Radio Habana Cuba | Bolsonaro accused of money laundering in Brazil; Lula relaunches investigation into former dictatorship

Brasilia, July 10 (RHC) — Brazil’s far-right former President Jair Bolsonaro has been indicted on charges of money laundering and criminal association in connection with undeclared diamonds from Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, Brazilian President Lula da Silva has re-established a special commission to investigate crimes committed during Brazil’s military dictatorship.

The commission, created in 1995 to investigate disappearances and other human rights abuses committed by the military regime between 1964 and 1985, had been dismantled by Bolsonaro, a former army captain who served during the dictatorship.
