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

In October 2022, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was defeated by leftist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in the country’s presidential election. Following his loss, Bolsonaro faced an investigation into an alleged plot to stage a military coup. As a result, Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes ordered the confiscation of his passport.

The former president’s stay at the Hungarian embassy in Brasilia for two nights in February 2023 was first reported by The New York Times based on security camera footage. The police had accused Bolsonaro of various charges related to the coup plot and instructed him to explain the purpose of his stay at the embassy to the Supreme Court by a certain deadline.

According to Bolsonaro’s lawyer, he was there to maintain contact with officials of a friendly country and receive updates on the political horizon of both nations. However, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has remained silent on the matter despite being a political ally of Bolsonaro and being in power for over 14 years.

Despite facing legal challenges and possible criminal charges, Bolsonaro remains active in political circles both domestically and internationally. He has continued to maintain close relations with Orban even after leaving office, calling him his “brother” during a visit to Budapest in 2022.
