BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian President Michel Temer on Monday named an attorney to replace the former labour minister, who was removed from his post this month due to a corruption investigation.

Lawyer Caio Luiz de Almeida Vieira de Mello will serve as Brazil's new labor minister, according to a statement from the president's office.
