The Hungarian Embassy in Brazil fired, this week, two Brazilian employees who provided services to the agency.

The embassy did not formally justify the dismissals. One of those affected worked as secretary to the Hungarian ambassador to Brazil, Miklós Halmai; the other, as a general maintenance person.

The report showed videos from the internal circuit of the Hungarian Embassy in Brasília that show Bolsonaro arriving and leaving the building. These videos have not been officially released by the Hungarian government.

Under international law, embassies are inviolable by local police. In other words: while in an embassy of another country, the citizen cannot be searched or arrested by local authorities.

In addition to the two fired employees, five other Brazilians work at the embassy: a driver, two cleaners and two gardeners.

The two fired people had real-time access to the surveillance system. The recorded material was recorded in a room that was not locked – but access to the recordings required a password.

Bolsonaro has 48 hours to explain why he slept two nights at the Hungarian embassy

PGR analyzes Bolsonaro’s version

Following the report by “The New York Times”, Minister Alexandre de Moraes gave Bolsonaro 48 hours to explain his stay at the Hungarian Embassy.

In response, Bolsonaro’s defense said it would be “illogical” to suggest that the motivation was a request for asylum or an attempt to evade investigations.

The arguments were sent to the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), which has a deadline of the end of this week to send a position to Moraes.
