The portfolio holder pointed out that “the facts related to jewelry that may constitute crimes of embezzlement, embezzlement and money laundering, among other possible crimes, will be brought to the attention of the Federal Police for legal action. The office will continue on Monday.

It is a necklace, ring, watch and a pair of earrings that were given by the government of Saudi Arabia to the former first lady, Michelle Bolsonaro. Subsequently, an adviser to the former Minister of Mines and Energy Bento Albuquerque tried to illegally introduce the garments into Brazil.

In this sense, the Federal Police seized during October 2021 at the Guarulhos airport, in Sao Paulo, jewelry valued at three million euros or 16.5 million reais, thus violating the declaration of any object that was aspire to introduce in the country that exceeds a thousand dollars.

After four failed attempts to recover the jewels, even involving three ministries, in December 2022 Bolsonaro sent a letter to the Personal Income Tax office to request the transfer of the jewels to the Presidency.

However, the request was denied since to remove an item confiscated by the Treasury it is necessary to pay the import tax, equivalent to 50 percent of the estimated value, as well as a fine of more than 25 percent for trying to illegally introduce the object. .

For his part, Bolsonaro told the international media last Saturday that “I am being accused of a gift that I neither asked for nor received. There is no illegality on my part. No illegal practice."
