The fifth panel of the Brazilian Superior Court of Justice reduced the punishment of ex-president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in the Guarujá (SP) triplex case, opening up a way for him to be freed on house arrest this year.

The unanimous decision maintains the conviction, but lowers the penalty from 12 years and one month of prison to eight years, 10 months and 20 days.

The Criminal Execution Law allows for those who have completed one-sixth of their sentence to be transferred to house arrest. With this decision, Lula should be released by the end of September.

Lula was sentenced for corruption and money laundering and has been imprisoned since April of last year.

Without a doubt the first honest President they get, after this fascist is gone, will expunge this filthy, evil crime against President Lula from his well-established history, and completely exonerate him. Hoping charges will be brought against the pro-dictatorship cabal which perpetrated this on Lula to prevent the front-runner from winning the election, again.
