Brazil makes corruption arrests

Brazilian authorities have arrested 16 mayors and a judge for their alleged role in a major corruption scheme.

The country’s federal police claim more than $100m of public money was diverted in a complex plot to defraud Brazil’s social security agency. More than 50 people were arrested after an eight-month investigation.

These include the mayors of 16 cities, as well as nine lawyers and a federal judge accused of selling the decisions that made the scam possible. The mayors are mainly from the state of Minas Gerais, north of Sao Paulo.

And when the police will knock Lula’s door? Or is the president innocent?

Legal fight over Zimbabwe recount

Zimbabwe‘s opposition says it will mount a legal challenge to the election commission’s order for a ballot recount in last month’s contested polls.

Votes from 23 constituencies will be recounted on Saturday, local media say. A change in the parliamentary result by nine seats could see President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu-PF party regain its lost majority in the assembly.

A key minister said the army would not be used against the people, despite opposition claims of intimidation. Two weeks after the elections, official results of the presidential race have not been released.

Mugabe has lost and he’s not going to admit it alone, been a ruthless ruler is his thing and he has too many crimes on his back to give up now peacefully.
