On the day, Minister Ricardo Lewandowski, of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), suspended the last criminal action against Lula within the framework of the Lava Jato judicial operation.
It is about the alleged influence peddling in the purchase of Gripen combat aircraft, manufactured in Sweden, destined for the Air Force.
The request for suspension was made by Lula’s defense, which criticized the actions of Lava Jato and warned there was a plan to use the right to attack the PT leader and his defense.
The former president’s lawyers used, in the appeal, leaked messages from the former Lava Jato coordinator Deltan Dallagnol, in which he “tries to build a complaint”.
During 2021, Lula, who recovered his political rights, was able to regain his eligibility and also record an impressive 22 victories in the STF.
