Brazil | 2nd probe into environment minister's alleged obstruction of illegal logging investigation

Brazil’s controversial environment minister, Ricardo Salles, faces mounting legal problems after the country’s highest court authorized an investigation — the second in two weeks — into allegations that he obstructed a police operation against illegal logging in the Amazon.


The move on June 2 greenlighted by the Supreme Federal Court comes two weeks after the same court authorized investigating Salles in connection with alleged illegal exports of timber from the Amazon.
