“We cannot definitively destroy the fragile democracy that remains for us. It’s necessary that everybody maintains their responsibility and respect the Constitution and the presumption of innocence. It’s unacceptable that Globo insists on repeating the past and incite a coup,“ said former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff in response to Villas-Boas comments.
Villas Boas did not elaborate. Calls to the army’s press office were not answered. Army representatives confirmed to Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo that the tweets were written by the general.
