      New graft charge against Brazil’s President Temer
      Date created : 20/12/2018 – 00:17

      Brazil’s chief prosecutor lodged a fresh corruption accusation against President Michel Temer on Wednesday, alleging that while a deputy he had received bribes from companies involved in running ports.

      It is the third corruption charge leveled at the outgoing president, who on January 1 will be succeeded by Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right politician promising an anti-corruption crusade who won October elections in which Temer did not run.

      . . .

      The outgoing president escaped action over the previous two corruption allegations against him when Brazil’s congress voted to dismiss them.
