    Is there any financial scam that does not involve an EUian or Anglo?

    Alleged. Not been found guilty of anything yet.
    If indeed he is eventually proved guilty I guess it would be because he 'went native' and picked up the local disease.

    “ Native ” in the Copacabana Palace Hotel ?

    Rooms there were going for R$ 800-1200 per night during the Copa. The only sign of disease this svelte fellow appears to be suffering from is buffet-gluttony.

    I think our Supreme Court Justice Marco Aurelio Mello is allowing the PF to continue to investigate through the entire 51,000 phone intercepts.
