brasilia - Brazilian President Michel Temer has survived a vote in the High Court of his country for a corruption charge. 39 senators voted against a trial against Temer by the Supreme Court. 26 members voted for a procedure.
Next week, parliament must also vote on a case against Temer. It is expected that here too the vote will be in favor of the president.
Temer would have accepted money from the two brothers Batista who lead the huge Brazilian meat company JBS. Both were detained last month. They would have bribed not only the president but also two thousand other politicians.
There would be a sound recording on which one of the Temer brothers speaks about bribery. In exchange for money, the president would ensure that the company would benefit.
