Federal Judge Sérgio Moro, tasked with overseeing probes under Operation Car Wash at first instance, received representatives from Transparency International, an anti-corruption NGO. The meeting took place on Monday (Jun. 27) in the southern city of Curitiba.

During the gathering, Moro and José Carlos Ugaz, the organization's head discussed cooperation efforts in probing over crimes committed by companies and individuals that received bribes overseas through money funneling schemes at Petrobras.

In an interview following the meeting, Ugaz announced the creation of an anti-corruption center in Brazil—a work group aimed at developing tools to help fight corruption in the country as well as in Latin America. Ugaz is also expected to meet with prosecutors from the task force of the Federal Prosecution Service, in Paraná.

According to data from the Prosecutor-General's Office (PGR), a total 108 requests for international cooperation have been submitted, along with $194 million repatriated as part of the probes conducted by federal law enforcement agents in Curitiba under Operation Car Wash.
