(ANSA) – RIO DE JANEIRO, NOV 16 – The new biography of the former president of Brazil, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (2003-2010), arrives today in bookstores, after about 170 hours of interviews with the journalist Fernando Morais. The book traces the trajectory of the leader of the Workers’ Party from his experience as a trade unionist, passing through his first candidacy for the presidency of the Republic, in 1980, and ending with accusations of corruption against the former worker-president in recent years.
The 447 pages of the volume describe in detail the moments of tension Lula experienced shortly before surrendering herself to the federal police. But he overlooks the complaints against him by the investigation ‘Lava Jato’ (Car wash), the Mani Pulite verdeoro. According to an analysis carried out by the Folha de S. Paulo newspaper, there are only succinct descriptions of the cases in which the former head of state was indicted.
Lula had been sentenced in three degrees of trial and was unable to stand as a candidate in the 2018 elections, won by Jair Bolsonaro. However, at the beginning of the year, the Supreme Court annulled the sentences for “partiality” of the then first instance judge, Sergio Moro, making him eligible again in 2022. (ANSA).
