  1. Former President Lula rejected the idea of receiving a presidential pardon on this Tuesday, September 18. This information was communicated by Congressman Wadih Damous (PT-Rio de Janeiro), who visited Lula this afternoon in Curitiba. According to Damous, the ex-President views the granting of a possible pardon as a false confirmation of his guilt and he will fight so that the truth prevails. “He wants his innocence recognized and does not want to hear anything about a pardon,” he said.
