Brasilia: The International Criminal Court (ICC) based in The Hague, the Netherlands confirmed having received a complaint from the commission accusing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro of crimes against humanity during the covid-19 pandemic.

The complaint against Bolsonaro was made by the Investigative Commission of the Brazilian Senate, which carried out investigations into the management of the health crisis by the Brazilian Government.

Completed in October 2021, the investigation commission requested the indictment of 78 people, including Jair Bolsonaro and ministers and former ministers of the government.

The conclusions of the work were sent to several national investigative bodies, such as the Federal Supreme Court (STF), the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) and the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU).

The Brazilian Senate Commission requested that Bolsonaro be charged with nine crimes: “epidemic resulting in death; infringement of preventive health measures; irregular use of public funds; incitement to crime; falsification of private documents; quackery; crime of prevarication; crime against humanity and crime of responsibility”.

In addition, the commission considered that Bolsonaro’s negligence, incompetence and anti-scientific denialism would have been the cause of the mismanagement of the pandemic in Brazil.

After receiving the complaint, the ICC must now decide whether or not to proceed with the investigations against Jair Bolosonaro.

The court in The Hague has jurisdiction over crimes affecting the international community, including war crimes, genocide, crimes against humanity and aggression.
