The Rio de Janeiro court decided to annul the General Assembly of the Brazilian Football Confederation, which changed the voting method for the presidency of the entity, and thus also the elections that put Rogerio Capoclo in power, in April 2018. The decision was made by Judge Mario Cunha Olento Filho, of the second civil court in Barra da Tijuca of the Court of Justice of Rio de Janeiro, first instance. The Brazilian Football Confederation will call for a return.
The judge also determined that the union is now subject to interference. Rodolfo Landim, President flamingoand Reinaldo Carneiro Bastos, president of the Sao Paulo Football Federation, to lead the Brazilian Confederation for 30 days.
During this period, they will have to organize new elections for the presidency of the entity and they will not be able to run for office. In the words of Mario Kona Olento Filho, Landim was chosen to be president of the “expressive fan club”.
According to the decision, Landim and Reinaldo Carneiro Bastos each have five days to answer whether they accept being “interfering”, which has yet to happen – the decision came shortly after 3pm on Monday.
According to the report of the ESPN.com.brCBF was informed of the decision around 15:20. The parties involved in the process considered the decision “fragile”, and the union is confident that it will be able to reverse the situation the second time around.
One of the points that the organization must support in particular is the appointment of Landim, which is in violation of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) law, which prevents the club’s president from simultaneously assuming leadership of the highest authority in Brazilian football.
The decision follows a request from the Public Prosecution Office, which did not specifically question Caboclo’s election, but rather to change the rules approved at the Brazilian Football Confederation’s General Assembly in 2017, when the vote weights in the elections were changed.
In addition to Kabuclo, who was already temporarily removed from office by a decision of the CBF Ethics Committee, the decision of the Rio judge also removes the eight elected vice presidents from the federation – according to the statute of the entity, the largest holds the position.
Capoclo has been removed from the leadership of Brazilian football after being accused by a CBF employee of moral and sexual harassment والج
