This is a time of much reflection. For the first time after the surgery and after the visit to the doctor who accompanies me, I feel already in good condition. I could resume my activities, but the only thing that still holds me back is the weight of the medicine I'm taking. Next week I will be free of this episode that is already entering the book of stories of the past. Today my reflection is to find out the reason why people have decided to think that I am "shit", that they can kick me or commit moral abuse and of power, as happened when I was fired from a television at the time when was celebrated my birthday, in the newsroom where we worked. No providence against the man who committed moral abuse was taken. Then other kinds of abuse happened. One day someone will explain it to me. First, however, I demand respect.

Blog - What changes after everything that happened in your life, Victor Hannover?

Victor Hannover - Everything. It changes everything. I was living hell before that, which culminated in my illness and surgery. It changes by the simple fact that I am a responsible, hard-working, and friendly guy and the people are charging for perfection. I will never accept this absurdity any more. How can anyone want me to be perfect? I'm not. The men have a jewel in their hands and they do not know how to treat.

Blog - How would this action be beyond limits?

Victor Hannover - It's something that will make me react with diplomacy. I do not go out for fun, I do not go around doing bad things. I stay at home, I love manipulating photographs, creating magazine covers, and that's my life when I'm not at work. So if anybody is living in house, without be problem, without leaving home, without overturning cars or getting into trouble, as I did in the past, if this live no is a happiness and a satisfaction for my boss and others persons, then it no think at a simply man. No, the people do not want that I live as an ordinary human being. They want my live as a saint, which I will never be. I have defects and we all have. Now putting pressure on the guy who lives in peace, who does not cause embarrassment and who unties every moment big situations, is an act that, in addition to being inhuman, is unfair.


Blog - Where do you think this is born ?

Victor Hannover - The pressure begins with the fact that I stand out a lot in my profession, so come envy and other things. You imagine that I was fired from Rede Globo, and then the guys from Extra newspaper, from Globo's RJ, had to turn to me for a interview with a key Uruguayan character at the time, at a crime of high repercussion. I saved everything, the screen prints of the guys from Extra asking me for the contacts. If I were a bad character, I would have told the reporter: "You'll get the information from the boss who fired me !" "But I'm not like that. I asked for authorization from the Uruguayan and I passed the contact to the guys. The other day a journalist my friend from G1, from Globo, called me asking for the contact of a key police interviewee, in another complex case. This time I did not pass the information, because the interviewee did not authorize me. And my sources I respect a lot. I will not mention the names of the reporters and producers of Sistema Globo, who are looking for me, because there is no need, but I have the prints here and whenever I can help, I will help.

Blog - And this issue of working hours, this whole thing?

Victor Hannover - Actually, I'm a "Full Time" reporter. My work schedule is to stay at home three in the morning, awake, to do an exclusive interview with Skype, needing to speak with the person interviewed before she leaves for work, because if it is in the case of an interviewee who is in Europe, the hour is different. It's night here, it's already dawn in Europe. So I'm tired of doing that and it's not always recognized. I have two examples. The first is that I was the only reporter in Brazil to get an interview with the woman who found a Brazilian student dead in Barcelona and the other example is that I spent two nights on the internet to get images of the arrival of the body in the Italy and the funerals of an Italian woman who was killed in Ceará. All this happened when it was hight night here and in Europe it was morning. As I record with my equipment, I stay connected, at home, with open my eye. The other day, the television airs all the exclusive material and everyone thinks it's cute, but no one imagines that there was a guy on duty to do that. So the great reporter is one who does not boil down to a day's work. I'm a reporter always. Then sometimes the guy looks and says, this guy stays here without a work. And it's interesting because recently before leaving on leave, I discovered a fire in Pacatuba town in Brazil and an earthquake in Orós town. The staff thought for a instant it was a joke, then the Fire Department confirmed everything and the material opened the newspaper. I do journalism like that. That's why I say. I am not perfect, but I am a professional of the highest category and I demand respect for this reason. I'm not a "small crazy", I'm a reporter and if not respected, I go to my way. I have a market. There is no market for the weak reporter, but for the Class A reporter, you have. I guarantee that affection is the least I can receive for everything I've gone through and everything I represent.
I will continue to strive for professional respectability, in all companies, in whatever country. I've been too disrespected by different people. Today if the attitude does not change, I will put my viola in the bag and bye bye. After overcoming chemical addiction and now cancer, the joke is definitely to finish.


Blog - How did justice interest in your information come about?

Victor Hannover - That's what I'm telling you about here. I did an interview on a Sunday night. I was off duty and discovered the contact of a Dutch, eyewitness of a crime against a European trader here in Fortaleza. A friend of mine who lives in Berlin knew the guy and made the bridge, anyway, I talked to the guy on Sunday night, got an extra team, and interviewed the guy. The next day, in TV Diário was "Ten" police programs and the unpublished matter, the ours, exclusive was not to air in any telenews. In fact it was aired a minute of the matter in a newspaper in the morning, which was extinguished, Diário da Manhã. It was enough for the prosecutor who was accompanying the case to look for me. She wanted to know where the Dutchman was. Of course I did not know. I did the interview with the guy Sunday night and the guy told me that he was going to go traveling on the beaches, on vacation. I did not even ask where he was going. What I wanted was the interview. Then I was able to locate the Dutchman through a social network and said that justice was wanting to talk to him. I informed him that I had been summoned to tell him where he was, but I did not know, and I could only pass the information with his permission.
He then told me that he would seek justice, as he had an interest in testifying in the case and so he did.
When I arrived at the forum to make my work about of the testimony, the prosecutor called me in a room to complain, saying that it was absurd to have information and not to pass it on. My answer was only true. I no longer knew the whereabouts of the man. How could I know? I did a interview and then I will not monitor the life of the interviewee. Each one takes care of his life. And in so doing, I showed the prosecutor that I did not ignore the request. I just went true.
The other day the TV newspapers published the story twenty times. Police journalism is something peculiar. A dead man lying on the ground, murdered, has a guaranteed headline. Already an investigative matter is in the trash and sometimes is not used. And that's the way it is, it's not on TV that I work. I'm not here burning my colleagues. I'm telling the truth. Police journalism, in whatever vehicle it is, loves a deceased person. And for me this action is very sad.
