Temer allies try to invalidate “widely publicized” Odebrecht testimony

Allies of President Michel Temer, mentioned along with him in the plea bargain of former institutional relations director of Odebrecht, Cláudio Melo Filho, advocate that his testimony should be disregarded because its content was widely publicized in the press. This is one of the strategies discussed by Mr. Temer’s inner circle at meetings in Brasília and São Paulo after the release of the document, which involves the president of the Republic, the speakers of the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate, as well as dozens of parliamentarians from the allied base and opposition in the corruption scheme confessed by the construction company. “This plea bargain will have to be annulled, this is the legal norm,” said a member of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party, or PMDB, who was cited in the accusations.
