The Brazilian government launches an anti-fraud plan designed to protect workers during preparations for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic games. The plan is known as Jogando Limpo (“Playing It Clean”) and is organized by the Ministry for Justice and Ministry for Sport. The program is designed to oppose cartels and possible agreements between competing companies which could raise the value of state contracts. Minister for Justice Barreto says:
Nothing can be worse than someone taking advantage of these two great opportunities to commit crimes. This is a world phenomenon.
