As part of an investigation into fake Covid-19 vaccine cards, Bolsonaro’s aide was raided and arrested amid the fake Covid-19 vaccination records scandal.
The mansion of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and other locations in Brasília, and Rio de Janeiro were raided by police on Wednesday as part of an investigation into fake Covid-19 vaccine cards.
Two of Bolsonaro’s security guards were also taken into custody. The ex-president was expected to be questioned later on Wednesday. Bolsonaro’s mobile phone was seized at his residence in Brasília and he was obliged to hand over the password after initially resisting.

The allegedly falsified records include those for Bolsonaro, his 12-year-old daughter Laura, and Mauro Cid Barbosa and his family. The records were reportedly entered into the health ministry’s database between November 2001 and December of last year – Bolsonaro’s last month in power after losing the last presidential election to far-left rival Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
