The newspaper O Globo, of the Marinho family, used the charge of Chico Caruso, published on its front page, to express its main purpose related to Operation Wash jet: the arrest of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
The drawing depicts “José Dirceu” (former Brazilian corrupt politician) behind bars with a smartphone, the image of former President Lula and the title of the famous song ‘Now, just missing you’, from singer Rita Lee.
Internally, the columnist Merval Pereira said that “it is possible to ask and discuss whether Lula will be arrested.” Merval went further and said that “the question is now waiting to see if our democracy is already mature enough for us to see with ease, though outraged, a former president being investigated for corruption.”
Before him, former President Fernando Henrique Cardoso said that “if Lula deserves to be arrested, it is is regrettable because he will have thrown away his history.” It is clear, therefore, that the right search derail eventual return of Lula in 2018, through the courts.

Recent investigations by the Federal Police do not spare big names of the business and political scene. Does the Justice Department is finally working equally for all?

There are several signs showing that the Federal Police is not sparing anyone. Any evidence of corruption and other factors that may lead to any crime, is being spent to clean.
Yesterday leaked the news that Delcídio had hit its award-winning tipoff (see link). Said the Rural Channel that would certainly create a setting conducive to compromise Lula and Dilma.
Today we woke up knowing that the Federal Police triggers new phase of Lava jet on Lula’s house, and takes him to testify (G1).
How will end this story? And how it will reflect on President Dilma? Is it time to leave Dilma power is coming?

“The construction company Camargo Corrêa paid $ 3 million for the Lula Institute and $ 1.5 million for the LILS Lectures Events and Advertising, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, between the years 2011 and 2013.
It is the first time that the business of the former president appear in the investigation of Operation Lava jet, which clears a cartel scheme and corruption at Petrobras with a loss of $ 6 billion already recognized by the state.
Three payments of $ 1 million each recorded as ‘Contributions and Donations’ and ‘Electoral Bonus’ to the Institute opened by Lula after he left the presidency in 2011.
The revelation about the link of the construction company – one of the target cartel leaders Lava jet – with Lula stated the report 1047/2015, the Federal Police, attached on Tuesday, 9, in the records of the investigation. “
The Institute Lula and the PT lectures company apparently served to heat the money received from Camargo Corrêa.

Beautiful thing. Finally.

PF holds former minister José Dirceu and Wash jet “operation” approaches Lula
By Sergio Spagnuolo

CURITIBA (Reuters) – The Federal Police arrested on Monday the Civil House former minister José Dirceu, touted as one of the “top leaders” who instituted the billionaire scheme of corruption in Petrobras also during the period in which he held the position in Planalto Palace, leading the operation Wash jet directly to the center of government of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
Investigators said the model was similar to the monthly allowance, vote-buying scheme in Congress discovered during the Lula government that the former minister now serving a house arrest sentence.

Dirceu, strongman of Lula’s government during the period that led to the Civil House (2003-2005), was arrested by the Federal Police preventively at his home in Brasilia as part of the 17th stage of the operation Wash jet, which was named “Pixuleco “alluding to the term used to name the bribe received contracts.

“We have an investigation that seeks José Dirceu as the settlor’s Petrobras scheme still in the Civil House time, even in the former president Lula government time,” said the prosecutor of the Federal Prosecutor Carlos Fernando dos Santos Lima news conference in Curitiba where they are concentrated investigations of the Wash Jet.
In this case, Dirceu is accused of personally enriching to receive kickbacks from Petrobras service providers, even while imprisoned in Brasilia condemned the monthly allowance scheme.

“We are facing a case of criminal reiteration that José Dirceu comes within that scheme receiving bribes from the monthly allowance of the investigation, through prosecution and going up for his arrest,” said the prosecutor.

Among the charges against the former minister is that he would have received 96,000 reais a month between 2004 and 2013 in the form of kickbacks on behalf of an outsourcing contract with Petrobras. The charge was made by the lobbyist Milton Pascowitch, one of the informers of the Wash jet, according to the order of the Justice ordered the arrest of Dirceu.
At a news conference in Brasilia, the lawyer Roberto Podval, representing Dirceu, said the preventive arrest of the former minister was unnecessary and that Dirceu became “scapegoat.”

On the evening of Monday, the Minister Luis Roberto Barroso, the Federal Supreme Court (STF), Dirceu put at the disposal of the Paraná Federal Justice, allowing transfer from Brasilia to Curitiba.

The brother of former minister, Luiz Eduardo de Oliveira e Silva, also arrested on Monday on a temporary basis, would be responsible for collecting the money in companies for JD Advisory, owned by Dirceu, while former minister was arrested said the researchers from Wash jet.

Echoing recent comments of the Minister of the Supreme Court Gilmar Mendes, Lima spoke about the similarities of this scheme with the so-called monthly allowance.
“We understand that the DNA, as Gilmar minister says (Mendes, of the Federal High Court) is the same as the monthly allowance and Wash jet. In this case, I believe that José Dirceu is one of the people who decided to create this scheme, “he said.


More than one beneficiary, the task force seeks to prove that Dirceu was one of the “top leaders” in Petrobras corruption scheme institution.

“We want to show José Dirceu as one of the agents responsible for Petrobras scheme institution even at the time … was minister of the Civil House,” said the prosecutor.

Dirceu would have been, according to the MPF, responsible for the appointment of two directors of Petrobras involved in the scandal: former directors Services and Supply, Renato Duque and Paulo Roberto Costa, respectively.
Also according to the MPF, Dirceu was responsible for defining positions in the administration of Petrobras and thus instituted the tuition payment scheme in the state, which was one of the beneficiaries.

“This scheme involves the purchase of parliamentary support, he goes through a facilitation profit of contractors, it passes through the enrichment from many people – in the case of José Dirceu, we have evidence from personal enrichment, not only more money for the party” said the prosecutor.


We have long speculated on the possible involvement of Dirceu in investigations of the Wash jet, but authorities had not linked the name of the former minister to Petrobras scandal. That changed with the denunciation made by the authorities in accordance with the lobbyist Milton Pascowitch.
In early July, the defense of the former minister came to petition for habeas corpus preventive by the 4th Regional Federal Court to prevent him arrested under the Lava Jet. The request was denied.

“We were waiting for information to allow the confirmation of the hypothesis that we had worked, which occurred only recently both Pascowitch agreement when Julio (Camargo, Toyo Setal company), and some other things that we could confirm,” said reporters delegate PF Márcio Adriano Ancelmo.

The former minister is the first member of highlight of the Lula government to be arrested as part of the Wash Jet.

Asked if Lula himself can be investigated or even detained by the authorities, the prosecutor’s MPF said that “no one is exempt from being investigated,” but added that “there is currently no indication of the need to arrest anyone is that is not currently arrested. “
Unless some more may be involved criminally!

      Ridiculous artice. Full of fake and manipulated info, and photoshoped images.

      What is happening is not “Justice”, is a COUP from the right wing Elite. They could not bare their 4th in row defeat against the Workers Party (PT). So, they are trying to get the power thru a Judicial Coup just like what happened in Paraguai.
