Ministry replacing CGU plans text of interim measure that pleases control bodies over agreements with investigated companies
The Michel Temer government plans to draw up a new provisional measure to discipline leniency agreements with companies involved in corruption cases, including contractors investigated in Operation Lava Jato. This will be one of the tasks of the new Ministry of Inspection, Transparency and Control, led by Minister Fabiano Silveira, 41. The new text will be produced under the supervision of the Casa Civil, headed by Minister Eliseu Padilha. The main objective is to seek consensus on the topic. So far, this has not been possible due to differences between the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU), the Federal Public Ministry (MPF) and the defunct Comptroller General of the Union (CGU) - which, under the Temer government, was renamed the Ministry of Transparency.
