2,000 March in Sao Paulo against Corruption

SAO PAULO – About 2,000 people marched on Sunday in Sao Paulo to protest corruption and support Operation Car Wash, which for more than two years has been investigating the diversion of funds within the state-run oil company, Petrobras.

Wearing green and yellow shirts – the national colors – and waving Brazilian flags, the protesters gathered along the central Paulista Ave. to express the fact that they are fed up with the corruption scandals that in recent years have tainted politicians from virtually all parties.

The demonstrators praised the figure of Judge Sergio Moro, the strict magistrate heading the investigation in the Petrobras case from the city of Curitiba, and ranted against former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

Starting Monday, Moro will hear the first witnesses in the ex-president’s open trial over alleged illegal favors he received from the OAS construction firm, which has been implicated in the Petrobras scandal.

Prosecutors say that Lula and his wife illegally received about $1.1 million from OAS to rehab and decorate a triplex ocean-view apartment, which Lula denies is his property.

In Brasilia, about 50 people protested in front of the Congress demanding that lawmakers approve the 10 anti-corruption measures proposed by the Public Ministry.
