Jair Bolsonaro: He was discharged from a hospital in Florida

Its far-right ex-president Brazil, Zach Bolsonarowas released yesterday Tuesday (10/1) from a hospital near Orlando, Ill Florida of USAwhere he was admitted yesterday Monday, said a img close to his family.

The same information was given earlier by Laurou Jardim, journalist of the newspaper O Globo.

Mr Bolsonaro, who flew to Florida 48 hours before his term was up – he was the big absentee at the Jan. 1 inauguration of Luis Inacio Lula da Silva’s centre-left successor – was hospitalized a day after thousands of far-right protesters stormed the three powers in Brasilia, Congress, the Supreme Court and the presidential palace, causing widespread destruction.

Meanwhile, Jáich Bolsonaro’s son, Flavio, reported that his father has nothing to do with the recent unrest in Brazil. “Don’t try to create a false narrative, as if Bolsonaro had anything to do with these irresponsible actions,” Flavio said in a speech to the Senate. “After the announcement of the results he keeps silent, he licks his wounds, he is virtually isolated,” he said.

The former head of state was treated for bowel pains linked to a knife attack he suffered during a campaign rally in 2018. Mr Bolsonaro’s doctor said it was nothing serious.

Nearly 600 arrested Bolsonaro supporters released ‘for humanitarian reasons’

Brazilian police released “on humanitarian grounds” nearly 600 of the suspects arrested after the attack on government buildings in Brasilia on Sunday, while 527 other detainees were taken to a local jail.

The people who were temporarily accommodated in the gymnasium of the National Academy of the Federal Police were taken by coach to a bus station from where they will be able to return home, AFP journalists said.

Inside one of these buses, passengers chanted “Victory is ours!” Some stuck their hands out the windows and made the victory sign or clenched their fists.

The Federal Police confirmed that 599 of those arrested were released “for humanitarian reasons” as they were the elderly, people with health problems or mothers with young children.

The buses that left the Academy did not all go to the station. Some transported detainees to a police station, from where they were then taken to Papunda Prison – a total of 527 suspects.

“The Federal Police training school was turned into a Nazi concentration camp. It’s humiliating to see how they treat good people like us,” said one of the freed Bolsonaros, Agostinho Ribeiro, as he got off the bus.

A woman, who asked to remain anonymous, however, gave another version. “Everybody was treated well, nobody died over there,” he said.

The Federal Police denied the information that an elderly man died on Monday at the Academy.

Authorities earlier said about 1,500 of the Bolsonaros who stormed the Presidential Palace, the Supreme Court and Congress, as well as those in the makeshift camp outside the Army general staff, were arrested.
