The aide, Fabricio Queiroz, had deposited the money between 2011 and 2018. He was an aide to now-senator Flavio Bolsonaro, the president’s eldest son when he was a Rio de Janeiro state legislator. 

He is under arrest in an investigation into bank deposits made at the time amounting to 1.2million reais (£163,000). 

Queiroz and Flavio Bolsonaro are also facing investigation for a scheme that allegedly swindled pay from government employees in the years before the Jair Bolsonaro became president in January 2019.
