Luiz Eduardo was sentenced to eight years and nine months imprisonment for passive corruption and money laundering. And Duke also had his sentence of six years and eight months of imprisonment for unchanged passive corruption.
The 8th Panel of the court unanimously gave partial relief to the appeals only to clarify some defendants’ doubts as to why their arguments were not upheld by federal judges when they tried in September condemned The decision was made in accordance with the vote of the rapporteur for actions relating to Car Wash in TRF4, federal judge Joao Pedro Gebran Neto.
