The Saturday (9) edition of Journal of Record brought a special report on the financing of the left in South America by drug trafficking. Without any documentation, Bishop Edir Macedo’s station supports all of its investigation in the testimony of Cristina Seguí, a former Spanish stewardess, who became a celebrity on social networks with an anti-pandemic, anti-communist and anti-feminist discourse.
Criticized in your country for spreading fake news, Seguí was affiliated with Vox, Spain’s far-right party, which maintains a close relationship with President Jair Bolsonaro (no party), through deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP), son of the president.

In your personal profile on Twitter, with 190,000 followers, Seguí retweets messages calling former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva the “greatest thief in the history of Brazil”. During the covid-19 pandemic, the Spaniard saw her fame grow, defending theses against vaccination and minimizing the effects of the disease.
This Monday (11), when confronted by users of the social network about her accusations without evidence, she said: “I’m hoping that a judge will force me to show the documentation of the criminal troupe of the Foro de São Paulo”, wrote Seguí, in your personal account. In the Record article, the former stewardess is presented as a “journalist specializing in Ibero-American politics.”
Seguí’s theory begins with the September 18 arrest of Venezuelan General Hugo Carvajal, who was head of Venezuela’s intelligence services during the government of former president Hugo Chávez. The military is accused by the US of having a relationship with drug trafficking and of having negotiated drug trafficking with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).

According to Seguí, Carvajal would have come to Brazil in a private plane and had plastic surgery, “supported by politicians and Lulist personalities from the PT”. However, the article does not indicate on what date he entered the national territory, who would have lent or leased the aircraft and, much less, who would be the people linked to the Brazilian party who supported Carvajal within the country.
Once again without proof, Record’s journalism informs its audience that Lula and former president Dilma Rousseff would benefit from the drug trafficking scheme that funds the left on the continent. Finally, Seguí affirms that “everyone in the São Paulo Forum lives off of arms trafficking, human trafficking and drug trafficking”. However, Edir Macedo’s station refused to include in the report the response sent by Lula’s advisors.
In response to UOL, Record stated that Lula’s note “was generic”. About the report, the Lula Institute published: “Former President Lula was investigated, had all his secrets broken and no irregularities were found. He won in court all the false accusations made against him. Lula has no convictions and has full political rights.”
