Mongabay: CIPÓ comments on the relationship between environmental offenders and the funding of MT candidates

On the 15th of September, CIPÓ Programme Director Maiara Folly was interviewed for the article Mato Grosso: environmental crime financed half of the current legislature, by the Mongabay portal.

Folly commented that the findings related to the 2018 election show that “it is very important to increase transparency and further investigate parliamentary action in the socio-environmental area of elected candidates who received funding from environmental offenders”.

The article also addresses other findings contained in the strategic report “Money, power and laws: campaign financing for environmental offenders in the Legal Amazon and legislative proposals in the National Congress”, by CIPÓ in partnership with the data intelligence studio Lagom Data.
