Brazil’s prosecutor general has requested an investigation of President Jair Bolsonaro over his conduct in negotiations to acquire Covaxin COVID-19 vaccine, which has been steeped in scandal, according to a copy of the request seen by Reuters.

The request from the prosecutor will have to be approved by Supreme Court Justice Rosa Weber and comes in response to a request from senators. The senators asked for an investigation over alleged corruption in the acquisition of vaccines.
