Ex-President Lula's unfair trial may turn him into Brazilian Mandela

The result of the trial of Lula’s defense in court constitutes a measure of suppression of political opponents from the right-wing forces, RISS expert Dmitry Burykh considers. He reminded that Lula’s original sentence was increased from nine-and-a-half years to 12 years. If you get acquainted with the indictment, “it will become clear that no credible evidence of guilt has been produced, and his incrimination was based largely on the testimony of witnesses in exchange for concessions from the court.”
