Bolsonaro’s Controversial Stay at Hungarian Embassy: A Look into the Political Aftershocks

Former Brazilian president Bolsonaro sought shelter at Hungarian embassy for two nights

Recently, former Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro spent two nights at the Hungarian embassy in Brasilia. The New York Times reported that he sought refuge there due to a federal investigation into an “attempted coup” that had led to him being banned from leaving the country. However, his lawyers deny that he was trying to evade justice and claim that he stayed there for “contacts with the authorities of a friendly country.”

In June, Bolsonaro was given an eight-year ban from holding public office for spreading false information about his election defeat. He is also facing other investigations, including one for allegedly falsifying vaccination certificates during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite these challenges, Bolsonaro maintains a good relationship with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Bolsonaro’s stay at the Hungarian embassy has sparked controversy and speculation about his future plans. Some have suggested that he may be seeking asylum or trying to find a way to leave Brazil without facing legal consequences. Others have questioned why Bolsonaro would choose to stay in Hungary, which has been criticized for its authoritarian government and human rights abuses.

Regardless of what happens next, it’s clear that Bolsonaro’s actions have had far-reaching consequences both domestically and internationally. His refusal to accept his election defeat and his attacks on democratic institutions have undermined Brazil’s democracy and set a dangerous precedent for other countries around the world.
