Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro requested a change within the federal police in the state of Rio de Janeiro to prevent his family members from being “injured” in the investigation against some of their family members and friends.
This was assured by several local media, such as the O Globo newspaper, citing several sources that had access to the records of a meeting of the Council of Ministers on April 22nd, where Bolsonaro said he needed to “know things” the Rio police, because the investigation that is being carried out “cannot harm my family. “
The Rio de Janeiro police launched an investigation months ago to find out whether one of the president’s sons, Senator Flávio Bolsonaro, committed a money laundering crime when he held the position of deputy in that state’s legislative assembly in 2003-2003 in 2019 .
These images, waiting for the Supreme Court to publish them in the next few hours, were analyzed on Tuesday by prosecutors to investigate the alleged interference that Bolsonaro would have committed within the security forces to benefit their own interests.
