Lula’s trial

Published on: 10 March, 2021

Brazil’s former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva held a presser at the Metallurgy Union Headquarters. It follows the suspension Tuesday by Brazil’s Supreme Court of a vote on the impartiality of former judge Sergio Moro in corruption cases in which Lula da Silva was involved.

Supreme Court Justice Kassio Nunes Marques requested to review the case records and the vote was suspended. The session on Tuesday followed an appeal by Lula’s legal team alleging that Moro, the former judge who sentenced him, was not impartial in overseeing investigations of the former president.
