Brazil central bank denies early leak of interest rate decisions

BRASILIA, May 18 (Reuters) - Brazil’s central bank said on Thursday there is no way its interest rate decisions could be leaked to anyone before they are officially announced.

In a statement, the bank responded to local media reports that President Michel Temer had tipped off the chairman of meatpacking giant JBS SA about a rate decision - one of several accusations leveled in blockbuster plea bargain testimony revealed on Thursday.
