Lula da Silva's 41th thief is revealed

As I stated here, that beyond the "corruption nominees" of Lula da Silva government - listed by the Federal Prosecutor, one was missing: former Economy Minister Palocci.

Federal Police has made the job. He was officially indicted for several crimes, according to the (it is ironic) Federal News Agency:

"The former Finance minister, Antônio Palocci, was indicted yesterday (27) for four crimes related to irregularities committed in urban sanitation contracts when he was mayor of Ribeirão Preto (SP).

He will have to answer to charges of money-laundering, conspiracy, misappropriation, and misrepresentation. The investigations into the period of his mayoralty are being conducted by the São Paulo Civil Police.

Palocci is already on the hook in the Federal Police for four other crimes, which he allegedly committed in his term as minister: abuse of official privilege, violation of banking secrecy, prevarication, and calumnious assault."

This is the real face of this government; corruption, treason and crimes.

But, against the common sense, Lula still ahead on the elections polls.

Brazil is not a very easy understable country - even to their citizens...
