Brazil’s ex-President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva convicted of corruption

Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has been convicted of corruption charges and sentenced to nine and a half years in prison.

The judge ruled he could remain free pending an appeal.

Lula has rejected claims that he received an apartment as a bribe in a corruption scandal linked to state oil company Petrobras.

He says the trial is politically motivated and has strongly denied any wrongdoing.

The case is the first of five charges against him.

President Michel Temer is reiterating Brazil's support for the Paris climate agreement.

Temer said during a ceremony Monday that climate change was "a real problem" that had to be tackled.

In his words, the effects of climate change "have already been felt in the world and in Brazil."

Temer last September ratified Brazil's participation in the accord that includes drastically reducing carbon emissions over the next decades. Brazil is home to the Amazon rain forest.

Nationwide Strike Threatens To Paralyse Brazil As President May Weaken Labour Laws


Brazil President Michel Temer

Brazilian unions called nationwide strikes today to protest President Michel Temer's efforts to reduce social security benefits and weaken labor laws, with disruption expected to road and rail transport, factories and schools. Many workers were expected to heed the strike call, due in part to anger about reforms that will force many Brazilians to work for years longer before drawing a pension, but also because the strike will extend a holiday weekend ahead of Labor Day on Monday.

If successful, the protest would mark Brazil's first general strike in more than two decades.
