Brazil judge says senator may have interfered with Petrobras probe

BRASILIA, Nov 25 (Reuters) - Brazilian Supreme Court Justice Teori Zavascki said on Wednesday that Senator Delcidio Amaral had been accused of trying to silence former Petrobras executive Nestor Cervero in a corruption investigation and confirmed he had ordered his arrest.

Cervero has been sentenced to 12 years in jail for paying a bribe to the speaker of Brazil’s lower house of Congress, and his lawyers had been trying to negotiate a plea deal with prosecutors. (Reporting by Leonardo Goy; Writing by by Caroline Stauffer; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn)
