The plane crash that killed the supreme court justice at the centre of Brazilís biggest corruption scandal was not caused by mechanical problems, according to a preliminary analysis of flight recordings that will further fuel already intense speculation over the cause of the incident.

Communications by the pilot suggested there was no sense of panic inside the cockpit before the small-turbo prop plunged into the sea off Rio de Janeiro State last Thursday, killing all five people aboard.

The most prominent of the victims was Teori Zavascki, who had been overseeing Operation Lava Jato (Car Wash), a politically explosive investigation of bribery and corrupt links between senior politicians and Brazilís biggest corporations, notably the oil firm Petrobras and construction company Odebrecht.

Zavascki had just returned from vacation and was shortly due to rule on the eligibility of plea bargain testimonies by 77 Odebrecht executives, which are thought likely to implicate many of the most powerful figures in Brazil and its Latin American neighbours.

This incident is no small matter, is it? It should give anyone instant awareness there are some people who take politics very seriously, the greedy criminals who intend to live like super-wealthy predators, at the public's total expense.
