Ex Brazilian President To Begin 12-Year Jail Term

A Brazilian judge on Thursday issued a warrant to send former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva to prison after an appeals court said he must start a 12-year term for corruption. Lula was given until Friday at 5 p.m. local time (2000 UTC) to hand himself over to police in the city of Curitiba, according to a court document.

The ex-leader had made requests to delay the sentence while pursuing appeals against his conviction, which was handed down last July. But the Supreme Court denied his claim earlier on Thursday.
In January, an appeals court lengthened the 72-year-old's original nine year sentence to 12-years and one month. Lula was found guilty of taking bribes from an engineering firm in return for help landing contracts with state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA.

His likely imminent jailing throws into chaos his plan to stage a comeback in October's presidential election first round. Surveys had put him as the comfortable favorite, and his apparent downfall will throw the race wide open.

Okey; Sir, It's suite sad. It is a lesson not just for the rich and famous but for everyday people to be careful with their dealings. Law does not respect or exempt anyone from prosecution . @Amarachi; I pray so

Daniel Orji

Likewise south Korea former female president, has been sent to 24 years in prison! Our case here is different, NASS bids for life time immunity

Daniel Orji

@Endy, that's for the other countries of the world, law in Nigeria respect, exempt, and even select people!

Abbey Olu

I just hope one day we will get there

Payback Penalty

Isiaq Zakariyah

We pray to get there but not in a country where the citizens will take arms in support of a brethren who looted the country's treasury. Many of us are not just, we are too tribalistically sentimental coupled with religious bigotry

Jeremiah Ademolu

In the 60s and early 70s Nigeria are far better than Brazil, all they produced then is sugarcane, while we producing cocoa, rubber, fruits etc, but In 2018 Nigeria is far behind same country that used to see us as giant... Who bewitched our politicians, the day we start behaving like civilized world is the day our freedom begin. What a shame! 😔😔😔😔

surrender with police
Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has missed the deadline for turning himself in to authorities.

The lawyers of Brazil's disgraced former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva were negotiating the terms of his surrender with federal police on Friday after he missed the 5 p.m. (2000 UTC/GMT) deadline to hand himself in.
Lula was supposed to report to local authorities in the city of Curitiba , where a relatively luxurious cell was waiting to usher him in to a 12-year prison sentence for his corruption conviction.
It's now likely that Lula will turn himself in later on Saturday after first attending a Mass for his late wife. Police in Sao Paulo did not say if they would try to forcibly take the former president into custody.
Lula's lawyer Jose Roberto Batochio told newspaper
Folha de Sao Paulo he would not resist arrest, "but he will not go to the slaughterhouse with his head bowed."

Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was flown on Saturday evening to the prison in the southern city of Curitiba where he is due to serve his 12-year sentence for corruption
The former two-term president landed in a police helicopter on the roof of federal police headquarters in Curitiba, where Brazil's
anti-graft "Car Wash" investigation is based.
Demonstrators outside let off fireworks and riot police fired tear gas as Lula was taken into the prison. Eight people were lightly injured, including one hit by a rubber bullet, the fire department said.
Lula handed himself over to police custody earlier on Saturday, following a tense standoff between his supporters and the authorities.
