Ministers of the Federal Audit Court (TCU) advocate auditing the assets left by former President Jair Bolsonaro, in the search for diplomatic gifts that were not delivered to the Brazilian State.

The procedure, a kind of sweeping, must be defended during the trial of the lawsuit over the Saudi jewelry received by Bolsonaro, in a session scheduled for this Wednesday afternoon (15).

A CNN found out that the request will be made by the president of the TCU, minister Bruno Dantas. The main argument is that the measure has already been carried out in previous governments and, given the case of gifts from Saudi Arabia, it should also be maintained for the former president.

Ministers heard by the report also say that the idea of ​​setting a date for the measure to take place, always at the end of presidential terms, has gained strength.

The judgment of the lawsuits over the jewels that were delivered to former president Jair Bolsonaro will be the first item on the agenda of the plenary session of the TCU this Wednesday (15).

The information was anticipated on Tuesday (14), on the website of CNN , by anchor Daniela Lima. Minister Augusto Nardes, rapporteur for the case at TCU, participated yesterday in the session of the second Chamber and ended up being pressured by the other ministers to include the matter on the agenda.

The trend is for the TCU to determine the return of jewelry within 5 days. However, the fate of the jewels is still unknown. The court of accounts will define whether they will be handed over to the Federal Police, the Federal Revenue Service or directly to the Presidency’s collection.
