Bolsonaro and Lula Exchange Verbal Attacks

The President first attacked on social media; Lula attacked during his speeches
Nov.11.2019 1:19PM

In his first time talking about former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's release from prison, President Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) called the petista a scoundrel, without mentioning his name. He later said that one should not "compromise with a president."

Bolsonaro posted a video in honor of Justice Minister Sergio Moro - who, when a Lava Jato judge, convicted Lula in 2018 for corruption. Moro, in turn, lamented the ruling of the Supreme Court.

Lula benefited from the Supreme Court decision that, on Thursday (7), changed the case law on the arrest soon after a state-level appeal. But he is still convicted by the case of the Guarujá tríplex. He is accused of taking bribes by the OAS for contracts with Petrobras, which he denies.

His political situation may change. Another court ruling will examine Moro's suspicion. If accepted, these lawsuits against Lula go back to the first instance, cleaning his record and thereby making him eligible to be elected.
