CURITIBA, Brazil (Reuters) - Brazilian prosecutors have filed unspecified charges against political strategist Joao Santana, the architect of President Dilma Rousseff's 2010 and 2014 campaigns, according to a statement delivered before a news conference on Thursday.

Santana was arrested in February for allegedly receiving bribes in a scheme to divert funds from state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA, part of Brazil's largest-ever corruption investigation.
