Jair Bolsonaro's Office Participated Salary Kickback Scheme

Personal trainer Nathália Queiroz continued to pass on most of her salary to her father, Fabrício Queiroz, a former aide to Flávio Bolsonaro (Republicanos-RJ), even when employed in the former office of President in the Chamber of Deputies.

Data show that she transferred R $ 150,539.41 to the retired military police officer’s account from January 2017 to September 2018, when she was working Bolsonaro’s office. The value represents 77% of what the personal trainer received from the Chamber of Deputies.

The dynamics passing on the salary is the same described by the Public Ministry of Rio de Janeiro in Flávio’s old office in the Fluminense Legislative Assembly.

Prosecutors said that Nathalia transferred at least 82% of her earnings to her father in the period she was seated at the Rio Assembly, from December 2007 to December 2016. Transfers or deposits always occurred within one week after receiving the salary.

Similar dynamics occurred in the Chamber of Deputies. According to Folha, most transfers occurred between the 21st and the 24th of each month, the date on which civil servants usually receive their salaries.

In a note, Queiroz’s defense stated that the transfers followed the logic of “centralizing family expenses in the figure of the father.” Also sought after by the report, the Presidency of the Republic stated that it would not comment on the case.
