The Odebrecht group decided to make a denunciation according to its top executives, including former president Marcelo Odebrecht, on the day that was the target of the last phase of Operation Lava Jato.

Researchers say have identified a kickback payment department that worked within the company.

Odebrecht also will make a leniency agreement, which is a kind of whistle blowing for companies. The information was advanced by “National News”.

Marcelo was under pressure to make the agreement, including the father himself, Emílio Odebrecht. Emilio feared for the future of the group if there was a whistle blowing and leniency agreements.

in a statement, a company claims: “Reviews and reflections carried out by our shareholders and executives led Odebrecht to decide on a permanent collaboration with the investigations of Operation Lava Jato”.

The note: “We hope that the collaboration clarification contribute significantly to the Justice Department and the construction of a better Brazil”.
