addressed the more than 1,000 Bolsonaro supporters currently detained at a federal police facility in Brasilia due to the invasion.

“Don't let the terrorists believe that the institutions will falter.

The institutions will sanction all those responsible.

To those who were involved in the acts, in their planning, in their financing, to all those who encouraged by action or omission.

Democracy will prevail,” he said.

“Appeasement is out of cowardice or self-interest.

We have to firmly fight terrorism, anti-democratic people, people who want to stage a coup.

It is not possible to talk to these people in a civilized way, these people are not civilized.

Look at what they did in the Planalto Palace, in Congress, and with much more anger and hatred in the Supreme Court," said Moraes.

They affirm that the agitators will have to pay for the damages

The president of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco, said for his part that the agitators will be personally summoned to pay for the damages.

Glass windows, chairs, carpets, furniture and especially valuable works of art were smashed during the invasion by Bolsonaro supporters.

"In addition to the criminal charges, we will present lawsuits so that these people individually pay the reparation for the damages, with arrest, kidnapping and blocking of assets. It is not fair that the Brazilian people pay the bill for the depredation carried out by criminals," Pacheco said. in his first public speech after the attacks.

Pacheco went on to say: "If the people who committed these crimes on January 8 believed they could do something relevant to Brazil, they did it. In addition to looting the public assets of all Brazilian citizens, what they did was unite the institutions of our More than ever, the Legislative Branch, this Chamber, the Federal Senate, will join the Judicial Branch and the Executive Branch in an indissoluble union that constitutes the Federal Republic of Brazil to make democracy prevail."
