On 19 March 2024, a Brazilian federal police indictment against Bolsonaro was released by the country's Supreme Court, which included accusations of fraud related to whether he was vaccinated for COVID-19, though the decision whether to criminally charge him falls to the prosecutor-general's office (AP, Guardian, Yahoo). The ordering of Bolsonaro to house arrest with Bolsonaro's presence at the pertinent home confirmed will count. Brazilian airspace and territorial waters are considered to be "inside" Brazil. The jurisdiction served by public authorities who arrest Bolsonaro is immaterial.
