A Brazilian court ordered the release of former President Michel Tamer from prison. The Brazilian court, Fox News reported on Tuesday, said there was no need to continue the imprisonment of former President Tamer because he posed no threat to the ongoing investigation into corruption charges against him.
Brazilian police have not made clear the date of the former president’s release.
Tamer, 78, was jailed along with seven other people last Thursday on suspicion of involvement in corruption cases which the judiciary said should be detained so as not to delay investigation.
Michel Tamer assumed the presidency of Brazil between 2016 and 2018, after the dismissal of former President Dilma Rousseff.
