Case against the president of the Republic, ministers and former members of Parliament is filed in the Supreme Court

Thursday, September 14th 2017

A criminal case against the President of the Republic, Michel Temer, as well as former lawmakers and two federal government ministers was filed in the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) by the then Prosecutor-General, Rodrigo Janot. In the case presented in Inquiries (INQs) 4327 and 4483, Janot accuses Michel Temer, Eduardo Cunha, Henrique Alves, Geddel Vieira Lima, Rodrigo Rocha Loures, and ministers Eliseu Padilha and Moreira Franco of integrating a criminal organization aimed at obtaining benefits in the scope of the public administration. The indictment also accuses the president of the Republic and the J&F group´s CEOs Joesley Batista and Ricardo Saud of obstructing investigations of the criminal organization, allegedly taken place through the payment of undue benefits to Lúcio Funaro, in order to stop him from reaching a plea bargain.

The then Prosecutor-General of the Republic points out that, since the President of the Republic stands accused of crimes, the case and its information must be sent to the Chamber of Commons for admission, pursuant to Article 86 of the Federal Constitution.
