Ex-Brazilian leader launches informal presidential campaign despite corruption charges
  • 6 years ago
Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio 'Lula' da Silva does not seem to be phased by corruptions charges levied against him as he prepares to tour the country.
He will kick off the fourth stage of the so-called 'Caravan of Hope' next Tuesday in Brazil's southern states until March 7th to whip up support for his presidential bid.
Lula insists he's innocent and also has his party's backing for the presidency, despite a possible ban from running in the October election.
He's accused of taking bribes from a construction company in exchange for government favors, along with other corruption allegations.
