A report from the Federal Police (PF) sent to the Federal Supreme Court (STF) on Monday (the 11th) in an inquiry investigating an alleged criminal organization made up of members of the PDMB Party in the Congress concluded that President Michel Temer was in charge of the group and worked through third parties to carry out tasks under its control.
The inquiry, known as "PMDB Big Gang", is still investigating former congressman Eduardo Cunha (RJ), Geddel Vieira Lima (BA) and
Henrique Alves (RN). All three are incarcerated due to different investigations.
"Next to Eduardo Cunha, elements analyzed in the case demonstrate that President Michel Temer held decision making power in the actions of group from the 'Congressional PMDB', for appointments to strategic positions as well as for the determination of businessmen to be favored in the schemes, for receiving amounts, justified as electoral campaign donations", the PF said.
President Michel Temer, through his advisors, said that he doesn't participate in nor has he participated in any criminal gang, as was informed, nor take part in any "structure whose objective is to obtain, directly or indirectly, undue favors from public administrative entities".
"President Temer laments that unfounded insinuations, whose intent is to denigrate his honor and public image, were leaked to the press before being duly considered by the Judiciary."
