    FORMER Brazilian Congress speaker Eduardo Cunha was arrested on Wednesday as part of the “Car Wash” probe into corruption at state oil firm Petrobras.

    Prosecutors said they had requested Mr Cunha’s detention in the capital Brasilia on the grounds that he represented a threat to the integrity of the investigation and there was a risk of him absconding.

    They also asked for the freezing of his bank accounts, which hold deposits totalling more than £50 million.

    Mr Cunha, who led the legislative coup that led to the impeachment of left-wing president Dilma Rousseff over minor budget-juggling allegations, called his arrest “absurd.”

    The PMDB party comrade of unelected President Michel Temer was forced to resign as speaker of the lower house Chamber of Deputies in July over allegations that he had taken millions of pounds’ worth of bribes in return for lucrative tenders.
