Database powered by Neo4j. What is it?
Idalécio de Castro Rodrigues de Oliveira is a Portuguese corporate executive who, according to Brazil's attorney general, supplied money that was paid as a suspected bribe to Eduardo Cunha, the president of Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies, currently under indictment for alleged corruption. De Oliveira is the chief executive of the Lusitania Group, which purchased certain oil licenses in West Africa in 2011 and entered into a partnership with Petrobras, Brazil’s oil giant, which is currently at the heart of the country’s largest-ever corruption probe. Cunha has repeatedly denied accusations against him and recently told reporters, "I am not worried… I will continue to work.” .

In the data

Idalécio de Oliveira owned a conglomerate he called the "Lusitania Group," made up of 14 companies incorporated in the British Virgin Islands from 2003 to 2011, with interests in oil, gas and mining operations. In October 2015, a report by Brazil's attorney general connected De Oliveira to Brazil’s Lava Jato ("Car Wash") corruption scandal. In 2011, Brazil's state-owned energy company Petrobras bought a 50 percent stake of an oil field in Benin controlled by de Oliveira’s companies. Twelve of his 14 offshore companies were incorporated just months before his agreement with Petrobras. According to the attorney general's report, in May 2011, de Oliveira wired $10 million to a Swiss bank account held by João Augusto Rezende Henriques, a lobbyist for Brazilian party PMDB, through Acona International Investments Limited, a Seychelles company also registered by Mossack Fonseca in 2010. Over the next several weeks, the report said, Rezende Henriques wired $1.5 million to a Swiss bank account controlled by Eduardo Cunha, president of Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies and a member since 2003.

Response

De Oliveira did not respond to repeated requests for comment. Cunha's press office released a statement that said he vehemently denies the allegations and added that he "defies anyone to prove that he is related to any offshore company."
