Brazil judge rules to keep da Silva in jail after dispute

  • Da Silva began serving a 12-year prison sentence in April on a corruption conviction in a case linked to the country’s massive corruption probe.
  • The dispute underscored how contentious da Silva’s jailing has become in Brazil, where some see it as proof that no one is above the law and others feel the charges against the former president were trumped up to prevent him from running for office again.
