Canada’s unions applaud overturning of Lula convictions

Canada’s unions applaud overturning of Lula convictions

Canadian unions welcome the overturning of criminal convictions against former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio
Lula da Silva.

“At last, there is justice for Lula, Brazilian workers and people who have ceaselessly defended his innocence,” says Hassan Yussuff, President of the Canadian Labour Congress, which supported the global Free Lula campaign.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court of Brazil confirmed lower court decisions to annul criminal convictions attained through the massive anti-corruption investigation known as Operation Car Wash, which many saw as politically motivated. Lula was convicted of taking bribes and spent a year and a half behind bars.

“Workers across the world stood with Lula,” says Yussuff, “and now, at last, we celebrate his innocence and freedom.”
