Brussels, 25 January 2018 (ITUC OnLine): Trust in the rule of law in Brazil suffered a severe blow on Wednesday as an appeal court failed to provide former President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva with a fair trial. The court ignored all evidence of Lula´s innocence and proceeded to uphold a sentence handed by a lower court, increasing it to more than 12 years.
Lula´s popularity and chances of winning this year´s presidential election is seen as a key factor in the appeal court´s decision.
