Brazil’s Supreme Court on Tuesday accepted a complaint against the senator and former president Fernando Collor de Mello (1990-1992) for alleged crimes of corruption, money laundering and illicit association in a plot-related case of corruption in Petrobras, judicial sources said today.

The second chamber of the highest court of the Brazilian Justice unanimously accepted the complaint filed by the Prosecutor’s Office in which Collor is accused of receiving 29 million reals (about nine million dollars) in alleged bribes derived from the corrupt network uncovered in the the state oil company.
