Brazil President Charged with Corruption
The President of Brazil, Michek Temer has been charged by the Brazil’s top federal prosecutor with corruption, specifically with receiving multimillion-dollar bribes.
The prosecutor, Rodrigo Janot accused the president of fooling Brazilian citizens, maintaining the he owes the nations millions in compensation for accepting bribes. The chief prosecutor made this known while submitting the charge to the country’s supreme court.
This will inevitably, be a deafening blow to the president of Latin America’s largest country.
The Brazilian law provides that the lower house of congress will have to vote on whether to allow the top tribunal to try the president. Lawmakers who are allies of the president are positive that they have the votes to impede the two-third majority required to commence with the trial.
