"The MPF (federal public prosecutor's office) issued an opinion to the judiciary in which it states that there are risks to journalists covering President Jair Bolsonaro at the Alvorada Palace, the official residence of the president. The document, signed last week and obtained by UOL this Monday (May 3, 2021), asks that measures be taken based on a technical analysis by the Ministry of Economy's Secretariat of Labor.

The opinion states that 'there are indications' that the measures taken at the site 'are not sufficient to guarantee the safety of journalists and media professionals.'"
