Journalist threatened by politician's brother
The journalist was writing a story about the sudden enrichment of the Queiroz family. Ailton's infamy is the result of a 2008 report that he authored about the wiretaps on the Supreme Court of Brazil. When Dantas contacted him, Ailton reacted with anger to the phone call. "I won't allow anyone snooping into my life," he is said to have told the journalist. "You think you're dealing with some moron? You take care of yourself."
The journalist has been in contact with the police about the threats and gave the officers a copy of the conversation.
