More troubles for the Government

1) The Supreme Court ruled that a Probing Comission to investigate the Waldomiro affair. The oposition parties collected the number of signatures to start the Comission, but the government supporting parties avoided its effective instalation by not appointing the members.
2) A Federal Deputy, Raquel Teixeira, currently on leave, confirmed before a Comission that she was offered R$ 30 thousand to change Party; the proposal came from Sandro Mabel, who is accused by Roberto Jefferson of being one of the leaders of the bribing scheme which operated in the Congress.
3) Maurício Marinho, the employee of the Postal Service who was filmed accepting a bribe, also spoke in Congress and, despite denying he was a criminal, suggested that there is corruption in other areas of the Postal Service company. His accusations involve Luiz Gushiken, Minister of Communication and Public Relations of Lula´s government.
4) Ex-Minister José Dirceu returned to the Federal Camara, and his first speech was far from being peaceful. The Worker´s Party brought many sympathizers to the plenarium of the Camara to give support to Dirceu. Some opposition Deputies said that Dirceu and government were corrupt. There were corporal agressions.
