Probe Reporter Talks About ‘Glaring Evidence’ of Scam in Brazil’s Ruling Workers Party

The reporter of the Joint Parliamentary Investigation Commission (CPMI) on Vote-Buying, Deputy Ibrahim Abi-Ackel (PP-Minas Gerais) declared, Thursday August 11, that there is “glaring evidence” that the entrepreneur, Marco Valério, is guilty of a foreign exchange credit scam.

“There are no concrete facts that can incriminate him, but by the statements that he just made here today, there is certainly glaring evidence that he was an accomplice in the crime of concealing foreign exchange credits,” Abi-Ackel commented, after the entrepreneur from Minas Gerais had finished his testimony.


In the CPMI that is probing Post Office affairs, the advertising executive, Duda Mendonça, said that, besides the cash payments he received from Valério, money was deposited in an account in the Bahamas, a Caribbean country recognized as a tax haven.


According to the adman, it was Valério himself who suggested to Zilmar Fernandes, Mendonça’s partner, that they open a foreign account to receive the rest of the money owed them in return for services rendered to the PT.


The CPMI on Vote-Buying approved a request by the president of the Senate, Renan Calheiros (PMDB-Alagoas), to hire specialists on an emergency basis to track the funds transferred abroad by individuals who are being investigated by the Commission.
