SAO PAULO, March 8 Brazilian federal police were
carrying out search and arrest warrants on Wednesday to look
into the suspected buying off of witnesses in the Greenfield

real ($60.9 million) eucalyptus wood supply contract was used to
buy the silence of a witness who could provide evidence in the

subsidiary of the Batista family holding company J&F
Investimentos SA which also owns JBS.
