Brazilian Federal Police said Thursday they have carried out a series of raids against business executives and government workers suspected of involvement in a hospital bribery scheme.
The agency said a hospital company, Pro-Saude, allegedly paid bribes for contracts and then overbilled state government, using a parallel bookkeeping system.
Police said they had made at least six arrests during more than a dozen searches in five cities. They said the suspected crimes include corruption, money laundering, and organized crime.
The allegations stem from contracts from 2013 to 2015, most with the state of Rio de Janeiro.
