Brazil’s ex-president Lula De Silva is facing 12 years of prison term for corruption
Brazil’s ex-president Lula De Silva was ordered by the supreme court to surrender himself to the federal police. He has been convicted for corruption under an investigation being called ‘Operation Car Wash’, which has led to the arrest of many top executives and politicians. De Silva says that these charges against him are politically motivated to prevent him from fighting the election in October this year. Despite his conviction, De Silva continues to lead in opinion polls and his party will continue to support him as their presidential candidate.
