    Corruption a threat to democracy, remarks top Brazilian military on Army Day

    The general spoke alongside Temer, who himself has been charged twice with corruption but so far remains protected by Congress from having to face a trial.

    Brazil's top army commander made another foray into political commentary, warning that corruption poses a threat to democracy in Latin America's biggest country. The comment by General Eduardo Villas Boas was his second high-profile remark on the state of Brazil's democracy this month, going against an unwritten rule that high-ranking military officers keep out of politics.
