Brazilian President charged for accepting bribes
The President has been accused and charged for having links with a graft scheme involving the world’s biggest meatpacking company, JBS SA. According to the allegations, Temer was about to receive an amount of 30 million reais ($11.5 million).
Document that are presented to the Supreme Court, aims to imprison Rodrigo Rocha Loures, an ex-lawmaker and close advisor to the Brazilian leader, and contains the accusation against the president.
“Rodrigo Loures represented the interests of Michel (Temer) in the occasions when he met with representatives of Group J&F. Through him, Temer arranged to receive unfair advantages in exchange for favors in public affairs,” wrote Janot.
Now it depends on the lower house of Congress to vote to decide if the top tribunal should be able to try the Brazilian leader.
