So far, two photos of Jair Bolsonaro smiling along with suspects have leaked during the investigation.

Rio de Janeiro’s Governor Wilson Witzel will sue Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for accusing him of manipulating the investigation into the murder of councilwoman Marielle Franco, perpetrated on March 14, 2018.

Bolsonaro claimed that Witzel had manipulated the state police to link the president to the attack on the Rio de Janeiro’s councilwoman, a leftist LGBTQ+ politician, feminist and human rights activist for the rights of the black community in the favelas, who was carrying out an investigation on police brutality in her city’s slums (favelas).

A year and a half after Franco’s murder in Rio de Janeiro, only four suspects have been arrested and limited details of the investigation are known.

Recently, the case once again dominated headlines when TV Globo cited a testimony in which Bolsonaro is linked with one of the suspects.

On October 2nd, The Intercept Brazil journalist Glenn Greenwald leaked a second photo of President Jair Bolsonaro with one of those involved in the murder of Councilor Franco.
