Brazil: Judge Annuls Convictions of Ex-President Lula

Paving Way for a 2022 run against Jair Bolsonaro

Luis Inacio Lula da Silva

HAVANA TIMES – In Brazil, a judge has annulled all convictions against former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. In 2018, Lula was sentenced to 12 years in prison over a disputed corruption and money laundering conviction handed down by conservative Judge Sérgio Moro, a former ally of far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Moro allegedly colluded with prosecutors to seek Lula’s conviction.

Lula has long maintained his innocence and has vowed to challenge Bolsonaro in the 2022 elections. At the time of his imprisonment, Lula was leading the presidential polls.

    When Judges are selected, they should not be selected because of their political persuasion or affiliation as in the USA? They should be selected because of their credibility, their ability and their capability “TO DISPENSE PROPER JUSTICE.” Comrade Lula da Silva was sentenced to 12 years imprisonmeent by a right winged Judge who was affiliated to a right winged party, whose President Comrade Lula was running against. Because he fights the CAUSE of the WORKING CLASS in Brazil, he was banished to prison to keep him out of the political race.

    Do you see now, why there will always be the Maduro’s, Ortego’s, Fidel Castro’s, to fight for the oppressed and exploited WORKERS whom the right wingers despise? As long as capitalism is around, there will always be INJUSTICES of this nature, but no prison bars can REVERSE and DILUTE the CONTINUED STRUGGLE of the WORKING CLASS for their TOTAL FREEDOM, so that they could be MASTERS OF THER OWN DESTINY!

    The time spent in prison will not weaken Comrade Lula but would STRENGTHEN and STIFFEN (become more unyielding) his RESOVE to FIGHT even harder for the TOTAL LIBERATION of the WORING CLASS. I am happy to see that JUSTICE has been granted to the Comrade, for you can never keep a GOOD MAN down. “HISTORY WILL ALWAYS ABSOLVE HIM!!!”
