After being punished by Facebook, deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP) had his account released by the social network this Tuesday (20). The punishment had been applied on the last July 14th, and would last for 30 days.
The lawmaker was banned from posting and commenting for six days after questioning election polls in a publication, using an image of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, alongside a phrase attributed to him.

With the sanction, the deputy called the Court of Justice of the Federal District (TJDFT) in an attempt to have the account released, but the request was denied. After the repercussion of the case, the social network stated in a note that Eduardo Bolsonaro’s post was improperly removed and has already been restored”.
This was the second suspension of the deputy’s posts in just over a month. In June, he was prevented from posting after publishing a false report by the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU) with data on deaths by Covid.
Attorney Karina Kufa, who represents Eduardo Bolsonaro, said in a statement that she will maintain the lawsuit so that Facebook “repairs the damage caused to the parliamentarian and does not commit abuses of this nature”
