Former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s Stay at Hungarian Embassy: Diplomacy or Evasion?

Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil’s former president, recently spent two nights at the Hungarian embassy in Brasilia after a police operation linked to an investigation into an attempted coup prevented him from leaving the country. According to The New York Times, Bolsonaro stayed at the embassy from February 12 to 14.

However, Bolsonaro’s lawyers deny that he was trying to evade justice. They stated that he stayed at the embassy for “contacts with the authorities of a friendly country.” The lawyers emphasized Bolsonaro’s good relationship with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

In June, Bolsonaro was sentenced to eight years of ineligibility for spreading disinformation about his election defeat. He is also facing several investigations, including one for the forgery of vaccination certificates during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite these legal challenges, Bolsonaro’s stay at the Hungarian embassy was described as a diplomatic rather than an escape attempt.
