What is investigation?

Operation Golden Disk, which launched this morning, aims to execute two arrest warrants and six search and seizure warrants, issued by the Fourth Federal Court in Roraima.

The kidnapping of more than R$130 million from suspects has also been identified.

The police investigation indicates that the scheme aims to “wash” cassiterite that has been illegally removed from Yanomami indigenous lands. According to the investigation, the ore will be declared to have originated from a regular mine on the Tapajós River, in Itaituba, Pará, and it will presumably be transported to Roraima for treatment.

However, investigations indicate that this dynamic will only happen on paper, as the crude will originate from the state of Roraima itself.

Financial transactions were identified that would link the entire production chain of the scheme, with aircraft pilots, gas stations, and warehouses of mining machinery and equipment and oranges to cover up the fraudulent transactions.

“The scheme would also include a national music businessman, who would be one of those responsible for the financial core of the crimes, as well as a singer who would have received at least R$1 million from a mining company under investigation,” he added. Says note from PF.
