BRASILIA/RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) – Brazilian police made public on Tuesday an investigation into corruption involving three senators and three lawmakers that stemmed from a related probe into major meatpacker JBS SA.

The police carried out 24 search-and-seizure warrants in the early morning hours, they said in a written statement, as part of an investigation into money laundering and corruption, among other crimes. The inquiry is looking into ill-gotten gains from a “large meatpacking company.”
