Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said he had received information that the manifesto of commercial entities, articulated by Fiesp, had undergone changes to raise the tone and attack the federal government at the suggestion of a person linked to the Brazilian Federation of Banks (Febraban). The revelation was made this Monday (30), during a meeting between Guedes and the President of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (DEM-MG). The information is from O Globo.
According to the publication, the text was originally intended to be written as a letter in defense of democracy. Chamber Speaker Arthur Lira (PP-AL) said he spoke with Paulo Skaf, president of the São Paulo Federation of Industries (Fiesp), who postponed the publication of the manifesto. Caixa and Banco do Brasil threatened to leave Febraban if the entity joined the movement.
