SAO PAULO/BRASILIA (Reuters) - Sergio Moro, a corruption-busting judge, has not yet decided whether he will accept an offer to serve as justice minister in the government of Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro, two people with knowledge of the matter said on Wednesday.

A columnist for Estado de S. Paulo reported on the newspaper’s website on Wednesday that Moro will accept an offer from Bolsonaro to run the Justice Ministry with expanded powers over corruption and public safety, without citing a source.
