Brazil Leader Asks To Be Investigated

Brazil's President Michel Temer has asked the Supreme Court to proceed with an investigation against him for obstruction of justice and corruption.

His lawyers say that a secret recording that appears to incriminate him has been edited 70 times.

On Saturday Mr Temer filed a petition at the Supreme Court to have the investigation suspended.

But his lawyers now say they want the investigation to go ahead to have the president's name cleared.

His legal team hired an audio expert, who concluded that the tape would not stand up as evidence in a court of law.

"We want this investigation to be concluded as soon as possible," said one of his lawyers, Gustavo Guedes.

"The only evidence against him, the recording, is useless," added Mr Guedes.
