Brazil’s leftist former president Luiz Lula da Silva will learn whether he goes to prison during a hearing on January 24, 2018, an appeals court has said.
Lula was sentenced in July to 9.5 years behind bars after being convicted of corruption in Brazil’s huge “Car Wash” graft scandal.
The result of his appeal could decide whether Lula can take part in October presidential elections in which he is currently the frontrunner.
