Federal Police identifies 19 in ‘Sale’ of Interim Measures; Survey over Lula´s son is dismembered

On Thursday (26), the Federal Police identified 19 people in the survey that investigated the suspicion that interim measures were "bought" to benefit the automotive sector, including the ex-secretary for Foreign Trade at the Ministry for Development, Industry and Commerce, Lytha Spíndola of the Internal Revenue Service, and former director of Communication for the Senate Fernando Cesar Mesquita for alleged passive corruption.

The survey is an offshoot of Operation Zelotes, which since May has been investigating the sale of decisions at Carf, the council under the Ministry of Finance that evaluates the resources of companies in the face of fines applied by the Internal Revenue Service.

The Federal Police (PF) has still decided that the investigation involving one of former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s children, Luis Claudio, will be dismembered and the subject of a new survey, still with no date of conclusion. The data related to Gilbert Carvalho will be added to the same investigation.

One of Luiz Claudio’s companies, LFT Marketing Esportivo, received US $670,000 between 2014 and 2015 from a company belonging to lobbyist Mauro Marcondes Machado, who had automotive companies with clients. The Federal Police considered Luiz Claudio’s explanations regarding the purpose of these payments “contradictory and empty”. The ex-president’s son alleges that he lent his services in the sporting area.

Everyone investigated in the survey denied involvement in irregularities.
