A grande corrupção nunca é devidamente investigada *

Corruption allegations are rarely properly investigated, let alone brought to court. Holders of high office cannot be tried by courts of first instance; congressmen can be tried only by the Supreme Court. And even if a case does come to court, Brazil’s legal system offers almost endless opportunities to spin things out. Natan Donadon, a congressman found guilty in 2010 of embezzling public funds, was jailed only in June this year—the first congressman to suffer that fate since 1988. In August Congress decided in a secret vote not to strip him of his seat.
