Brazilian Ex-President Silva Charged in Corruption Probe

Judge Sergio Moro must now decide whether Da Silva will stand trial

Former Brazilian President Lula da Silva speaks during a news conference with international media in Sao Paulo
1 year ago

Brazilian federal investigators have charged former President Luiz Inácio “Lula” da Silva with money laundering and corruption.

The charges announced Wednesday are in connection with a sprawling corruption investigation at state-run oil giant Petrobras.

Da Silva, his wife and five others are accused of illegally benefiting from renovations at a beachfront apartment in the coastal city of Guaruja, in São Paulo state. The improvements were made by constructors involved in the kickback scheme emanating from Petrobras.

Da Silva acknowledges having visited the penthouse but says he never owned it.

Police recommended the charges last month. Judge Sergio Moro must now decide whether Da Silva will stand trial.

In a separate case related to Petrobras, da Silva will go on trial charged with obstruction of justice.
