Brazil judge orders Lula to remain in prison overturning earlier ruling to release former president

Brazil judge orders Lula to remain in prison overturning earlier ruling to release former presidentA Brazilian appeals court judge on Sunday quashed a fellow judge’s bombshell ruling ordering the release of jailed former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, in a day of legal tumult that comes just months before the South American country’s presidential vote. Though he is serving a 12-year sentence for corruption, the wildly popular leftist Lula, 72, continues to lead opinion polls ahead of October’s election and has vowed his name will be on the ballot. In his Sunday afternoon ruling, Judge Pedro Gebran Neto overturned a shock order to free Lula, which dropped just hours earlier from Judge Rogerio Favreto at an appeals court in Porto Alegre – the same one that had ordered the ex-president’s arrest. Mr Favreto, the weekend duty judge, had ruled in favour of several deputies of Lula’s Workers’ Party, who on Friday submitted a habeas corpus application on the former president’s behalf, arguing he had been illegally imprisoned. On the heels of the first ruling, top anti-corruption judge Sergio Moro – who originally sentenced Lula in July 2017 – said Mr Favreto did not have the power to secure the leftist’s release. Supporters of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva demonstrate outside the Federal Police where he is detainee in Curitiba Credit: Franklin De Freitas/AFP Gebran Neto followed suit, instructing federal police at a prison in Curitiba to keep Lula behind bars. Lula has been imprisoned since April following his conviction for accepting a seaside apartment as a bribe from Brazilian construction company OAS. He has insisted on his innocence and branded the corruption accusations a political conspiracy aimed at thwarting his electoral aspirations. After ruling Brazil from 2003 to 2011, Lula left office with sky-high ratings following an economic boom and widely praised social programs to reduce poverty. “Lula free now!” read the popular politician’s Twitter account after Favreto’s order, praising the short-lived hope for “the end of the illegal imprisonment of Lula.” But even if released, Lula could see his candidacy invalidated by the South American country’s electoral court. Lula livre já! https://t.co/uYQbEDioaI— Lula (@LulaOficial) July 8, 2018 Brazilian courts have repeatedly stifled his many efforts to secure release. Just last month the South American country’s Supreme Court withdrew Lula’s appeal from its agenda, after a lower appeals court ruled the prison sentence could not be referred to the top bench. The lower court said the top chamber should only handle cases related to possible constitutional violations, a standard which Lula’s request did not meet. Lula’s fall from grace Prosecutors in May filed new graft charges against Lula, his ex-economy minister and two other political figures allegedly promised $40 million by the Odebrecht conglomerate, which is also linked to corruption scandals elsewhere in Latin America. The charges are part of operation “Car Wash,” Brazil’s biggest ever anti-graft crackdown.It has targeted several former presidents, current President Michel Temer and politicians from all major parties. Federal Deputies Paulo Pimenta and Wadi Damous who filed the Habeas Corpus petition to release the former Brazilian president  Credit: Franklin De Freitas/AFP Investigators discovered that politicians and their parties were allegedly taking money from Odebrecht and other big companies in exchange for political favours and contracts with state oil company Petrobras. Yet Lula and his supporters remain steadfast in their goal to take back control of Brazil’s executive branch. Just last week the former president – who had been writing football commentary from jail, which a veteran Brazilian sports journalist and leftist sympathizer then read on air – ceased commenting on the World Cup to comply with electoral rules forbidding potential candidates from making television and radio appearances after June 30.
