Brazil's Temer involved in Petrobras graft: witness

Brazilian acting President Michel Temer gives the thumbs up during a meeting with party leaders of the National Congress at Planalto Palace in Brasilia, on June 15, 2016Brasília (AFP) – Brazil’s interim president Michel Temer was involved in a massive corruption scandal shaking the country’s political establishment and asked for dirty cash diverted from state oil company Petrobras, a key witness said. The explosive allegations were made by Sergio Machado, the former chief executive of Petrobras subsidiary Transpetro, in a plea deal with prosecutors that could take down yet more big-name politicians in the sweeping scandal. Machado said Temer personally asked him for money from an illegal kickbacks scheme at Petrobras to fund an ally’s campaign for mayor of Sao Paulo in 2012, according to a prosecution document obtained by AFP Wednesday.
