All of characters in Corruption Soap Opera from Brazil : Minister Steps Down Over Remarks on Corruption Probe

A senior minister in Brazil’s interim government said he would step down Tuesday after being accused of plotting to curb a huge corruption investigation.

“The government has to be changed in order to stop this bleeding,” Juca is reported to have said in a conversation with a suspect in the investigation, former Senator Sergio Machado.
Planning Minister Romero Juca was reportedly taped in a “secret” recording saying that a “national pact” was necessary to limit the country’s biggest-ever corruption investigation into the state-owned oil company, Petrobras, according to Reuters. “The government has to be changed in order to stop this bleeding,” Juca is reported to have said in a conversation with a suspect in the investigation, former Senator Sergio Machado.

Michel Temer in place as president 
The recording, which was reported by local newspaper Folha de S. Paulo on Monday, was made before President Dilma Rousseff was suspended on May 12 to face an impeachment trial. Rousseff is accused of financial violations but says she is the “victim of a coup.”

Juca, along with several other ministers, is under investigation in the Petrobras case for alleged bribery, Reuters reports. He is the first to fall since acting President Michel Temer stepped in for Rousseff. Juca denied any wrong doing and said his comments were taken out of context.

The first two weeks of Temer’s newly installed government provided abundant evidence for both of these claims. He appointed multiple ministers directly implicated in corruption scandals. A key ally in the lower house who will lead his government’s coalition there — André Moura — is one of the most corrupt politicians in the country, the target of multiple, active criminal probes not only for corruption but also attempted homicide. Temer himself is deeply enmeshed in corruption (he faces an eight-year ban on running for any office) and is rushing to implement a series of radical right-wing changes that Brazilians would never democratically allow, including measures, as The Guardian detailed, “to soften the definition of slavery, roll back the demarcation of indigenous land, trim housebuilding programs and sell off state assets in airports, utilities and the post office.”
