HeadlineJul 09, 2024

Former far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has been indicted on charges of money laundering and criminal association in connection with undeclared diamonds from Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, Lula has reinstated a special commission to investigate crimes committed during Brazil’s military dictatorship. The commission, established in 1995 to probe disappearances and other human rights abuses committed by the military regime between 1964 and 1985, had been dismantled by Bolsonaro, a former army captain who served during the dictatorship.
