Brazil's Alpargatas says Joesley Batista resigns from board

SAO PAULO, May 23 (Reuters) - Brazilian sportswear and shoe maker Alpargatas SA, owned by corruption-ensnared J&F Investimentos, said on Tuesday that Joesley Batista and chairman Vincent Trius had resigned from its board.

Joesley Batista, controlling shareholder of family holding company J&F and its biggest asset JBS SA, the world’s largest meatpacker, last week admitted to bribing thousands of politicians in a plea deal with Brazilian prosecutors.
