On that occasion, supporters of the former president of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro (PL), carried out acts of vandalism in Brasília with the involvement of residents of Mato Grosso do Sul.

After the undemocratic acts, the AGU (Attorney General of the Union) requested the blocking of R$18.5 million in assets from at least 52 identified financiers.

In Mato Grosso do Sul, 32 people were arrested after being involved in the undemocratic acts of January 8th. In addition, another 11 people from Mato Grosso do Sul were monitored using electronic ankle bracelets.
