Peachymin: His punishment probably won’t be that long. It’s very common in Brazil for people that are being arrested to use “atenuantes”, which diminish the time spent in jail according to variables. For example, I steal something. If I’m poor and have a reason to steal it, I’m given an atenuante, which will lessen the penalty.
Being the ex-president, he will be able to hire the best lawyers money and fame can buy, who will find any hole in the law they can find and know every single atenuante that can be used.

Consultor Imobiliario David Vieira: Very happy to see Lula in Jail . He did a lot of crime and it s already proved.

Adam W: Innocent! Usa is guilty for making up this!

Ayres Narita: Theater... He's a crook... Supporters? A irrelevant amount of people... Brazil massively supports his imprisonment... The media worldwide seems not to show his 80% rejection and seems not to show how deceptive he can be... He and he's party fools the simple folks into soldiers with lies, promessing the impossible and passing as the 2018 Jesus himself...

Hildugard: Huzzah!.

Portobelini: the correct thing is to put a bullet in his forehead as china does with corrupt ones.

Ken: He is not serving US interests in Brazil - this is what happens by US everywhere
