Brazil’s Chief Federal Prosecutor, Rodrigo Janot, on Monday night said he may annual testimony of key witnesses in a corruption probe involving Brazilian President Michel Temer. Janot said testimony by executives of meatpacker JBS was tainted by omissions and misstatements. Janot said he may annual an immunity agreement with the executives, which might render their testimony as tainted in court. That, in turn, would weaken any eventual government case against Temer. In a brief statement Monday night, President Temer said he was “pleased” by Janot’s comments. News reports said Janot’s statement tended to strengthen the president’s position in Congress.
