in the framework of an extensive investigation of bribery. It is known that large Brazilian construction firms are involved  into the scandal and another defendant is a state oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA. (Petrobras).

Prosecutors say Estevez wanted to give a graft to the former director of Petrobras who is currently in custody in order to prevent him from cooperating with the investigation for corruption fraud in the oil company.

He managed to turn the initially small company to one of the biggest and the famous private investment bank in Latin America. The current fraud scandal  is only start, it could serve as the negative start for the economy of Brazil and its effects can reflect  the global market.
