    Moro Failed to Report Paid Lecture in 2016
    Judges have 30 days to report their participation in the events and must record the date, subject, place and entity that organized it
    Moro omitted a paid lecture he gave in September 2016 while reporting on his activities when he was the judge responsible for the actions of Operation Lava Jato in Curitiba.
    The Paraná Federal court informed Folha that Moro stated that it had participated in 16 external events in 2016, including nine lectures, three homages and two hearings in the National Congress.

    But the list of events does not include a talk mentioned in a message he sent to attorney Deltan Dallagnol through the Telegram app in 2017, which is part of the package obtained by The Intercept.
    A resolution passed by the National Council of Justice in June 2016 made it mandatory for judges to record information about lectures and other events classified as “teaching activities.”
    A person who participated in the organization of the event told Folha that Moro received a fee between R $ 10,000 and R $ 15,000. According to the court's press office, Moro did not declare any compensation for the lectures she informed the TRF-4 in 2016.
    In response to Folha, Moro stated that the omission of the lecture in his accountability may have been due to “pure lapse” and said that he donated part of the fee to the charity.

    I wonder how this New Law - “Eat less, poop every other day” - is going to be enforced.

    Maybe for the president, it is OK to use toilet-paper on alternate days due to his constipation.

    But will the faithful followers be able to obey this law?

    Why not sell Re-Usable Toilet-Papers to them?
