Public prosecutors accuse former president of leading a criminal organization responsible for illegally appropriating R$1,8 billion (around US$ 460 million) of public funds.
This is one out of ten inquires against him.

Working people commemorate his arrest.

In the opposite direction, top capitalists and mainstream media want ex-president Temer to be released from jail as many parliamentarians under probe could resist supporting the unpopular social security reform in Parliament.

On Monday a judge decided to release him.
