They investigate the Minister of the Environment and other officials for alleged smuggling of wood


(CNN Spanish) – This Wednesday, the Federal Supreme Court of Brazil (STF for its acronym in Portuguese) led to the registration and seizure, forensic analysis and the precautionary suspension of the public function of several officials linked to the Ministry of the Environment for an operation investigating the alleged participation in the illegal export of forest products.

Alexander de Moraes, judge of the country’s highest court, ordered the removal of the banking and fiscal secrets of Ricardo Salles, Minister of the Environment. In addition, it demanded the removal of Eduardo Bim from office as president of the Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (Ibama).

According to CNN Brazil, this Wednesday Salles told the media after a seminar in Brasilia that the investigation would have misled the Minister of Moraes, that these actions never occurred, and that it also seems “exaggerated and unnecessary.” Salles also indicated that he has not had access to the investigation but that he knows what it is about.
