Swazi Observer - - NEWS -

CURITIBA - Brazil's once hugely pop­u­lar pres­i­dent Luis Ina­cio Lula da Silva un­der­went a new grilling on Wed­nes­day by the coun­try's Chief An­tiCor­rup­tion Judge, Ser­gio Moro, in a case that could de­cide whether Lula can re­turn to power. Lula, a fron­trun­ner in the Oc­to­ber 2018 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion de­spite mul­ti­ple cor­rup­tion charges, was greeted by sev­eral hun­dred left­ist sup­port­ers on ar­rival at the court­house in the south­ern city of Curitiba. Demon­stra­tors wear­ing red shirts crowded around the 71-year-old, shout­ing en­cour­age­ment. About 1 500 po­lice of­fi­cers kept a close watch.
