Brazil’s Newly-Appointed Health Minister Investigated for Corruption

Brazil’s newly-appointed Health Minister Ricardo Barros faces an investigation for charges like corruption, embezzlement and crimes against the Tender Act, Brazilian sources reported today.

Barros, Treasurer of the Progressive Party (PP) and five times elected federal deputy, is being investigated for the time he served as mayor of the city of Maringá in 1990.

Back then, he was appointed by interim president Michel Temer and was sentenced by the State Court of Justice for fraud regarding the sale of garbage compactor and collectors, and has to pay back more than a million reals.

Barros challenged the decision of the Supreme Court, but the appeal was rejected in 2014.

The Minister also served as Secretary of Industry and Commerce in Paraná in 2011, but he was removed from the position due to reports of irregularities in his management ad head of the ministry.
