Even though Covaxin purchase is under investigation by the Office of the Comptroller General of the Union, the representative of the General Prosecutor’s Office in Brasilia Luciana Loureiro decided to extend the probe to criminal matters in light of possible crime of lack of administrative probity in the purchase.

According to the document, it´s intended to probe some irregularities into the contract agreed between the Precisa Medicamentos Company -which represents in Brazil the Indian Bharat Biotech Lab (Covaxin manufacturer) and Brazil´s Health Ministry.

Because of this upheaval, the Comptroller’s Office Minister Wagner del Rosario announced the transaction was called off while internal investigation is on process.

Previously, three senators filed a lawsuit to the Supreme Court to probe Jair Bolsonaro for alleged prevarication crime, as he failed to act in a corruption case.

‘I filed a lawsuit to the Supreme Federal Court due to a serious complaint that President Bolsonaro did not take any action after being informed of a monumental corruption organization in the Ministry of Health,’ MP Randolfe Rodrigues said in a video.
