Bolsonaro seeks refuge at Hungarian embassy while passport is confiscated; investigation continues

In October 2022, former Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro was defeated by leftist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in the presidential election. Following his defeat, Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes ordered an investigation into an alleged plot to stage a military coup involving Bolsonaro. As a result, Bolsonaro’s passport was confiscated and he was accused of various charges related to the coup plot.

Despite denying any involvement in the coup plot, Bolsonaro was invited to stay at the Hungarian embassy in Brasilia for two nights last month. The stay was first reported by the New York Times based on security camera footage. The police had seized Bolsonaro’s passport on February 8 and instructed him to explain the purpose of his stay at the embassy to the Supreme Court by a certain deadline.

Bolsonaro’s lawyer claimed that he was there to maintain contact with officials of a friendly country and receive updates on the political horizon of the two nations. However, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who is a nationalist and political ally of Bolsonaro, has been silent on the matter. Orban has been in power for over 14 years and has maintained close relations with Bolsonaro even after leaving office, calling him his “brother” during a visit to Budapest in 2022.

Despite facing legal challenges and possible criminal charges, Bolsonaro remains active in political circles both domestically and internationally. His actions have sparked controversy among Brazilian citizens and international leaders alike, raising questions about democracy, human rights, and international relations.
