A former director of the Brazilian state-owned oil company Petrobras has been sentenced to twelve years in prison, as part of a huge investigation into bribery and corruption. 

Jorge Zelada, who ran Petrobras's international division, was convicted of money-laundering and corruption. 

Another Petrobras manager, Eduardo Costa Musa, and two others were also jailed. 

The men were paid millions of dollars in bribes by a Petrobras contractor. MORE
