Description

Local councilmen in Brazil were collecting per diems paid out to enable politicians to attend qualification courses presented in other countries. Using a hidden camera, the reporter passed himself off as a politician as the others admitted they were only signing up for these courses to collect the money while skipping the classes and taking a vacation. As a result of the investigation, many city councils in the southern Brazil state of Rio Grande do Sul cut back the payments.
