Brazil police raid Bolsonaro’s home, seize phone

POLICE in Brazil searched ex-president Jair Bolsonaro’s home and seized his cell phone yesterday, investigating allegations the far-right vaccine sceptic and his inner circle falsified Covid-19 vaccination certificates to dodge health restrictions.

Bolsonaro, who faced widespread criticism as president for his unorthodox handling of the pandemic, denied the allegations, accusing the authorities of trying to fabricate a case against him.
