2013-09-19 10:16:16 | (0 Comments)
Brazil's Supreme Court has narrowly ruled in favour of reopening the country's biggest corruption trial.
The court agreed that 12 of 25 people convicted in a scheme using public funds to pay parties for political support could have appeals heard.
The decision is set to anger many who expected the sentences to be upheld.
But judge Celso de Mello, who broke an earlier deadlock, said justice should not yield to popular pressure.
