Bolsonaro's son summoned to give evidence in corruption case
Brasilia, Jul 3 (Prensa Latina) The Public Prosecution´s Office of Rio de Janeiro summoned Sen. Flavio Bolsonaro, son of President Jair Bolsonaro, and his wife, Fernanda, to give evidence next week as part of an investigation for diversion of public fund.
According to the G1 news portal, Fernanda will testify on July 6 and her husband next day.
Such call was made by the Specialized Action Group to Combat Corruption (GAECC), which was in charge of the investigation from March 2019 until the decision of the third criminal court of the Rio de Janeiro Court.
At that level, the head of the investigation is the prosecutor Eduardo Gussem, who formalized a term of cooperation with GAECC and allowed the group to continue investigating, an action criticized by Flavio Bolsonaro´s defense.
On June 29, the Rio de Janeiro Prosecutor's Office appealed to the Federal Supreme Court (STF) to try to reverse the ruling that gave Flavio Bolsonaro privileged jurisdiction in the trial of the case involving him and his former adviser Fabricio Queiroz.
