Brazil’s former President Michel Temer has turned himself to the police over corruption charges. This is the second time that Temer will be jailed over allegations that he partook in extensive corruption schemes.
The Brazil former President was arrested in March and over charges of embezzlement and money laundering, he was placed in “Preventative detention” in Brazil’s Capital, Rio de Janeiro.
Temer, 78, turned himself in on Thursday – “on Wednesday, a federal judge ordered the former president to return to jail while he’s investigated in several cases of alleged corruption related to the Car Wash investigation, a far-reaching probe that has roiled Latin America’s largest nation”, reports Aljazeera.
Michel Miguel Elias Temer Lulia is a Brazilian lawyer and politician who served as the 37th President of Brazil from 31 August 2016 to 31 December 2018.
