Will Argentina grant asylum or shelter to any fugitives from the 1/8/2023 attempted coup in Brazil by the end of 2024?


On January 8, 2023, an attempted coup took place in Brazil, leading to numerous investigations and arrests. Some of the individuals involved have since fled the country.

The Argentine government has stated that it will assess asylum requests from these Brazilian fugitives on an individual basis. The assessment will be conducted by Conare, the commission responsible for handling asylum applications in Argentina. This process involves evaluating the legality and feasibility of each request, which could delay Brazil's efforts to extradite the fugitives.

Argentine spokesperson Manuel Adorni confirmed that no premature decisions would be made, emphasizing the need to follow legal procedures. Despite Brazil's request to locate and extradite 143 fugitives believed to be in Argentina, the Argentine Ministry of Security reported no current knowledge or alerts regarding these individuals.

The Brazilian authorities have been actively pursuing the fugitives, with a recent operation recapturing 50 individuals while identifying others possibly residing in Argentina. The final decision on granting asylum lies with the Argentine President, Javier Milei, who is an ally of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
