BRAZIL: Former MPs, Friends Of Temer Accused Of Engaging In Criminal Activity

04/10/2018 - 18:16:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - Former Brazilian representatives and close friends to President Michel Temer were formally charged as members of a criminal organization. The Justice Marcus Vinicius Reis Bastos, of the 12th Federal Court of Bras?lia, accepted a complaint from the Federal Public Ministry (MPF) that includes Jose Yunes and Colonel Jojo Baptista Lima Filho, both close friends of Temer, and former MDB representatives.

Yunes and Lima Filho are under arrest since the Brazilian Federal Police launched the so-called Operation Skala. Both already testified in another inquiry in late March that investigates alleged unfair benefits to the company Rodrimar emanating from a decree signed by Temer on Brazilian ports.

The former representatives enrolled are Geddel Vieira Lima, Eduardo Cunha, Rodrigo Rocha Loures and Henrique Eduardo Alves, framed as "the MDB mob." They became defendants for the alleged misappropriation of public money.

The complaint against the group was lodged by former Attorney General Rodrigo Janot under Operation Greenfield, alleging that they were negotiating improper advantages with Petrobras, Caixa Economica Federal and the House of Representatives. According to Justice Bastos, there are new and robust evidence that point to the formation of the criminal organization.

The Attorney General Office had denounced Temer in the same scheme, but the investigation against the president was rejected by the House of Representatives last year.
