Following the discovery, a Brazilian Air Force official was arrested when the plane stopped in Seville, Spain.

“He was found to have cocaine in a baggage weighing 39 kilograms.

“He was arrested for suspected drug trafficking and was in custody at our headquarters in Seville waiting to be brought to court,” spokesman of the Spanish law enforcement agency said.

He was then named Sergeant Silva Rodrigues, 38, by Brazilian television network RecordTV.

The plane, which took off ahead of Bolsonaro, brought the assigned military delegation to protect the president at the Tokyo summit.

“I immediately instructed the Defense Minister to work with the Spanish police to find the facts and cooperate with each level of inquiry, and will launch an investigation by the military police.

“If found guilty of a crime, he will be tried and convicted under law,” Bolsonaro said.
