Bolsonaro and former first lady Michelle sued Lula after furniture from the Palácio da Alvorada reported missing was found in a storage room at the official residence itself. They asked for R$20,000, which would be donated to a charity, and a retraction in the press and the Presidency’s communication channels.

Government found furniture after Lula blamed Bolsonaro for the disappearance. At the beginning of his term, last January, Lula and the first lady, Janja, said they found the Palace in poor condition and with items missing. “I don’t know how they did it, why they did it, I don’t know if it was the couple’s private things, but they took everything,” said the president at an event with journalists.

Absence was one of the justifications for spending R$196,700 on new furniture, according to the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper. A bed, two sofas, two armchairs and a king size mattress were purchased.

Minister said that furniture found was “very damaged”. “There was no type of control. Throughout the year we managed to find these items. Many of these items, in fact, were items that were damaged, they were furniture that was very damaged, spread across warehouses”, said Paulo Pimenta, from Secom (Secretariat of Social Communication of the Presidency).
