A Corte Especial do Superior Tribunal de Justiça recebeu denúncia contra o governador de Minas Gerais, Fernando Pimentel (PT), nesta quarta-feira (6/12).

Apesar da decisão, Pimentel não será afastado do cargo de governador já que, por enquanto, não há elementos que justifiquem essa providência.

A denúncia partiu da operação Acrônimo, A operação Acrônimo, deflagrada em 2015, investiga um esquema de tráfico de influência para liberação de empréstimos do BNDES (Banco Nacional do Desenvolvimento) e um esquema de lavagem de dinheiro em campanhas eleitorais, envolvendo gráficas e agências de comunicação. O R7 tenta contato com os envolvidos. Tais informações seriam novas e "alteram profundamente" os rumos das investigações, afirmou a defesa.

Na mesma denúncia, o empresário Marcelo Odebrecht, ex-presidente da construtora, foi denunciado por corrupção ativa.

A empreiteira teria sido beneficiada na obtenção de seguros de créditos junto ao BNDES para obras na Argentina e em Moçambique, nos valores de US$ 1,5 bilhão e US$ 180 milhões, respectivamente. Naquela época, ele era ministro e chefiava o Ministério do Desenvolvimento, Indústria e Comércio Exterior (MDIC) e a Câmara de Comércio Exterior (Camex).

Após o voto-vista do ministro Og Fernandes, no mesmo sentido do voto dado pelo relator da ação, ministro Herman Benjamim, a Corte Especial, de forma unânime, rejeitou todas as preliminares apresentadas pela defesa de Pimentel e dos demais denunciados.

João Nogueira, diretor da construtora.

Para o advogado do governador, Eugênio Pacelli, as investigações conduzidas pela Polícia Federal (PF) na Operação Acrônimo demonstram clara motivação política. Tudo se tratava e se tratou de diligência movida por interesses políticos [.] O alvo sempre foi Fernando Pimentel. "Está muito claro o vício originário da Operação Acrônimo".

Segundo Herman Benjamin, os fatos descritos na denúncia são anteriores à posse de Pimentel no comando do governo mineiro e, além disso, não há notícia de que ele tenha provocado obstrução à Justiça.
