In 2014 a corruption scheme emerged in Brazil with unprecedented political and judicial repercussions. Dubbed Lava Jato ('Car Wash' in Portuguese), the investigation has uncovered large-scale bribery, kickbacks, money laundering, cartel practice, influence peddling and illegal campaign finance involving the state-run oil company Petrobras.
Using investigators’ reports and judicial sentences as well as campaign finance records and government payments orders, this presentation looks in depth at the mechanics involved in the corruption flows to discuss the links between campaign finance, state capture, political exploitation, and overcharged public contracts channelled back to campaigns, politicians, parties and senior bureaucrats.
