THE ARREST OF EDUCARDO CUNHA

The former president of the Chamber of deputies, Eduardo Cunha, is arrested in Brasília. The decision is based on the accusation that the congressman received bribe money in a contract for oil exploration in Africa and used accounts in Switzerland for money laundering. On the networks, DAPP points out that the mentions to Cunha were strengthened by the hashtags #DelataCunha (“delate, Cunha”) and #CunhaNaCadeia (Cunha in jail) and by the meme of the “lumberjack of the Federal Police”.
