Bolsonarist terrorist that tried (and failed) to explode bomb planted on fuel truck close to Brasilia’s airport used explosives from wildcat gold mining

The Bolsonaro supporter who tried to explode a homemade bomb in the surroundings of Brasilia’s airport on December 24th used explosives from wildcat gold digging and other mining operations in the Amazon state of Pará.  The 54-year old suspect is called George Washington De Oliveira Sousa and he traveled from Para to join the extremists camping in front of the Military Headquarters in Brasilia. In a statement to the police, he admitted the political motivation behind the failed terrorist attack. According to the Civil Police from Brasilia, the suspect is registered as a weapon holder (Caçador, Atirador e Colecionador – CAC, in Portuguese).

The news portal De Olho Nos Ruralistas raised suspicions that agribusiness stakeholders are behind extreme bolsonarists such as Sousa –  who was camped in Brasilia since November claiming for a military coup to prevent Lula from becoming president. The same news portal also revealed that George’s declared address is the same of the transport company Transpal, which has permits to carry hazardous materials and has been caught with illegal timber in the past.
