According to cable news channel CNN Brasil, the Brazilian Association of Lawyers for Democracy denounced President Jair Bolsonaro at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, due to his “misconduct” over the coronavirus crisis. The association says Mr. Bolsonaro’s attitudes are “absolutely reckless and irresponsible,” exposing Brazilian citizens to risk due to “concrete actions allowing for the spread of the virus.”

Mr. Bolsonaro has been the most adamant opponent of containment measures, saying that he fears the measures to contain Covid-19 may be worse than the disease itself.
