04 min read

Just recently, Brazil’s Federal Prosecutor has held charges against Jair Renan Bolsonaro, son of former president Jair Bolsonaro for his involvement in some serious financial crimes. The accusations that he has been facing include money laundering and misrepresentation where he showed fake documents to secure a bank loan for his company, Bolsonaro Jr. Eventos e Mídia, stated by media sources.

This has happened exactly a day after his father was charged with fraud because of the crime he committed during Covid-19. He showed fake vaccination documents of his family so they could easily travel during the time the pandemic was at its peak.

The sudden charges against Jair Renan have come after an investigation was done into the finances of his events company. According to the prosecutor, Renan showed that his business is generating high revenues, i.e., 4.6M Brazilian Reals which makes around $924.883 on a loan application. He did so to make his company seem very stable in terms of finance and so that he could also get a huge loan. But this was not it.

The investigation also showed that the statements Jair Renan presented to the bank had fake signatures of the accounting technician. Upon further investigation, the accountant stated that he had not made any of those entries and even the information that the company’s legal representative had did not match. Jair Renan confidently claimed that he also did not recognize the signatures on those documents. However, according to a renowned Brazilian newspaper, the photographic evidence from his banking app is actually the opposite of his claims.

Not to forget, this is not the first time Jair Renan Bolsonaro has been facing legal heat. In the past, he was also accused of using the name of his family for his own personal gain. He had been working in several positions in politics as well but has not been able to achieve the level of his father, Jair Bolsonaro. Now that he has been charged with money laundering and misrepresentation, his name is under deep waters again and questions are being raised about the Bolsonaro family being involved in more corruption as well.

As per media sources, the case of money laundering and fraud has just begun and is still in its initial stages. As of now, neither Jair Renan nor his lawyer has said anything about it in front of the public. But the consequences are already very clear. If he is found guilty of this crime, he might have to live in jail for the rest of his life and also pay some enormous fines for his crimes. Apart from that, the Bolsonaro family will have to face some serious damage to their reputation and also impact their part in the politics in Brazil in the coming years.

The recent development is that the Brazilian police and federal prosecutors have mentioned that no new news or confidential data will be given out any time soon. Let’s see what comes next and how this case of money laundering and fraud is tackled by the Brazilian Federal prosecutor and what charges Jair Renan, the son of former President Jair Bolsonaro faces!
