A former director of the Brazilian state-owned oil company Petrobras has been sentenced to twelve years in prison, as part of a huge investigation into bribery and corruption.
Jorge Zelada, who ran Petrobras’s international division, was convicted of money-laundering and corruption.
Another Petrobras manager, Eduardo Costa Musa, and two others were also jailed.
The men were paid millions of dollars in bribes by a Petrobras contractor.
