Investigation into Super Tucano planes underway
Attorney General Francisco Dominguez Brito says that an investigation is underway in connection with the supposed bribes paid during the purchase of the Super Tucano planes.
He said that his office and the Brazilian legal system have been cooperating by checking documents and they would present their conclusions when the time was right. The Attorney General said that they have been asking Brazil for information since 2013 and while they have some, they are still waiting for other documentation.
Dominguez Brito said that the case was by no means closed.
The Wall Street Journal recently disclosed irregularities in the transaction involving bribes to push through the sale of the Super Tucano to the Dominican Air Force during the Fernandez administration.
