SAO PAULO May 12 A Brazilian court on Friday
confirmed two founders of JBS SA, the world's largest
meatpacker, were targeted in a criminal investigation related to
loans received by the company from development bank BNDES,
according to a court document.
The court also confirmed an order to bring brothers Joesley
and Wesley Batista, the chairman and chief executive of JBS, in
