Belo Monte

The Federal Police (PF) investigates the payment of bribes for the construction of the Belo Monte plant as part of Operation Car Wash, now led by rapporteur  Edson Fachin at the Federal Supreme Court.The operation was given the code name Leviathan.

 
Among its targets is Márcio Lobão, son of the senator and former Minister of Mines and Energy Edison Lobão (PMDB-PA).

It seems that the creators of the Xingu monster are about to emerge. Will someone now look at the creature’s victims? Corruption is unsustainable!
