Brazil tackles corrupt meat trader

sao paolo - The Brazilian federal police arrested the meat dealer Wesley Batista. Among other things, he is informed of insider trading and bribery of almost 2000 politicians. Possibly also Brazil's President Michel Temer is involved.

The brother of Wesley, Joesley, is also charged. The brothers own 42 percent of the shares of the huge meat company JBS. The lawyer of the two called the allegations 'incorrect, absurd and regrettable.'

There is a sound recording of a Joesley conversation with President Temer. This is about bribery.

Joesley previously concluded an agreement with justice that he would hand in load material in return for clementie. By chance, however, it came to light that he had retained material.
