Brazil prosecutors seek to bar Bolsonaro's son as envoy to U.S


BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian federal prosecutors filed a court injunction on Monday seeking to bar the appointment of right-wing President Jair Bolsonaroís son Eduardo as ambassador to the United States due to his lack of experience as a diplomat.

The public prosecutorís office asked a Brasilia court to rule on the need for non-diplomats to have relevant international experience and served the nation abroad for at least three years.

Opposition lawmakers have also sought to block Eduardo Bolsonaro becoming Brazilís envoy in Washington by introducing a bill against nepotism in the public administration.

Bolsonaro, who has developed close ties with U.S. President Donald Trump since taking office in January, has defended the appointment of his son, saying he is a friend of Trumpís family which would help improve relations between the two nations.
