EX-Brazilian President Lula Jailed, Gets 24Hours To Surrender To Police

 Former Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has been jailed. Lula is to start his 12-year prison term from Friday. He was also given 24 hours to surrender to police by Judge Sergio Moro, head of Brazil’s huge “Car Wash” anti-graft probe. The sentencing was a huge surprise for everyone as Lula’s lawyers thought the former two-term president had until Tuesday before he’d go to jail.  The 72-year old Lula, was at a time one of the most popular politicians on the planet.  Judge Moro’s office gave Lula the 24-hours grace due to his stature as a former president.  Photo Credit: Getty
