Sergio Moro returns to the spotlight as he is targeted by sectors of the judiciary and the government itself. In an interview with ISTOÉ, he maintains his usual serenity, saying that he does not act with partisan bias and guarantees focus on his work leading the Ministry of Justice.

Sergio Moro celebrated 47 years on August 1st, but not everything is flowers and parties in the life of the Minister of Justice and Public Security. Today, as when he was leading Operation Car Wash, he is once again in the spotlight. He takes the leading role. But unlike the time when he became Jair Bolsonaro's main minister, Moro experiences one of the most delicate moments of his career. He is the preferred target of groups of the judiciary - more exactly, the Supreme Court, for having contradicted powerful and unmistakable interests, and victim of friendly fire even within the Planalto Palace, for reasons that we can't even begin to image. By the end of the week, the Republic seemed to revolve around him.

He was criticized for stating that men resorted to violence against women because they were intimidated by them, made headlines in all websites by forwarding a document to Minister Luiz Fux, in which he repeated what he said in an exclusive interview with ISTOÉ, saying that there was never any determination to destroy the material harvested with the hackers arrested by the Federal Police, and was even admonished by the President himself, when discussing the anti-crime bill in Congress. "Moro comes from a background where he could decide with a pen in his hand. He comes from justice, but he has no power, he can't judge anyone anymore. I understand the anguish of wanting the project to go ahead, but Brazil can't stop," he said. The man is himself and his circumstances, said Spanish philosopher Ortega y Gasset. As much as he tries to maintain his usual phlegm, it is the circumstances that make Sergio Moro the character of the week. For good and for bad.
