Brazil Feds schedule Bolsonaro testimony for April 26
Brazil's ex-President is expected to testify about his alleged involvement in a coup attempt on April 26.
Former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is expected to testify about his alleged role in a January coup attempt on April 26, according to Brazilian network Globo. Last month, Bolsonaro returned to Brazil to reenter politics.
Bolsonaro returned home despite facing legal trouble on various fronts in Brazil -- notably for his alleged role in inciting supporters who rioted through the halls of power on January 8 in a failed bid to oust Lula, the veteran leftist who beat him in a divisive election in October.
According to sources, the Federal Police have scheduled Bolsonaro's testimony as part of the probe for April 26.
Last Friday, Supreme Federal Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes stated that the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court has given Bolsonaro 10 days to testify about his suspected involvement.
Months before the incident, Bolsonaro expressed concerns about Brazil's electronic voting machines, claiming that the system was vulnerable to tampering without providing evidence. He is also being investigated for his actions as president.
Lawyers for Bolsonaro have allegedly disputed that there is any proof that he committed a riot-related crime.
