BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's Federal Police will likely recommend shelving an investigation into alleged bribery of President Michel Temer in return for extending port concessions last year because it has turned up no evidence, its chief told Reuters on Friday.

Director General Fernando Segovia said in an interview that police found no proof that a decree signed last year by Temer favored logistics firm Rodrimar SA, which operates services in the Port of Santos, Latin America's busiest container port.
