Brazil prosecutors to investigate if J&F violated leniency deal

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors in the Brazilian capital have opened an investigation into whether holding company J&F Investimentos SA violated the terms of a leniency deal, press representatives for the prosecutors office said on Monday.

    J&F Investimentos, which manages the fortune of the Batista family, including a controlling stake in JBS SA (JBSS3.SA), the world’s largest meatpacker, agreed in May to pay a record fine of 10.3 billion reais ($3.2 billion) for its involvement in corruption.
