RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The Fifth Panel of the Federal Superior Court (STJ), on Tuesday, September 15th, will rule on Senator Flávio Bolsonaro's appeal to suspend investigations into the alleged salary kickback 'splitting' scheme in his former staff office in Rio's Legislative Assembly. In April, Judge Felix Fischer, rapporteur of the case, refused to suspend investigations. Now, the ruling will be assessed by the five-member panel.
