The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BRASÍLIA: Brazil’s Pres­i­dent Michel Te­mer, to­gether with con­gres­sional lead­ers, vowed yes­ter­day to block any at­tempt by leg­is­la­tors to grant them­selves a cor­rup­tion amnesty as he sought to defuse a se­ries of scan­dals. In a rare week­end news con­fer­ence, the pres­i­dent sought to re­as­sure Brazil­ians that he is fight­ing cor­rup­tion among the po­lit­i­cal elite and work­ing to re­store an econ­omy that he pre­dicted will see an up­turn in the sec­ond quar­ter of 2017. – AFP
