BRASILIA, Feb 9 (Reuters) - A bribery investigation into Brazilian President Michel Temer regarding the extension of port concessions last year has found no evidence of corruption and could soon conclude no crime was committed, the head of the federal police 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.
