For the riot at Brazil’s Congress, Brasilia, more than 1,200 people have been legally detained and are facing charges.

Suspects who have been formally apprehended have five days to face charges.

Following the violence, more than 1,500 persons were detained in total.

A sizable security force deployment in Brazil’s capital has been spurred by worries about probable more protests.

The majority of individuals arrested during the violence were taken to the force’s academy in Brasilia, according to Brazilian Federal Police sources, while others have been transferred to other facilities.

The authorities have issued a warning that some of the freed inmates may ultimately be taken into custody as part of the ongoing probe.

They also raised fear that more protests would be organized by ardent Jair Bolsonaro supporters in Brazil.

Pro-Bolsonaro organizations have reportedly been asking for “mega” protests to take place in all of the state capitals of Brazil, according to a memo from federal prosecutors obtained by the reupdated media outlet.

The government “intervention” that has seen military personnel sent to handle police and security responsibilities in Brasilia was approved by Brazilian lawmakers on Tuesday.

Numerous members of Brazil’s Force National were stationed close to the Congress and presidential palace on Wednesday morning.

Many locals who claim they are fearful of another riot like the one that occurred on January 8 have approved of their deployment.

“This is all necessary, so that we get back to work,” said Brasília resident Anderson Rodrigues. “When they attacked [the Congress and presidential palace] I felt as if I couldn’t do anything about it.”

“They should charge everyone involved [in the riot] with a crime,” he added. “Not just the people who were here, but the people who financed it as well.”
