On Wednesday, the leadership of Brazil were once the bribery scandal, since one of the major Newspapers of the country have accused President Michel Temer to pay former Senate colleagues of hush money.
Temer's office issued a statement in which he denied that he had authorized the bribe to the prisoner, former speaker of the house of Eduardo Cunha in prison in exchange for his silence in connection with a long investigation of corruption.
Earlier investigation of corruption led to the imprisonment of some of the most well-known politicians and business owners in Brazil. More than 80 people were accused of bribery and money laundering during the operation "car Wash". Former President Dilma Rousseff was dismissed last year after the Senate found her guilty in violation of the budget legislation amid swirling corruption investigations, although she is not accused of corruption. Temer was the former Vice-President Rousseff and now serves as the interim President since her resignation in may 2016.
The broad corruption investigation began 3 years ago with the arrest of the Executive power, controlled by the Brazilian government oil company Petrobras. Petrobras and Odebrecht, the largest construction firm in Latin America, played a leading role in the market of bribery. The scandal is the main reason why Brazil is experiencing the worst recession in history.
