Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic is one of the countries that signed a legal cooperation agreement with Brazil in the Lava Jato corruption scandal that includes the confessions by Odebrecht executives to having paid US$92.0 million in bribes to Dominican officials from 2013 to 2016.

A report by Brazilian newspaper Estadao says the Dominican Republic is among the countries to which Brazil requested information to continue widening the Lava Jato investigation, which has been carried out over three years by that country's Federal Attorney's Office and with the support of judicial officials of Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia.

Estadao reports that the agreement allows Brazil to request information from the signatory countries and vice versa.
