The agency’s travel records indicate that General Cid and this employee, Michael Rinelli, investment director at Apex Miami, traveled from Miami to Brasília in the period between November 26 and December 11, 2022, at an approximate cost of R$ 9,300 for the agency’s coffers – the public information system does not include expenses for air tickets, which are billed through a contract with a third-party company.

The official justification for their trip from Miami to Brasília was an agency celebration event held in December 2022, with the presence of employees from the various Apex offices.
On December 3, the general summoned two Apex employees from Miami, who were his subordinates, to visit the military area of ​​Brasília, without saying that they would go to the coup camp. When they arrived there, the general began to circulate around the place and show the facilities to the agency’s employees.

Apex is not a state body, but functions as a legal entity under private law supplied with resources from the S system. Therefore, it is audited by the TCU (Federal Audit Court) and must report to the court of accounts. In 2022, the agency’s budget was R$1.3 billion.

This period of General Cid’s trip to Brasília coincides, according to Federal Police investigations, with discussions of a coup draft by then President Jair Bolsonaro with the top leadership of the Armed Forces.

The cell phone of Lieutenant Colonel Mauro Cid, who was Jair Bolsonaro’s aide-de-camp, had a coup draft file on November 5, 2022, and the pressure intensified from then on. A meeting was held at Palácio do Alvorada, on December 7, for Bolsonaro to present a coup draft to the heads of the Armed Forces.

General Mauro Lourena Cid is being investigated in the case of the sale, in the United States, of jewelry received by Jair Bolsonaro during the period in which he was President of the Republic.
