RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Globo confirmed yesterday that it will appeal the Rio de Janeiro state court ruling that on Friday banned the disclosure by the station of any document or piece of the confidential proceeding related to the investigation of the salary "splitting" kickback scheme involving Senator Flávio Bolsonaro.
News anchor Flávio Fachel read the following note: "Globo respects judicial rulings, but laments this restriction on freedom of information, since the investigation in question is of interest to society as a whole. Globo will appeal the decision as soon as it is notified."
The measure was granted . . .
