    There is no new fact, except the arrest of José Dirceu, which by the way was already arrested.

    The spotlight of national and Western terrorists never tire of showing the same thing.

    And the case of the São Paulo Metro where several multinational bribed the government of São Paulo to win the public tender for the construction of several parts and supply wagons, why not appear on the media?

    And the case of Aécio's helicopter carrying 500kg of cocaine from Paraguay to Minas Gerais, will not be investigated?

    Brasileiro never fails to entertain: according to it/her/him anyone exposing corruption in Brasil is a terrorist.

    It looks like corruption is a majority participation sport in Brazil. Until the culture changes Brazil will remain a Third World Country.

    @1 brrrrrrrASSHOLE
    You wrote “There is no new fact, except the arrest of José Dirceu, which by the way was already arrested. ”

    No new fact ?? Not exactly.....let me clarify, as the brASSHOLE is incapable of interpreting correctly what he hears on the news...Dirceu was already under house arrest, doing time for previous crimes for which he was condemned in the 'mensalão“.....Now, he has been indicted for NEW crimes, in the PB corruption scandal......documents have been found that prove that during the last 10 years, he has been receiving R$ 96,000.00, every month, from bribe money stolen by the PT......I'd say that is a 'new' fact...

    You wrote ”And the case of the São Paulo Metro where several multinational bribed the government of São Paulo to win the public tender for the construction of several parts and supply wagons, why not appear on the media?“

    What news, if any, do you watch ?? It's all over the News, the investigation is underway and Alckmin has already said that those responsible will pay for their crimes....Jeez, are you stupid !!!

    You wrote ”And the case of Aécio's helicopter carrying 500kg of cocaine from Paraguay to Minas Gerais, will not be investigated?“

    Well brASSHOLE, just another one of your lies ; the cocaine, and the helicopter had nothing to do with Aécio, but with a congressman by the name of Gustavo Perella , and his father , senator for the PDT-MG, Zezè Perella.............Just fyg, below is an excerpt from a report at the time :
    Quote”
    “A superintendência da Polícia Federal do Espírito Santo apreendeu, durante operação nesse domingo (24 nov, 2013), 450 kg de cocaína em um helicóptero da Limeira Agropecuária, empresa do deputado estadual por Minas Gerais Gustavo Perrella (Solidariedade), filho do senador e ex-presidente do Cruzeiro Zezé Perrella (PDT-MG)”.

    PQP !! como você é buuurro !!!
