    The provisional release granted to "more than 130 men accused of the terrorist, anti-democratic acts and destruction of public buildings on January 8," was issued by Judge Alexandre de Moraes. 

    The measure involves the surveillance with electronic anklets of those released. Night house arrest, prohibition to use social networks or to drive are some of the restrictions they must comply with.

    In addition, those on provisional release will not be able to leave their cities or the country, as their passports have been cancelled. They are prohibited from communicating with others involved.

    Minister Alexandre de Moraes, of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), ordered this Monday (13) the release of another 130 men denounced for the anti-democratic acts that resulted in the depredation of the headquarters of the Three Powers, on January 8.
