Senator Flavio Bolsonaro and lawmaker Eduardo Bolsonaro, the two eldest sons of the far-right leader, recently went to the Italian Embassy in Brasilia to request citizenship, taking into account their Mediterranean origins.
Faced with an uncomfortable question by reporters about a possible flight to Europe, Flavio stated angrily, ‘That hypothesis is ridiculous.’
He said he was a senator of the Republic and ‘I intend to run for reelection in 2026.’
Users of digital platforms have made ‘Bolsonaro will run away’ a trending topic on Twitter, according to the Brasil 247 portal.
Supporters are concerned that a politician as active on the social web as the former military officer has remained silent for too long and fear his political and judicial future.
Bolsonaro carries on his back several investigations that may take him to prison after handing over the presidential sash to Luis Inacio Lula da Silva next year and losing the so-called privileged forum.
