Pope Francis Tells Judges to Follow Example of Jesus, Who Never Negotiates Truth

Some have interpreted the message in the Pope's video as a reference to former judge and current Justice Minister Sérgio Moro, who stands accused by Brazilian media of having tried ex-President Lula in an unfair and biased manner.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, posted a message on his Twitter asking everyone who is part of the justice system to behave with integrity to fight injustice.
