The former President asked the court to overturn his conviction on imprisonment and the Supreme court agreed to hear the appeal on Tuesday
We are talking about former head of Brazil, Luiz inácio Lula da Silva.
“Brazil’s Supreme court on Tuesday will consider the appeal in the criminal case of ex-President Luiz inácio Lula da Silva, in which he was sentenced to a prison term”, — stated in the message.
The proceedings relate to cases of corruption and money laundering amounting to more than 3.7 million reais, with the help of corrupt schemes in state oil and gas company Petrobras.
The investigation revealed that the construction company OAS implicated in corruption in Petrobras, gave Lula da Silva and his family expensive three-level apartment in the resort town of Guarujá (state of são Paulo).
In this case the politician was sentenced to 12 years in prison, which he began serving in April last year.
Attorneys da Silva said that the accusation is based on the testimony of the head of the OAS Leo Pinheiro, who made a deal with the investigation. The data, based on the testimony of this witness cannot be a sufficient basis for conviction in the absence of other evidence.
On this basis, da Silva filed an appeal and asked the court to overturn the conviction.
In accordance with the Brazilian code of penal enforcement in the case of an appeal petition, the measure may be replaced by corrective labour.
We will remind, ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych has its own plan, which envisaged the creation of “Autonomous Republic of Donbass” in the Ukraine, where he wanted to be Prime Minister.
This is stated in the declassified report of spectracolor USA Robert Mueller Russian intervention in elections in 2016.
To implement this plan Yanukovych tried using a Russian translator and an alleged intelligence officer Konstantin Kilimnik. Kilimnik had to pass this plan through the spin doctor Paul Manafort US President Donald Trump. In July 2016 kilimnik flew to Moscow to Yanukovych.
Recall that the militants made an offer Yanukovych.
As reported Politeka, best friend of Yanukovych returns in Ukraine.
Also Politeka wrote that the trial demonstrated the ability of “proffesor” Yanukovych.
