Brazil’s Supreme Court has announced corruption investigations into at least eight ministers and dozens more top politicians in a sweeping decision that affects almost one third of embattled President Michel Temer’s government and many of his top allies.
The list of names under investigation released by Justice Edson Fachin on Tuesday read like a Who’s Who of Brazilian politics, tarnishing past statesmen and potential presidential candidates alike.
The list, whose contents had been subject to furious speculation and a number of leaks, became public when Fachin lifted the seal on plea bargain testimony from 77 employees of construction company Odebrecht, which has admitted paying millions of dollars in bribes.
In Sao Paulo, residents banged pots and pans in protest against political corruption, while in the capital Brasilia deputies left a session in the lower house earlier in the day as news of the list began to break.
