AP — Former Brazilian President Michel Temer remained silent when questioned by investigators Friday, a day after he was arrested as part of the country’s sprawling Car Wash corruption probe.
The probe has ensnared several top politicians and businessmen in the South American country, including former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who is currently serving a 12-year sentence.
Temer, 78, was arrested on corruption charges Thursday, with prosecutors saying that construction company Engevix paid him bribes in exchange for a contract to build a nuclear power plant in the city of Angra dos Reis in the southern part of Rio de Janeiro state.
