Show TV exposes two government employees, one of them a senior official in the prime minister's office, accepting bribes in a live broadcast. The corrupt officials were filmed by secret cameras as they negotiated with a journalist posing as a businessman anxious to strike a deal. The bribe-takers agreed to help secure state funding for a tourism project in return for payments of more than $140,000, and were arrested by plain-clothes policemen after they promised to help the bogus businessman to get his hands on government funds.
