Banco Bradesco SA Chief Executive Officer Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi and two other company executives were indicted by Brazil federal police amid the so-called Zelotes probe into alleged fraud in tax cases. Shares slumped as much as 8 percent.

The indictments were confirmed by federal prosecutors. The accusations are tied to alleged corruption and money laundering, newspaper O Estado de S.Paulo reported earlier Tuesday, without specifying the charges against each executive. Bradesco didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The two-year investigation centers on exposing fraudulent activities involving Brazil’s board of tax appeals, a unit of the finance ministry, and has already snared other business leaders in Brazil. Billionaire Joseph Safra was accused of corruption by prosecutors in March, allegations that were accepted by a Brasilia court the following month. In May, police questioned former finance minister Guido Mantega and indicted 19 people in a phase of the operation tied to steelmaker Gerdau SA.
