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.
