Supreme Court justice Celso de Mello rejected on Tuesday (14) an injunction that sought to remove recently indicated minister for infrastructure investment, Wellington Moreira Franco, whose name has been mentioned in a corruption investigation. The rule also allows Mr. Franco to maintain immunity from prosecution by lower courts. The injunction was filed by na opposition party  that sought to annul the new minister’s appointment arguing that Temer was trying to shield him from prosecution.
