The Brazilian Justice determined that Bolsonaro did not violate the precautionary measures during his stay at the Hungarian Embassy

The Supreme Court of Justice of Brazil defined this Wednesday that the stay of former President Jair Bolsonaro in the Hungarian Embassy in the country did not result in a violation of the precautionary measures that were imposed on him.

The news was announced by Judge Alexandre de Moraes who, after evaluating the facts, concluded that diplomatic headquarters are not foreign territory, so it cannot be considered that the former President broke the court order that prevents him from leaving Brazil.

Bolsonaro is being investigated by the authorities for attempting to carry out a coup d’état through the annulment of the results of the 2022 elections, in which he was defeated by Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. In fact, various meetings with commanders of the Armed Forces were being analyzed shortly before that February, when he handed over command.

He also has an open case for falsifying vaccination certificates against Covid-19, which he obtained to be able to travel abroad during the pandemic despite campaigning against inoculation and never showing himself immunized against the virus. Meanwhile, he is accused of taking valuable gifts from Arab countries, which he avoided handing over at the end of his mandate.

In the framework of the first of these cases, the Police ordered Bolsonaro on February 8 to hand over his passport and prevented him from leaving the country. The decision was appealed by the defense and rejected by the Prosecutor’s Office, which considered it “absolutely premature to withdraw the imposed restriction” given the “danger” that his travel imposes “for an eventual application of the criminal law.”

A few days after giving the document, the former president went to the Hungarian Embassy in Brazil, where he stayed as a “guest” between February 12 and 14. The episode was revealed by The New York Times, which discovered closed-circuit television images that showed him arriving at the headquarters, accompanied by other photos that prove that the car that took him there was parked nearby on that date.

Then, the media considered it “an apparent attempt to obtain asylum” since if the Justice had ordered his arrest, the Police agents would not have been able to enter because it was a building outside the jurisdiction of the national authorities. For its part, the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned Ambassador Miklós Halmai to explain the matter.

The defense of the far-right, however, denied this version and assured that he came in order to “maintain contacts with authorities of the friendly country” and that “any other interpretation that goes beyond the information transmitted here constitutes an obvious work of fiction. alien to the reality of the facts and is, in practice, just another list of fake news.”

Bolsonaro and Viktor Orbán, Hungarian Prime Minister, are former allies and have shared public praise in the past. Both also shared the inauguration of the Argentine president, Javier Milei, at the end of last year, where they did not miss the opportunity to be close.
