The Second Panel of the Brazilian Supreme Court (STF) scheduled for next Tuesday (June 26) the hearing on a request by the defense team of former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva against his arrest.
Lula is under arrest since April 7 in a case related to an apartment in Guaruji (SP) whose property was allegedly attributed to him.
The hearing was suggested by the justice Edson Fachin, rapporteur for the Car Wash cases in Brasilia. The suggestion to hear and rule on the case was accepted by the justice Ricardo Lewandowski.
In previous appealings, Lula’s defense points out that there is a misunderstanding in the final ruling by the regional federal court which ruled on the case and that the provisional execution of Lula’s sentence constitutes an illegal constraint.
The argument of the defense is that the provisional execution defined by the STF indicates the possibility, but it’s not obligatory.
STF’s Second Panel is composed by the justices Ricardo Lewandowski, Celso de Mello, Gilmar Mendes, Dias Toffoli and Edson Fachin.
