A Petrobras manager was among the subjects of search warrants issued to police on Thursday, part of a years-long investigation into alleged corruption at the Brazilian state-controlled oil firm, according to court documents seen by Reuters.
Brazil’s federal police served 25 search warrants as part of the sweeping “Car Wash” probe, one of the world’s largest-ever corruption investigations. No arrests were made on Thursday.
The warrants were related to 7.7 billion reais ($1.45 billion) in suspected fraudulent foreign-exchange transactions carried out between 2008 and 2011 at Petrobas, formally known as Petroleo Brasileiro SA.
