Ramagem, who has become one of Bolsonaro’s biggest allies, is the name chosen by the former president to run for mayor of Rio de Janeiro in this year’s elections.

According to the source, Ramagem’s office was searched. Reuters reached out to the congressman, but did not receive an immediate response. A Bolsonaro representative also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The raids were carried out with the authorisation of Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes and follow the “Last Mile” operation launched in October, in which the federal police investigated Abin’s illegal use of software to spy on public authorities and regular citizens. — Reuters
