A former executive of state oil giant Petrobras returned 157 million reais ($51.4 million) as part of a deal to reduce his sentence for taking part in a massive corruption scheme, the Brazilian attorney general said.
The money paid back by Pedro Barusco was deposited in a federal court account, Rodrigo Janot said at a public event in Brasilia, reported Efe.
“The results (of the investigation) are visible because the work proceeds in an impersonal manner,” he said. “It is not targeted at this or that person. What we seek is to elucidate the facts.”
