Former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva on Thursday lodged a formal complaint with the United Nations against a corruption-fighting judge. Lawyers defending Lula lodged the complaint with the United Nations Human Rights Commission, saying Brazilian Federal Judge Sérgio Moro has violated the ex-president’s human rights. They said Moro violated Lula’s rights by releasing sealed testimony and evidence, including tape recordings of telephone conversations. They said Moro acted illegally in issuing a temporary arrest warrant against Lula earlier this year. In that episode, Lula was detained for questioning during several hours and then released. The former president is under investigation for alleged obstruction of justice and conspiracy.
