As denúncias de Paulo Roberto da Costa atingem a atual presidente da Petrobras no período em que ela tinha outra função na empresa.
Graça Foster é amiga antiga de Dilma e foi ali colocada por ser de confiança.
Parece que as denúncias de Paulo são tão detalhadas que dificilmente podem ser contestadas.
Nada está sendo feito de afogadilho nem de chute.
Tudo que está sendo escrito nas denúncias são textos com documentação anexa e que está bem guardada pelo juiz do caso.
Os detalhes são incríveis tanto das denúncias de Paulo Roberto quanto de seu associado Beto Yousseff.

O fracasso absoluto da privatização de aeroportos feita pelo governo Dilma, com empresas com dificuldades de pagar financiamentos tomados do BNDES, pode ser o primeiro grande problema financeiro do governo Aécio em 2015.
Dilma não se preocupou com o currículo das empresas que aceitaram fazer as obras e assumir os custos com as péssimas condições de comercialização que foram oferecidas.
Tendo a Infraero sócia estas empresas podem acabar não entregando nem obras e nem infraestrutura.
Tudo acaba caindo nas costas da Infraero que vai ter que assumir tudo pra que os aeroportos continuem a funcionar.

ASIC is concerned about companies using ”mirror trading”. Photo: Sasha Woolley
Foreign exchange brokers who automatically generate trades on behalf of clients are under the watch of the corporate regulator.
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission said it was concerned about the number of companies unlawfully using “mirror trading” to generate trades – either through software or expert advice – without individual instructions from clients.
Fairfax Media understands more than half a dozen brokers in Australia use the type of trading. ASIC has launched Federal Court proceedings against one, Monarch FX, and its former director Quinten Hunter.
ASIC alleges Monarch unlawfully used software to generate trades without instructions from clients and is seeking to stop it from operating a financial services business.
It also alleges Monarch recommended clients set up an self-managed super fund to trade on forex markets.
“ASIC is concerned about the number of companies operating similar business models to Monarch FX, which use trading software to automatically execute trades in foreign exchange contracts on clients’ accounts without instructions for each transaction,” it said.
“ASIC considers that this would constitute a [managed discretionary account] service, which requires operators to hold [an] appropriate Australian financial services licence.”
The watchdog has also shut down the Japanese business of foreign exchange broker Pepperstone after it found it didn’t have a licence for that country.
Japan was Pepperstone’s biggest market, accounting for 40 per cent of its revenue in the 2014 financial year.
It was also at the centre of the NAB/ABS insider trading case in May, with former banker Lukas Kamay using his Pepperstone account to allegedly reap millions in unlawful trades.
It is understood Pepperstone, which is planning to list on the ASX, was attracting Japanese clients with leverage of up to 400:1, far above the regulatory maximum of 25:1, which mean clients can trade $25 of any major currency for every $1 in their account.
Pepperstone has an Australian financial services licence. But ASIC commissioner Cathie Armour said an AFS licence didn’t give companies a pass to operate in other countries.
“ASIC reminds all holders of an AFS licence that they must ensure that, when providing financial services in foreign jurisdictions, they understand and comply with the regulatory requirements of offering a service in that jurisdiction,” Ms Armour said.
Pepperstone told clients earlier this month that it would not take on new Japanese customers from December 31.

Major budget cuts to the ABC will force the broadcaster to dramatically cut television and radio content and could cause political damage to the Abbott government, ABC managing director Mark Scott has warned.
In a speech to the University of Melbourne on Monday night, Mr Scott also outlined his programming priorities for the ABC: reduced investment in traditional TV and radio programs with more money spent on online and youth-focused content.

Mr Scott blasted as “mythical” the argument – put forward repeatedly by Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull – that the ABC can absorb large budget cuts without programming being affected.
“For every problem there is often a solution that is simple, neat and wrong,” Mr Scott said.
“It’s tempting to believe there might be a magical formula.
“The mythical back room solution, for instance, where large savings can be ripped out of a media organisation while content remains untouched, suggests binary decision-making, some separation between two fields that simply does not accord with practice in any organisation.
“To find substantial savings you have to look at all parts of your operation.”
Mr Scott said major back office changes to the ABC will take time to produce savings and come with high up-front costs, including redundancies for retrenched staff. Budget cuts, by contrast, will take effect immediately.
“[I]f the government refuses to fund those transition costs, then it’s going to be some time before any savings can be realised,” he said. “Meanwhile, the only alternative will be to cut content dramatically.”
Heavy cuts to the ABC would be politically unpopular given surveys show the vast majority of Australians value the ABC, Mr Scott said.
“Perhaps one of the greatest lessons of the ABC’s history is that while governments have come and gone, public affection and respect for the ABC has lasted and prevailed,” he said.
“The government faces many demands on its budget, and difficult decisions. Yet, as there is no doubt where the owners, the voters stand when it comes to our ABC, the decision about the future of the ABC should be one of their easier ones.”
The government’s powerful expenditure review committee is expected to decide on the ABC budget cuts in mid-November.
Mr Scott said the ABC was reviewing its programming offerings to keep pace with modern media habits.
“We will have to spend less on television and radio to spend more on online and mobile – not just in content, but on the capacity to deliver the services demanded,” he said.
“We know that to flourish within this space, we need to play to our strengths – iview, ABC News online, Triple J, and ABC Kids.”
Investing in Australian content will be a priority, he said.
Mr Scott said the one area the broadcaster will not cut is digital investment – despite being urged to do so by some politicians and commercial media outlets.
Mr Scott said he had expected to know the size of the government’s funding cuts by now after it described the $35.5 million funding reduction in the May budget as a “downpayment” on future savings.
“Being unable to finalise our plans is frustrating for the board and executive, and particularly frustrating for our staff,” he said.
“I believe we’ve been very patient and I’m sure you can forgive us, five months down the track, for wanting some certainty.”

“There will be a lot of tough conversations with Russia”: Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Photo: Alex Ellinghausen
Prime Minister Tony Abbott has set up a confrontation with Vladimir Putin, promising to ”shirt-front” the Russian President when the pair meet at the G20 summit in Brisbane next month.
Mr Abbott’s vow to confront Mr Putin over the loss of Australian lives in the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 marks an escalation of tension between the two nations over the tragedy.

He told reporters on Monday he would tell Mr Putin that Australians were murdered by Russian-backed rebels in Ukraine when MH17 was shot down, and that ”we are very unhappy about this”.
The Prime Minister was in Queensland, where he opened a $3.9 billion coalmine in the state’s centre and defied predictions of the commodity’s demise, saying: ”Coal is good for humanity, coal is good for prosperity, coal is an essential part of our economic future, here in Australia, and right around the world.”
Mr Abbott said he accepted that Russia had not wanted the tragedy to occur but ”we now demand that you [Russia] fully co-operate with the criminal investigation”.

”I’m going to shirt-front Mr Putin,” he said. ”I am going to be saying to Mr Putin Australians were murdered.
”There’ll be a lot of tough conversations with Russia and I suspect the conversation I have with Mr Putin will be the toughest conversation of all.”
A shirt-front is a front-on charge designed to knock an opponent to the ground. It is commonly used in the AFL.

Mr Abbott was one of the most vocal critics of Russia in the days after the MH17 tragedy, sparking suggestions Mr Putin may not come to the November summit. But the Russian leader is now expected to make the trip.
The Prime Minister’s comments came just hours after Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said Mr Putin should ”show enough conscience” not to come to the G20 summit, accusing the Russian President of ”rubbing our faces” in the aftermath of MH17 by making the trip.
Speaking to reporters in Melbourne, Mr Shorten said he understood the government could not act unilaterally to prevent Mr Putin from attending an international conference.
But he believed most Australians would not welcome the Russian President’s visit and ”laying out the red carpet” was not the way to ”deal with an international bully”.
”There’s plenty of evidence to indicate indirect if not direct Russian involvement in the shooting down of this plane which saw hundreds of souls snatched away from their families, with no justification or rationale,” Mr Shorten said.
”How is it that [Mr Putin] will thumb his nose at the rest of the world, go wherever he wants without there being any repercussions or any co-operation with the independent investigation as to how this happened? I believe Putin knows more about what happened with MH17 than he’s let on.”
Mr Shorten added that he would not meet the Russian leader while he was in Australia.
On Sunday, Mr Abbott said it was not in Australia’s power to go against a consensus of the G20’s members and ban an individual leader from attending, after Treasurer Joe Hockey confirmed on the ABC’s Insiders program that Mr Putin would be present.
Mr Abbott acknowledged that some Australians would be angry to see him shake the Russian leader’s hand but he would be seeking an ”assurance from him that he and Russia will do everything they can to ensure that now, at least, justice is done”.
The Russian embassy was contacted for comment.

The Australian Institute of Sport has tightened security arrangements on advice from ASIO after the agency raised the nation’s terror threat from medium to high.
A spokesman from the Australian Sports Commission said while no additional measures had been introduced, security at the Bruce compound were now enforcing procedures which had not been previously.
All vehicles seeking access to the institute must now register with Australian Sports Commission security prior to arrival with identification passes to be visible at all times.

Security have told athletes and staff to be more aware of their surroundings and not to allow unknown people to tailgate them when attempting to gain access to buildings.
“These security measures have been in place for some time however they are being enforced to a higher degree due to the heightened alert level,” the ASC spokesman said.
“Advice was provided through a general ASIO Protective Security Circular issued to all government agencies.
“These procedures will remain in place for the foreseeable future as they represent good security practice.”
The spokesman said staff and athletes had been encouraged to report “suspicious behaviour” to security.
ANU’s Australian Centre for Military Security and Law visiting professor and former military intelligence officer Clive Williams said the tightening of security at the AIS was most likely a precautionary measure.
“I suppose they are reviewing security with a range of different organisations and I don’t believe this would be specifically related to the AIS,” he said.
Mr Williams said it was unlikely national institutions like the AIS or the War Memorial would be targeted with a more likely scenario being random attacks on individuals or MPs.
ANU terrorism expert Dr Clarke Jones said he doubted whether ISIL supporters in Australia had enough sophistication or organisation to attack a national institution such as the AIS in Canberra.
“I very much doubt the AIS would be targeted as there are much easier things to go for and ISIL supporters have shown an interest small-scale high-impact messaging through random attacks, but never say never,” he said.
An ASIO spokesman said the organisation would not comment on specific intelligence matters.
A National Museum of Australia spokeswoman said management “continues to review and adjust security measures as appropriate” while the Australian War Memorial refused to comment on whether they had increased security.
A National Library of Australia spokeswoman said the library monitors advice from the various security agencies as “a matter of course” and responds accordingly.
The tightening of security at the AIS comes after security at Parliament House was strengthened in response to the increased terrorist threat with federal police officers replacing unarmed public servants.
In late September, ACT Policing encouraged Canberra business owners and members of the public to assess their current security measures amid the heightened terrorist alert.
Territory police chief Rudi Lammers said ACT Policing had been in regular contact with the Australian Federal Police and ACT government to identify any potential threats to infrastructure or large gatherings of people.
“We haven’t done anything noticeably different in the community, apart from we’re much more alert to the possibility of a terrorist attack,” he said.
“The community doesn’t need to be concerned, and doesn’t need to be startled, but it needs to be continually alert to the possibilities of a government-stated terrorist attack likelihood.”
Prime Minister Tony Abbott has stressed raising the terror threat level did not mean an attack was “imminent” but instead that there were people in Australian with the “intent and capability” to carry out a terror attack.
The National Gallery was also contacted for comment.
