Marcelo Luiz Nogueira dos Santos, former employee of the lawyer Ana Cristina Siqueira Valle, told the column that the second wife of President Jair Bolsonaro used the money from the sale of an apartment in Rio de Janeiro to pay down the purchase of an appraised mansion at R$ 3.2 million in Lago Sul, in Brasília. The change was revealed by the column last week.
In the interview with the column, the former employee spoke about the various properties that Ana Cristina bought during her marriage to Jair Bolsonaro. Asked about an apartment in Barra da Tijuca, Marcelo Nogueira, as he is known, said that she no longer had the property. “No, she has already sold it. It was with this money that she is building her house”, says Nogueira, saying that the lawyer did not rent the mansion, but bought the property using oranges.

A survey of registries in Rio de Janeiro conducted by the column this week identified that Ana Cristina actually sold the apartment in Barra da Tijuca on April 13, 2020 for a total of R$1.290 million. This is another negotiation that draws attention as she registered the purchase of this same apartment at the notary’s office for R$ 420,000 just nine months earlier, on July 19, 2019. With that, she got three times more than the amount she spent to buy it. it. During this period, the city of Rio de Janeiro assessed the apartment, for tax purposes, at around R$ 1.2 million.

A rule instituted in February 2020 requires that transactions with these characteristics, purchases of properties declared well below the appraised value, are declared by the notary offices to the Coaf (Conselho de Controle de Valores Financeiras) as “atypical movement”. The determination of the communication of the notary offices was made by the Internal Affairs of the National Council of Justice (CNJ) in the fight against money laundering as of February last year.
move to the mansion
Ana Cristina and Jair Renan Bolsonaro, Jair Bolsonaro’s son ’04’, have been living since June 12 in the property that is four minutes from the JK bridge, one of the capital’s noblest and most valued areas.
The deed of the mansion records that it was purchased on May 31 by a broker named Geraldo Antônio Machado. He lives in another modest house 30 kilometers away, in a condominium in Vicente Pires, a middle-class administrative region in the Federal District. The deed states that the mansion in Lago Sul was purchased for R$2.9 million (about R$300,000 below the appraised value of the residence). Last week, Machado said he rented the mansion to Ana Cristina days after the purchase because he had a “problem” in another business. However, according to Marcelo Nogueira, they would have some drawer contract.
“She was already negotiating the house”

She and Jair Renan were still living in the 70 square meter apartment that is in the name of President Jair Bolsonaro. “When I arrived in Brasília, she was already negotiating this house”, reveals Nogueira. “She got the key on June 6th and moved out on June 12th,” he says.
After that, Nogueira says he helped the two move into the mansion and worked for days at a time. “I helped to make the move. I received the move from Resende. I built the whole house. Alone,” he says.
