Federal prosecutors filed a court injunction on Monday seeking to bar the appointment of right-wing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's son Eduardo as ambassador to the United States due to his lack of experience as a diplomat.

The public prosecutor's 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 Brazil's envoy in Washington by introducing a bill against nepotism.
