Brazil's former president was questioned by police Friday as part of an investigation into a scheme in a government-affiliated oil company.
Oil giant Petrobras brought in a hefty sum to Brazil's economy, but alleged corruption involving overcharging contracts and bribes is thought to have eventually caused the company to lose about $2 billion.
Former Brazilian leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva faces questions about the scandal. He's accused of using the money to pay for bribes and political campaigns.
