Brazilian Supreme Court Justice Teori Zavascki died this afternoon in an airplane crash in Paraty municipality, Rio de Janeiro State. Zavascki was following Lava Jato, the operation by the Brazilian Federal Police that started in 2014 and that is investigating corruption and money laundering cases, among other crimes, involving political and business actors.
The judge had interrupted his holidays yesterday to look into the statements of 77 executives of construction company Odebrecht, one of the companies under investigation. The statements, provided in exchange of sentence reduction benefits for the plaintiffs, would give way to new investigations.
Last December, the statements by former head of Institutional Relations of Odebrecht, Cláudio Melo Filho, were leaked, in which he mentioned Michel Temer 44 times. According to Melo Filho, Temer mediated in financial contribution requests for his party, and at least one for himself, according to DCM news outlet .
Ironically, according to statements by experts to Brasil de Fato, it is Temer himself, as established by law, the one in charge of appointing Zavascki´s replacement.
President Dilma Rousseff expressed her condolences via Twitter: "Teori dedicated his life to Law and was zealous of laws and Justice. I had the privilege to appoint him as Federal Supreme Court Justice, with the widespread approval by Senate. He served with fearlessness and integrity. My condolences to his friends and family".

El 16 de abril, tras los anuncios por parte del presidente nicaragüense Daniel Ortega de reformas al Instituto Nicaragüense de Seguridad Social (INSS) que suponían nuevas tasas de aportes al seguro social, cientos de personas salieron a las calles para manifestarse en contra de la medida. La represión policial causó la muerte de varios estudiantes y se profundizó una crisis sin precedentes para los tiempos de este gobierno sandinista. Ya se cuentan más de 170 personas asesinadas, tanto de los opositores como de quienes apoyan al oficialismo.
