Suitcases filled with money found at the house of an ex-Minister give a glimpse into the amount of money corrupt politician embezzled

Federal Police found, on Tuesday (05), money in an apartment that would be used by Geddel Vieira Lima (PMDB-BA) in Salvador. The former minister is under house arrest in Bahia.

According to the PF, Operation Treasure Lost started on Tuesday had the purpose of executing search and seizure warrant issued by the 10th Federal Court of Brasilia. After investigations resulting from data collected in the last phases of Operation Cui Bono, the PF arrived at an address in Salvador, which was allegedly used by Geddel Vieira Lima as a “bunker” for the storage of cash in kind. During the search, a large amount of cash was found.

According to police, the amounts seized will be transported to a bank where it will be accounted for and deposited in a court account.

The report came into contact with Geddel Vieira Lima’s defense at 11.55. Through the advice, the information is that the attorney representing the former minister could not speak to the report at the time because he is attending a hearing in Brasilia. The information is from Rede Bahia.

    The artist is French not Mexican, JR I think he goes by.

    And that picture there thats dope as hell. That almost seems like the risk of death, injury, and or aids would be worth it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b78bd5ca99edf4cec410bc2783929e135517d5585bab295c2100e114c8e75af4.jpg
