On a domestic front, Brazilians are examination one extraordinary telenovela.  The latest is about Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the former boss of Brazil who is now a aim of a review over temptation during Petrobras, a oil monopoly.

This is from The New York Times:

Lawyers for Mr. da Silva pronounced in a matter that he was trusting of a deterrent charges, observant that he had “never interfered” in a Petrobras investigation.

The charges branch from testimony by Delcídio do Amaral, a former senator in a Workers’ Party who was arrested in Nov after he was listened in a tip recording describing an elaborate devise for Nestor Cerveró, a former Petrobras executive ensnared in a scandal, to rush Brazil on a private plane.
