Judicial authorities ordered the re-arrest of the former head of state, who is accused of corruption
So, we are talking about a Brazilian ex-President Michel Temer.
Note that Temer has already been taken into custody March 21. However, this decision was challenged by his lawyers, stating that “there is no need to jail a 78-year-old politician, because he is not a threat to society”, reports TASS.
And the ex-President then was released.
However, on Wednesday, may 8, held another hearing at which the court confirmed the validity of the held in March arrest. According to prosecutors, the former head of Brazil, being at liberty, can affect the course of the investigation.
Temer was arrested in Sao Paulo in the case of possible corruption in the construction of a nuclear power plant “Angra 3”. In particular, we are talking about bribes in the amount of one million reais (more than 260 thousand dollars).
Also Temer is accused of organizing a criminal group. According to the materials of the criminal case, the ex-President of the head of a criminal organization that for the last 40 years operating in Rio de Janeiro.
Also, police are studying a controversial presidential decree that simplified standards for the management ports of the country. Investigators suspect that Temer could sign this document in the interests of the logistics company Rodrimar S. A. in exchange for a reward.
Temer assumed the position of President in 2016 after the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff, during which he for six years was Vice President. He resigned as President in 2018, and then lost the immunity from criminal prosecution.
As previously reported, a court in Seoul sentenced former South Korean President Park Geun-Hye to prison on charges of corruption.
In particular, the former President was sentenced to 24 years. Park Geun-Hye was charged for 18 episodes of corruption, bribery, abuse of office and divulging state secrets.
We note, initially, the prosecution asked the court to sentence the former President to 30 years in prison. However, the court decided not to condemn Park Geun-Hye to the maximum term of punishment.
Park Geun-Hye is the first woman who became President of South Korea. She took this position in 2013. In 2017, Park Geun-Hye was removed from power by the constitutional court amid a corruption scandal and mass protests, the participants of which demanded her resignation.
According to investigators, a close friend of Park Geun-Hye — Choi (Choi), sung-SIL — in fact, controlled the work of the head of state and had access to classified information. In addition, sung-SIL has forced large companies to make contributions to the associated funds.
