Brazil: Thousands march in support of former President Lula in Rio

Thousands marched on the streets of Rio de Janeiro on Friday, in support of former Brazilian President Luis Ignacio Lula da Silva. The Supreme Court of Brazil confirmed that 72-year-old Lula will serve a prison sentence directly after the rejection of his first appeal by a vote of 6:5 and he has been ordered to hand himself into the authorities. Lula was sentenced to a 12-year jail term for... Еще corruption and money laundering in a case known as Operation Car Wash. He was convicted of receiving bribes. He now needs to overturn the ruling before Brazilian presidential candidates are officially announced in August as a conviction would sink his election ambitions, but he will remain in jail until such a ruling is confirmed.
