The decision of the international organization is declared after six years of analysis of the case in Geneva, indicating as conclusions that the political rights of the former Brazilian president were violated.

The entity’s declaration is considered a legal obligation that must be complied with by the State of that South American nation, in strict compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, ratified by the nation.



According to the Committee, the admission analysis of the Lava Jato case has concluded, but the final decision on the investigation will be presented next May, after a meeting between 18 experts from the agency.

The lawsuit was filed in 2016 by the defense attorneys of former president Lula, in which the irregularity manifested by former judge Moro in violation of the international treaty was specified.

Accordingly, the Human Rights Committee admitted the complaint in October 2016, when they agreed to start the process of analyzing it.

It should be noted that, in order to admit a claim, the body must specify whether the judicial system of the country involved does not have the guarantees of independence required to deal with it.
