Gustavo Bebianno is confirmed dead at the age of 56.
Gustavo was best known as a Brazilian lawyer and politician.
Gustavo Bebianno Rocha (18 January 1964 – 14 March 2020) was a Brazilian lawyer and advisor to President Jair Bolsonaro (PSL). Bebianno became Acting President of the Social Liberal Party in March 2018 after Luciano Bivar registered to run for federal deputy in the 2018 elections.
Bebianno began his graduation in Law in the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), but dropped out in 1990. In the same year, he moved to Miami to give Brazilian jiu-jitsu classes after reaching black belt. Four years later, he returned to Rio to finish his studies. In 2014, Gustavo offered his services as lawyer to then federal deputy Jair Bolsonaro, but the congressman refused, accepting only three years later, in 2017, to support him in his presidential campaign.
After joining the Social Liberal Party on March 2018, along with Bolsonaro, Bebianno was elect National Vice-President of the party, becoming Acting National President after the resignation of Luciano Bivar, president and founder of the PSL.
On 28 October 2018 he stepped down as party President and Bivar retook his office.
In 21 November 2018, almost a month after Bolsonaro's win in the 2018 election, Bebianno was announced Secretary-General of the Presidency.
On 15 February 2019, President Bolsonaro decided to fire Bebianno after a scheme which a federal deputy candidate received 400,000 BRL (125391.85 USD) from a public fund and got only 274 votes in the 2018 election, when Bebianno was the PSL National President. Bebianno claimed to have formal documentation for all the funds he requested at direction by the State.
On 14 March 2020, Bebianno died in Teresópolis, Rio de Janeiro due to a heart attack.
