Documents seized in Brazil scandal refer to Dominican leader
Santo Domingo.- Documents seized and divulged by Brazil’s Federal Police at the residence of João Santana and his wife Monica Moura in Camaçari, Bahia state, among which figure various notes and references to Dominican Republic president Danilo Medina, acento.com.do reports Thursday..
The Federal Police sent the documents to the office of judge Sergio Moro at Curitiba.
A report by Brazilian magazine Veja today cites notes, emails, invoices, copies and purchases of luxury real estate.
Santana, head of Dilma Roussefs campaign for the presidency in 2010 and 2014 and of Jose Inacio Lula da Silva’s in 2006, also headed Medina’s campaign until the scandal broke several months ago.
In a box on which the couple wrote “Dominican” several documents cite financial transactions from 2011 to 2013 in a bank in the Caribbean.
The folder marked “Dominican” contains at least two references to Medina, both mention “Danilo.”
Veja reports that the references to Dominican Republic and Danilo may be the transfer of funds for Danilo Medina for the elections in the Dominican Republic, “but for now, the Federal Police (PF) doesn’t draw any conclusions about the seized material.”
The PF says is a preliminary work, which could identify issues that may deepen with the passage of investigations.
The report was sent to the Federal Court in Curitiba, which seeks to prove among the seized materials, documents relevant to the probe and that may be confronted with what has already been determined.
“From what we know thus far, the publication says, the couple received 193 million reals of PT between 2004 and 2015. In Camaçari, PF cards found the Lula Institute and Clara Ant, director of the institution.”
Lula is being investigated for lobbying in several countries for the construction giant Odebrecht, including the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Panama and Angola.
