The release of Lula da Silva
Judge Danilo Pereira ordered the imprisonment of former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, after his lawyers formally requested his release this Friday after a ruling adopted by the Supreme Court.
Pereira noted that "There are no grounds for the execution of the sentence". On Thursday by six votes to five the judges of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) decided that a person cannot be found guilty until a final sentence has been handed down, that is, when there are no more judicial remedies in process. The former union leader still has pending resources, so he has been released.
The former president (2003-2010), 74, was from April 2018 a penalty of 8 years and 10 months in prison for money laundering and passive corruption in the case of a triplex department, under the ‘Lava Jato’.
