The Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro officially received the AfD MP Beatrix von Storch in his official seat. Her visit to Brazil had already caused severe criticism.
Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro received the AfD deputy chairwoman Beatrix von Storch for a meeting. The member of the Bundestag had a photo distributed on Monday that shows her during a visit to Brazil with the right-wing populist head of state. Storch wrote that her party wanted to “network more closely and stand up for our Christian-conservative values on an international level”.
The meeting, in which the husband of the AfD politician also took part, took place, according to her Bundestag office, on Wednesday last week in Bolsonaro’s official seat. In Brazil, Storch’s meeting with President Eduardo Bolsonaro had already triggered criticism. The country’s most important Holocaust museum, the Museo de Holocausto in the southern Brazilian city of Curitiba, spoke of a burden on democracy.
