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

Minister at centre of Brazil's latest scandal quits | Reuters

By Lisandra Paraguassu and Anthony Boadle | BRASILIA BRASILIA One of Brazilian President Michel Temer's closest allies resigned as minister in charge of relations with Congress on Friday, following accusations he pressured the culture minister to approve a property investment. The resignation of Geddel Vieira Lima - along with accusations that Temer himself also raised the investment with then Culture Minister Marcelo Calero - rattled investors.Brazil's currency and stock prices sank as traders worried the turmoil would derail Temer's efforts to overhaul government finances and restore economic growth."It's time to go," Vieira Lima said in his emailed letter made public by Temer's office, following an announcement by the public prosecutor's office that it was considering whether to open an investigation. #Politics #Business #Brazil #Culture #Olympics #Crime #United Kingdom
