Brazilian prosecutors have launched an investigation into allegations of corruption and overpricing in the construction of a stadium used during last year's football World Cup, SIA reprots citing the BBC.
They believe building construction giant Odebrecht inflated the price of the Arena Pernambuco by $12m (£7.8m).
Federal Police have carried out raids in several Brazilian cities.
The company's president, Marcelo Odebrecht, is in jail in connection with a separate corruption scandal.
He was charged last month with corruption and money laundering for allegedly paying bribes to secure contracts with the state-owned oil company, Petrobras.
Mr Odebrecht has denied the charges and said he would appeal.
