(TELESUR) – “I knew this decision would come. I just hope I’m alive to see them unmasked,” Lula tweeted.
The TRF-4 judges also denied the defense’s request that the virtual trial be suspended and postponed for a face-to-face session when COVID-19 no longer poses a threat.
“Keeping the sentence is unjust and arbitrary,” Lula’s defense lawyers, who did not have access to the virtual trial, denounced.
“The fact that we were not allowed to be at the trial is a violation of the constitutional right to a broad defense,” attorney Cristiano Zanin Martins stressed.
