SAO PAULO, May 26 (Reuters) - Maria Silvia Bastos has resigned as head of BNDES due to personal reasons, the Brazilian development bank said in a statement on Friday.
BNDES director Ricardo Ramos will take over her position on an interim basis, the statement said. BNDES has been ensnared in recent months in a mounting political scandal over investments in JBS SA, the world's largest meatpacker, years before Bastos took over at the helm of the bank.
