SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian federal police served 100 search-and-seizure warrants on Thursday as part of an investigation into alleged graft involving a pension fund for post office workers.

A police statement did not name any targets of the investigation, but said they included managers at the Postalis fund, executives at a foreign financial institution, listed companies and risk-assessment firms.

Postalis, which came under federal management last year due to alleged fraud, suffered losses worth 6 billion reais (1.33 billion pounds) as a result of embezzlement, the statement said, forcing post office workers to increase their retirement savings.

Postalis representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
