Brazilian federal police accuse Jair Bolsonaro of money laundering and criminal association

Sao PauloThe federal police of Brazil accused the former president Jair Bolsonaro money laundering and criminal association in relation to undeclared diamonds the far-right leader received from Saudi Arabia during his tenure, according to a source with knowledge of the allegations.

A second source confirmed the accusation, though not for specific crimes. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Brazil’s Supreme Court has yet to receive the police report with the accusation. Once he does, the country’s attorney general, Paulo Gonet, will analyze the document and decide whether to press charges and take Bolsonaro to trial.

The indictment dramatically raises the stakes in a series of investigations into the divisive former leader applauded by his opponents but denounced as political persecution by his supporters. Bolsonaro has denied any wrongdoing.
