Sergio Moro’s Personal Information

Sergio Fernando Moro is a Brazilian jurist, former federal judge, college professor, and politician.

In 2015 he gained national attention as one of the lead judges in Operation Car Wash, a criminal investigation into a high-profile corruption and bribery scandal involving government officials and business executives.

Moro was also Minister of Justice and Public Security under the presidency of Jair Bolsonaro from 2019 to 2020.

On 29 October 2018, days after the 2018 election President-elect Jair Bolsonaro nominated Moro to be Minister of Justice and Public Security.

On 1 November, Moro accepted the job after personally meeting with Bolsonaro.

His appointment to Bolsonaro’s cabinet and the way he had previously conducted Operation Car Wash drew praise from his peers and a significant portion of the Brazilian society, but also significant criticism was voiced, especially after revelations of alleged partiality and judicial misconduct on his part, published by the American investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald, during the Car Wash investigations.

Moro left the government in April 2020, mentioning the President’s undue interference in the affairs of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.

Then in 2020, he worked with the firm Alvarez and Marsal for almost one year.

Since his retirement from public service, leaked messages exchanged between then-judge Moro and Brazilian prosecutors resulted in widespread questioning of his impartiality during the Operation Car Wash hearings: Moro has publicly disputed these allegations.

On March 9, 2021, the habeas corpus trial was resumed in the Supreme Federal Court that questioned his impartiality, with two judges, Gilmar Mendes and Ricardo Lewandowski, voting that Moro was indeed biased, including the vote of these two last for the payment of a US$40,000 fine and the court costs of the lawsuit filed against Lula.

Later, in 2022, the United Nations Committee agreed with the STF that Sergio Moro was biased in all cases against Lula.

Moro was born in Maringa, the son of Odete Starke Moro and Dalton Aureo Moro, a former professor of photography at the State University of Maringa, who died in 2005.

His elder sibling, Cesar Fernando Moro, owns a technology company.

His family is of Italian, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Polish descent.

His Italian forebears were from Veneto; his great grandparents came from Breganze and Sandrigo in the Province of Vicenza.

Moro’s family moved to Ponta Grossa when Sergio and César were children.

He identifies as being a Roman Catholic.

Moro is married to Rosângela Wolff de Quadros, a lawyer and current legal solicitor of the National Association of Parents and Friends of Exceptional Children.

They live in Curitiba and have a couple of school-age children.

In addition to his professional career, little is known about his personal life.

Aloe magazine described him as someone with a reserved lifestyle and simple habits.

Moro got a law degree from the State University of Maringa in 1995.

During his studies, he interned in a law firm for two years, being described as a sensational person by the lawyer who hired him.

He attended a summer course at Harvard Law School in 1998, including studies on money laundering promoted by the US Department of State.

He received his master’s degree in 2000 from the Federal University of Parana with the dissertation Development and Judicial Enforcement of Constitutional Norms, guided by Professor Clemerson Merlin Cleve.

In 2002, he completed a Ph.D. in State Law at the same institution with the thesis Constitutional Jurisdiction as Democracy, guided by Marcal Justen Filho.

In 2007, he participated in the International Visitor Leadership Program in which he visited U.S. agencies and institutions responsible for preventing and combating money laundering.

In 1996, Moro started teaching law graduates at his alma mater, the Federal University of Parana.

This very same year, he became a federal judge in Porto Alegre, before moving to Joinville, Santa Catarina, in 1999.

Between 2003 and 2007, Moro worked on a case involving the public bank Banestado.

The investigation resulted in the arrest of nearly 200 people for tax evasion and money laundering.

In 2012, he worked with Rosa Weber, a minister of the Brazilian Supreme Court, in the Mensalao scandal.

Weber called him because of his experience with cases involving financial crimes, more specifically money laundering.

After leaving the judiciary and the Bolsonaro government, his first case as a lawyer, in 2020, favored controversial Israeli businessman Beny Steinmetz, in a dispute against mining company Vale S.A.

In the same year, Moro was hired as a partner by the consultancy Alvarez & Marsal, judicial administrator of the recovery process of the Odebrecht Group the company targeted by then judge Moro during Lava Jato.

Moro worked for Alvarez & Marsal for almost one year and was paid approximately 10 million dollars.

In 2014, while working in Curitiba, Sergio Moro became one of the head judges in Operation Car Wash, a massive criminal investigation that started as a money laundering case and evolved into a huge corruption scandal crackdown, involving bribery and misappropriation of public funds by political authorities.

The investigation was modeled after Mani pulite in Italy. Corruption scandals in Brazil usually take a long time to be investigated and the legal processes tend to stagnate.

However, at an unusual speed, Moro authorized further investigations, detentions, and interrogations of suspects.

By late 2017, at least 120 sentences were carried and 175 people were sent to jail.

Despite some criticism from fellow jurists for being a media darling, Moro enjoyed high popularity with the Brazilian people and became one of the main faces in the fight against corruption in the country.

Despite criticisms regarding the high speed with which he imposed sentences in such a complex case, his actions were backed by the Brazilian Supreme Court, and most of his sentences and decisions were upheld in higher courts.

By late 2016, Moro had sent 28 people to jail on charges of corruption, with four of them having their sentences reduced and another four being acquitted by higher courts.

Overall, in Operation Car Wash, 71% of the sentences given by Moro were upheld by the Brazilian Regional Federal Courts.

However, in 2021, due to Moro’s conviction for partiality, famous Lava Jato defendants reaped the fruits of the decisions of the Federal Supreme Court that relaxed the jurisprudence that had taken politicians, businessmen, and bribery operators to jail.

The number of whistleblower petitions, initial investigations, inquiry requests, etc. dropped from 257 to 200.

Of the 31 inquiries, 3 were filed in 2021, 7 complaints await judgment and no convictions.

In 2017, Moro sentenced former Brazilian president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, to 9 and a half years in jail, on the charges of money laundering and passive corruption.

Lula was considered the frontrunner for the 2018 presidential election.

The sentencing caused an uproar in Brazil, with many widely supporting and saluting the judge for his decision, while others claimed he was getting ahead of himself.

The decision was later overturned by the Supreme Court of Brazil in 2021, which judged Moro for having acted with partiality.

The April 2022 decision of Lula’s 2016 petition was ratified and expanded by the UN human rights committee.

Additionally, in a unanimous decision in April, the Regional Federal Court (TRF) ruled that Lula’s lawyers be compensated for the telephone interception and illegal secrecy lifting determined by Moro in 2016 As a Lava Jato judge, Moro repeatedly stated that there is no possibility of a political career.

However, he started his political career in November 2018, when he accepted the invitation of President Jair Bolsonaro to be the head of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.

He joined the political party Podemos (PODE) on November 10, 2021, and confirmed that he was building his government project, as a pre-candidate for the Brazilian presidency.

Moro had emerged as a third-way candidate against poll-leading former president Lula on the left and extreme-right Bolsonaro.

However, after leaving the Podemos party, Moro removed himself from the run for the presidency.

His popularity has faded, due to his controversial decision to join the Bolsonaro cabinet, and to political bias and judicial overreach that tainted the legacy of the Car Wash investigation.

In many of his encounters with the media and further interviews, Sergio Moro described himself as apolitical and said he had no interest in joining the political world.

However, right after the 2018 elections, rumors started to circulate that the president-elect, Jair Bolsonaro, was considering nominating Moro to head of the Ministry of Justice.

Despite claiming he was unaware of such a plan, it was later revealed that Moro was contacted by Paulo Guedes, an incoming member of Bolsonaro’s administration, during Bolsonaro’s election campaign.

Exactly four days after the election, on 1 November 2018, Moro met with Bolsonaro and it was announced that he would become a minister in Bolsonaro’s administration.

His nomination was well received by fellow magistrates across the country, but opponents of Bolsonaro and some people in the press criticized the decision on the grounds of conflict of interest, claiming that Moro’s sentencing of former president Luis Inacio Lula da Silva greatly benefited Bolsonaro’s bid for the presidency.

On 12 May 2019, president Bolsonaro publicly expressed the intention of nominating Moro to the Supreme Federal Court, replacing Justice Celso de Mello, who would retire in 2020.

However, on 1 October 2020, he nominated Kassio Nunes Marques.

During his short 15 months tenure as Minister of Justice and Public Security, Moro focused on fighting organized crime, border security, and taking new anti-corruption measures, with different degrees of success.

Crime fell sharply across the board in most of the country in 2019, but if that was due to any government action or not remains unknown.

However, as 2020 came along, the relationship between Moro and Bolsonaro deteriorated due to a variety of factors. First, Moro started to complain about the president’s interference in his ministry.

According to the former judge, during talks about him assuming the Ministry of Justice, Bolsonaro made a promise to Moro that he would have the independence to run his ministry the way he saw fit, including the appointment of personnel, especially in the Federal Police.

However, that changed over time and the president started to interfere in investigations and in the way Moro was running the ministry.

On top of that, Moro also criticized Bolsonaro’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On 24 April 2020, after an unjustified discharge of Federal Police’s Director-General Mauricio Valeixo by president Bolsonaro, Moro decided to announce that he would leave the Ministry while denouncing the president’s intention to meddle in investigations.

He then started a career as a lawyer and attorney.
