The past haunts the future of President Jair Bolsonaro and his family members. This is the conclusion of journalist Juliana Dal Piva, author of the book “The Business of Jair – The Forbidden History of the Bolsonaro Clan” (Zehr, 2022), which consolidates the plans which according to the author are known as the “rift”. . , for the promotion of the President and his sons Flavio, Eduardo and Carlos throughout his political career.
According to Dal Piva, the family functions as a group: the child and the father will be one. “The key evidence that was gathered to condemn Flavio Bolsonaro for the illegal practice of cracking and money laundering was to see what aspect Bolsonaro often talked about: his office and his three children were one and the same. ” He writes.

In the final chapter of the book “The Clan Counterattack”, she considers a maneuver used by the president to interfere with the investigation of a case initiated by the Public Ministry of Rio de Janeiro, which was incompetently canceled. was. The first example, but can again be condemned by the public ministry, argues the author.
Revealed in late 2018, the “Crack” scandal is the thread of a ball that Juliana Dal Piva pulls to reach the 1990s, the beginning of the political career of Jair Bolsonaro, a former army captain, since he was 33 years old. Were. Paid Reserve, when he was first elected to the city council of Rio de Janeiro.
In an investigative and research work, supported by dozens of interviews and extensive documentation, Dal Piva reconstructed the organized system of diversion of public funds, indicating that it dates back to Jair Bolsonaro’s earlier electoral disputes with the involvement of his children. . , ex-wives, relatives, friends and militiamen.
After 811 days of investigation – two years and two months –, prosecutors in Rio de Janeiro condemned Flavio Bolsonaro on November 4, 2020. “Flavio Bolsonaro was appointed as the leader of a gang that demanded about 90% of the salary of his cabinet staff”, says Giuliana Dal Piva.
Money paid for personal expenses of Bolsonaro family
The investigated complaint against Senators Flavio Bolsonaro, Fabricio José Carlos de Queiroz and 15 others for the criminal organization, practice of the offenses of embezzlement, money laundering and embezzlement, occurred between 2007 and 2018, when the senator in legislation was the deputy of the state. The Assembly of Rio de Janeiro.
“For an allowance, these men withdrew all their salary and handed over practically all their salary to the deputy lieutenant of PM-RJ Reserve, Flavio’s former adviser and Jair’s longtime friend. With cash, The president’s firstborn paid for personal expenses, bought real estate and injected these funds into the cashier of a chocolate store, the owner of which was in a mall in the western area of Rio, to launder money”, says Dal Piva.
Evidence gathered in the complaint, which according to Dal Piva traces the route of funds extorted from consultants employed for the MP himself from Flavio Bolsonaro in the Office of the Legislative Assembly of Rio de Janeiro, was quashed. Following the victory of Flavio Bolsonaro’s thesis before the Federal Supreme Court (STF), in the wake of the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) quashing breaches of bank secrecy, it was possible that the privileged platform of an MP should be maintained. Go. Elected Senator.
In recognition of Flavio Bolsonaro’s special platform, the investigation was withdrawn from Judge Flavio Itabiana of First Instance. “With the decisions of the STF and STJ, the investigation returned to square one. It was not quashed outright, but it was dropped with the stipulations of demanding that all financials routed the advisors’ money to Flavio. Evidence recreated.”, writes Dal Piva.
Journalists point out that, although this is unlikely to happen before the outcome of the 2022 elections, Rio de Janeiro’s Attorney General of Justice (PGJ) will be able to determine new acts to investigate the matter. Special body of the Court of Rio de Janeiro, the first complaint, which took place on May 16, 2022. Queiroz (Fabricio Queiroz, who was accused of being the operator of the plan) and others”, she says.
This likely, according to the author, would explain Jair Bolsonaro’s expressions of concern about what might happen to him if he is not re-elected. “So much so that it tries to surround itself in every way, denying access to even basic transparency information, such as those who see it in Planalto or Alvorada. In previous governments Data that was public now has a hundred years of secrecy”, evaluates Dal Piva. The author of “The Business of Jair” concluded: “Jair Bolsonaro and his children fear that people will find out who they really are, their lives and their secret ventures. But the forbidden history of the Bolsonaro family will not be erased.” “, guarantees the author.
