Son of Sérgio Cabral is arrested in operation in Rio de Janeiro –

José Eduardo Neves Cabral, son of former governor Sérgio Cabral, was arrested on the morning of this Wednesday, 23rd, during an operation by the Federal police (FEDERAL POLICE). The action was filed against “an armed and transnational criminal organization specialized in the illegal trade of cigarettes”.

In all, the agents serve 27 arrest warrants and 50 search and seizure warrants in Rio de Janeiro and Baixada Fluminense. Among the targets are also PMs, firefighters and a federal police officer.

José Eduardo Cabral is 26 years old and is the son of the former governor and his first wife, Suzana. He is the brother of former deputy Marco Antônio Cabral, who was unable to be re-elected.

The PF claims that the investigated criminal group is responsible for causing damage to the Union of around R$ 2 billion.

The task force is supported by Homeland Security Investigations, the United States Agency for Homeland Security Investigations.

The 3rd Federal Criminal Court of Rio de Janeiro also determined the blocking, kidnapping and seizure of assets, in the amount of R$ 300 million.

According to the investigation, which began in 2020, since 2019 “the criminal group has repeatedly, with falsification or not issuing invoices, deposited, transported and sold cigarettes resulting from crime in territories dominated by other criminal organizations, such as factions and militias”.

“Consequently, it laundered funds obtained illegally and remitted high amounts abroad in an irregular manner”, says the PF.
