Government tries to stop Probing Comission

The opposition parties managed to obtain support among Deputies and Senators to establish a Probing Comission to investigate the corruption in the state owned Postal Service company (see entry of May 16th below).

The Government alleges that the Police and the Public Prosecution are already doing their jobs, and therefore a Probing Comission wouldn´t be necessary.
The Government is trying to persuade Deputies and Senators who signed in for the Comission to retreat their support. This article by O Globo says that the government is using the federal budget to convince Deputies; this happens because in Brazil the government has flexibility to execute the budget.
