Former Rousseff Aide Wanted for Corruption Surrenders to Brazilian Police

RIO DE JANEIRO – A publicist with strong ties to President Dilma Rousseff’s governing Workers Party surrendered Tuesday to Brazilian authorities after a warrant was issued for his arrest as part of the investigation into the corruption scandal at state oil company Petrobras.

Joao Santana landed Tuesday morning at the airport in Guarulhos, Sao Paulo state, with his wife Monica Moura, from the Dominican Republic where he was working on the reelection campaign for President Danilo Medina.

From there the couple was flown on a Federal Police plane to Curitiba, capital of the southern state of Parana, where the judicial investigation is taking place into the $2 billion corruption scheme in which Petrobras was implicated for many years.

Both Santana and Moura are accused of taking part in a kickback scheme through offshore tax havens linked to the construction giant Odebrecht, which is heavily implicated in the Petrobras scandal.

Federal Police representatives said Monday that documents were discovered in the course of the investigation that listed Workers Party expenses during the mid-term congressional campaigns in 2008 and 2012.
