Brazil's Ex-president Says He's 'ready' for Jail in New Book

Friday, 16 March 2018 02:38 PM

SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazil's former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is launching a book in which he says he is 'ready' to go to jail and serve a 12 year and one month sentence on corruption charges.

The book entitled "Truth Will Triumph: The People Know Why I am Being Condemned," is scheduled to go on sale early Friday evening in Sao Paulo.

Da Silva's conviction was upheld in January, and another court has denied his request for an injunction that would prevent him from being imprisoned as he appeals the ruling to the Superior Federal Tribunal.

That means it is possible that da Silva could soon begin serving his sentence, even though he is the front-runner for the 2018 presidential election.
