Venezuela decries Mercosur 'coup' after trade bloc suspension | Reuters

BUENOS AIRES/BRASILIA An increasingly isolated Venezuela accused the Mercosur trade bloc of staging a "coup" on Friday after member nations suspended the socialist nation for failing to fulfil membership requirements.In an official letter addressed to Venezuela's Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez and seen by Reuters, Mercosur informed Venezuela of "the cessation of the exercise of the rights inhered to a member state as of this date."Following a decade in which strong growth and leftist policies across South America led the bloc to embrace Venezuela, the suspension now underscores the ideological split in a region struggling with plummeting commodity prices and enfeebled economies.It further isolates the administration of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who is accused of exacerbating the political, economic and humanitarian crises battering the Andean country. Rodriguez said she had not been notified in accordance with the rules of Mercosur and said Venezuela was the victim of "a coup at the heart of Mercosur.""An illegal Mercosur is being born," she said at a press conference in Caracas.

Brazil prosecutors blast lawmakers for gutting corruption bill | Reuters

BRASILIA Prosecutors investigating Brazil's biggest-ever graft scandal threatened to resign en masse on Wednesday if a move to gut an anti-corruption bill won approval from legislators as the nation mourns an air disaster.The lower chamber of Congress passed the bill in the early hours of Wednesday morning by 450 votes to 1, with changes that would help shield lawmakers from prosecution and weaken the authority of public prosecutors.The vote came as Brazil grieves for football club Chapecoense following an air crash on Monday night in which 71 people died, including all but three of the team's players and several journalists."In the dead of night, they took advantage of a moment of national mourning and shock to subvert the proposals," said Deltan Dallagnol, leader of the team of investigators probing a massive political kick-back scheme centred on state-run oil company Petrobras (PETR4.SA).Dallagnol accused the lower chamber of seeking to block Operation Car Wash as it comes close to incriminating a "significant number" of lawmakers in the Petrobras scandal.The anti-corruption bill originated in a petition signed by 2.5 million Brazilians frustrated at widespread graft. Prosecutors on the taskforce called a news conference to denounce the changes to water down the bill. #United States #Business #Brazil #Olympics #Crime #article
