09/10/2017 - 07:53:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - Former Brazilian minister Geddel Vieira Lima was arrested Friday morning in Salvador city by the Federal Police after investigators have found his fingerprints in the apartment where he allegedly stored R$ 51 million (US$ 16.38 million) in cash.

According to a statement from the Federal Public Prosecutor's Office (MPF),the federal judge Vallisney de Souza Oliveira issued two arrest warrants and three search and seizure orders to be carried out in Salvador, the capital of Bahia state, to avoid destroying evidence.

On Tuesday, the Brazilian Federal Police has found the money stored in the apartment, located in an upscale neighborhood in Salvador. The place was opened under judicial order by the federal police after collecting information related to Operation Cui Bono, which investigates a fraud scheme within a public bank, Caixa Econômica.

Geddel, who was a vice-president at Caixa Econômica from 2011 to 2013, and former House of Representatives speaker Eduardo Cunha, are singled out as the primary articulators of the scheme.

Geddel was a minister under Michel Temer and Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Before that, he was a federal representative for the PMDB, Temer's party.
