Chief Justice Joaquim Barbosa presides over a session on the "mensalao" scandal, or big monthly payment case, at the Supreme Court in Brasilia November 13, 2013. The session was held to review the appeals of those convicted for diverting at least $35 million in public money to bribe legislators to support former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's minority government after it took office in 2003.
