The Justice of São Paulo decreed this Friday (20) the breach of bank secrecy of medical student at the University of São Paulo (USP) Alicia Muller. The Civil Police had requested the break last Tuesday (17).
The USP medical student is suspected of having embezzled almost R$ 1 million from her class’s graduation.
Now investigations will trace the path of money and check if there are others involved who may have benefited.
According to the version that Alicia told the graduation committee at the beginning of this year, after having withdrawn the BRL 927,000 that would be used to pay for the graduation parties, supposedly she would have invested around BRL 800,000 in an investor, which would have turned out to be a scam.
THE CNN , she stated via WhatsApp that, after an investment “which did not work out”, she tried to get her graduation money back through Lotofácil bets – a type of lottery run by Caixa Econômica Federal. She did not detail how much money she invested in these bets.
In addition to being investigated for the graduation money, Alicia is also the target of an investigation by the Specialized Police in Criminal Investigations (Deic) of São Bernardo do Campo for embezzlement and money laundering.
