Weekly magazines

All three weekly magazines, again, published reports about the Federal scandal.

IstoÉ came up with the most contundent news: Valério Marinho, the man accused by Roberto Jefferson of carrying loads of money around to pay bribe to legislators (on behalf of the Worker´s Party), used to withdraw large amounts of cash (over R$ 100,000.00 each time) from his bank. Valério withdrew a combined amount of more than R$ 20 million (about US$ 8 million).

Valério argues that he used the money to buy premium cows and horses for his farms; according to him, farmers didn´t take checks, so he had to bring cash.
