All Four of Jair Bolsonaro's Sons Are under Investigation

Senator Flávio, Councilman Carlos, Deputy Eduardo and Jair Renan are targets in different cases


With the newly opened inquiry into Jair Renan's conduct, four of President Jair Bolsonaro's (no party) children are under investigation.

The Chief Executive's youngest son is being investigated by the Federal Police for alleged influence peddling through Bolsonaro Jr Eventos e Mídia, a company he launched in November. The investigation was initiated on Monday (15), based on a request made by the Attorney's Office in the Federal District.

Carlos, in turn, is under investigation on suspicion of having employed ghost employees in his office at the City Council of Rio. Eduardo is the focus of a preliminary investigation by the Attorney General's Office on cash payments for the acquisition of two properties in the south of Rio between 2011 and 2016.

The president's eldest son, Flávio, is accused of leading a scheme in which his employees in the Legislative Assembly of Rio de Janeiro passed on their salaries to him. The Public Prosecutor's Office charged him in November 2020 on crimes of embezzlement, money laundering, and criminal organization.
