Brazilian Deputy Carla Zambelli and Hacker Walter Delgatti Accused of Attacking Judiciary

The Brazilian Federal Prosecutor's Office (PGR) has accused federal deputy Carla Zambelli and hacker Walter Delgatti Neto of crimes related to the invasion of the National Council of Justice's (CNJ) computer system and the creation of false arrest warrants and release orders. The PGR found a false arrest warrant against Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes on Delgatti's computer, which was later accessed by Zambelli.

According to a complaint filed by the PGR, Delgatti illegally accessed the Unified Electronic Execution System (SEEU) and inserted a fake release warrant to free Sandro Silva Rabelo, also known as 'Sandro Louco', a prisoner linked to the criminal faction Comando Vermelho who was sentenced to over 200 years in prison for crimes including murder, robbery, and criminal organization. The Mato Grosso Court of Justice confirmed that Sandro Louco remains imprisoned, but did not specify if the fake release warrant was actually entered into the system or when it was detected as fraudulent.

The PGR also revealed the existence of false release warrants for three other prisoners in the Federal District, which Delgatti allegedly inserted into the SEEU. The release warrants were generated through an invasion of the CNJ system, and although they were produced within the competent system, the content was false as there was no prior regular internal procedure or the real signature of the competent authority.

Why this matters: The accusations against a sitting federal deputy and a hacker for attacking the judiciary system and attempting to illegally release a high-profile criminal raise serious concerns about the security and integrity of Brazil's legal institutions. The case highlights the potential vulnerabilities in the electronic systems used by the judiciary and the need for robust safeguards against unauthorized access and manipulation.

The accusations have led to calls for Zambelli to lose her parliamentary mandate and face imprisonment if the allegations are confirmed. The case is expected to have significant political and legal ramifications, as it involves a member of the National Congress and an attack on the judiciary branch. The PGR's investigation is ongoing, and further details are likely to emerge as the case progresses through the legal system.
