Brazilian police targeted the son of Senator Edison Lobão and a former senator in search-and-seizure operations on Thursday, a source said, investigating possible bribes paid during construction of the Belo Monte hydroelectric dam.
Federal police said searches were based on warrants issued by a Supreme Court judge handling “Car Wash”, a sweeping corruption probe, but did not disclose the names of the targets.

Lawyers for Marcio Lobão said he had committed no illegal act.
