Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel said today on Twitter that the truth is prevailing in the legal action against former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

“The lies of his adversaries cost him prison and endless suffering,” Díaz-Canel wrote, and quoted Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro when he said that reason, morality, truth and the ability to defend an idea are a revolutionary’s weapons. “And truth is imposing itself."

Recently, the Federal Supreme Court (STF) of Brazil authorized the former Brazilian president’s defense lawyers to use as evidence leaked dialogues between former judge Sergio Moro and prosecutors of Operation Lava Jato (Car Wash), which sustains the accusations of bias in the process against Lula da Silva and stands as a major step in the efforts to restore his political rights.

In the anti-corruption operation Lava Jato, former Brazilian judge Sergio Moro convicted Lula da Silva in two different cases with prison sentences of almost 25 years that removed him from the presidential race.

During the closing ceremony of the XXV Sao Paulo Forum in 2019, the Cuban President warned that Lula da Silva, imprisoned under false charges and outrageous legal irregularities, is an example of how far the enemies of the left can go.
