Former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva hands himself to the police over corruption charges

Following his failed appeal over a graft conviction, ex Brazilian President Luiz Lula turned himself in to police in Curitiba to commence a 12-year sentence for corruption after spending two nights at the metalworkers’ union headquarters in defiance of an arrest warrant.

“I’m going to prove my innocence,” Lula told a large crowd of adoring supporters on Saturday at the building where he began his political career.

“Do what you want, the powerful can kill one, two or 100 roses. But they’ll never manage to stop the arrival of spring.”

Military police in Curitiba were later forced to disperse Lula supporters with rubber bullets and tear gas when he arrived at a police station in the city.
