Te­mer tape ‘au­then­tic’

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

BRAZIL­IAN Fed­eral Po­lice con­firmed the au­dio of Pres­i­dent Michel Te­mer or­der­ing bribes has not been al­tered and is a proof of the pres­i­dent’s in­volve­ment in the largest cor­rup­tion scan­dal in the coun­try.

Au­thor­i­ties said there were 180 “nat­u­ral” au­dio in­ter­rup­tions and re­jected claims by Te­mer that the au­dio had been edited to in­crim­i­nate him in the Lava Jato scan­dal, in which hun­dreds of politi­cians are ac­cused of re­ceiv­ing bribes in ex­change for se­cur­ing gov­ern­ment con­tracts.

“Ex­perts found tech­ni­cal dis­con­ti­nu­ities… with­out signs of fraud…,” said po­lice.
