UN concludes that former judge was biased in trial against Lula

Similarly, the UN requires the Executive to sufficiently translate, publish and disseminate the content of the decision sent to the defense of former president Lula da Silva, headed by Cristiano Zanin Martínez and Valeska Teixeira Zanin Martins, and to the federal government.

Likewise, the Brazilian State must propose the adoption of preventive measures to avoid similar violations to any other Brazilian citizen, according to information platforms in Brazil.

The lawyer of the PT leader, Cristiano Zanin Martínez declared that “this is a historic victory, not only for President Lula, but also for all those who believe in democracy and the rule of law.”

“This was the position adopted by the UN and we received it with great joy. Because this was a process that we began in 2016, we have been updating it throughout all these years, even being subjected to treatment incompatible with our professional prerogatives by the Lava Jato operation, particularly by former judge Sergio Moro and the prosecutor Deltan Dallagnol and his colleagues in the operation”, limited the defenders of Lula da Silva.

For his part, Lula da Silva declared from his Twitter account that “today I am happy, the decision of the UN court washed my soul. And I just want the press, who spread so many lies about me, to apologize and admit that Sergio Moro and Dallagnol lied to them.”

The Committee’s decision is mandatory and binding, since Brazil is a signatory to the International Covenant on Human and Political Rights.
