Brazil annuls decision on now defunct Banco do Estado do Rio de Janeiro

Brazil's National Financial System Resources Board, CRSFN, has annulled a 2010 decision made by financial regulator CVM on the now defunct state-run Banco do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, or Berj, according to a report in Valor Econômico.

The case, which the board has now sent to revaluation, reportedly found irregularities in the sale of real estate loans from the bank to Rio de Janeiro's social security fund RioPrevidência, but has since then lingered in appeal courts.

After the original case, CVM imposed record fines of more than 500 million Brazilian reais, the report said.

As of Dec. 28, US$1 was equivalent to 3.30 Brazilian reais.
