The former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro recently spent two nights at the Hungarian embassy in Brasilia, his lawyers confirmed Monday. According to The New York Times, Bolsonaro stayed at the embassy from February 12 to 14 after a police operation related to the “coup attempt” investigation prevented him from leaving the country.

Bolsonaro’s lawyer denied that he was trying to avoid justice, stating that he stayed in the embassy due to “contact with the authorities of a friendly country.” They emphasized Bolsonaro’s good relationship with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. Despite facing legal challenges such as an eight-year ban for spreading disinformation about his election defeat and investigations into forging vaccination certificates during the COVID-19 pandemic, Bolsonaro’s stay at the Hungarian embassy has been described as diplomatic rather than an escape attempt.
