Jason Miller, a former adviser of President Donald Trump, was detained by authorities in Brazil as component of an investigation of “anti-democratic acts” in the South American region, according to neighborhood stories. 

Miller, founder of the conservative social media website Gettr, was reportedly held again by Federal Police on Tuesday morning as he was about to board a private aircraft for a flight back to the US at Brasília Airport.

The former Trump adviser was in Brazil to participate in the country’s Conservative Political Action Conference that ran from Sept. 3 to 4. While in the state, Miller reportedly satisfied with President Jair Bolsonaro, Deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (a son of the president) and former Chancellor Ernesto Araujo.

Miller put out a statement declaring: “This Afternoon my touring bash was questioned for a few several hours at the airport in Brasilia, after having attended this weekend’s CPAC Brazil Convention. We were not accused of any wrongdoing, and told only that they ‘wanted to converse.’ We informed them that we experienced nothing at all to say and have been at some point unveiled to fly back again to the United States. Our target of sharing free speech close to the entire world carries on!”
