SÃO PAULO - The Brazilian President Michel Temer was heavily under attack on Wednesday. He is accused of having accepted payments to impose a possible witness in a corruption investigation. Temer denies that there have been payments.
The news site O Globo reported Wednesday that it was silent for the convicted Eduardo Cunha, former chairman of the Brazilian House of Representatives and Temer party mate. He is imprisonment for more than fifteen years for corruption and was the driving force behind the forced departure of former president Dilma Rousseff.
O Globo has recorded a conversation between Temer and two high-ranking JBS meat workers, who worked under the auspices of the Public Prosecutor for self-reduction. From that conversation it became apparent that Temer would pay silence.
