President Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) once again called Colonel Carlos Alberto Brilhante Ustra, one of the main symbols of repression during the military dictatorship, a "national hero."

This Thursday (8) president welcomed at the Planalto Palace the widow of the military, Maria Joseita Silva Brilliant Ustra, who he referred to someone with "huge heart."

Ustra was convicted of torture and kidnapping during the military regime (1964-1985).

When asked why he met with Maria Joseita, Bolsonaro said she was the editor of Ustra's book and had plenty of stories to tell about women imprisoned in the dictatorship.
