SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – Former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva went on the attack on Wednesday calling his former finance minister and a key member of his staff, Antonio Palocci, cold and calculating. The former leader gave his second testimony before Judge Sergio Moro, after Palocci confirmed Lula had received benefits from contractors.
“[Antonio] Palocci is so clever that he is able to simulate a lie truer than truth,” the former leader told the judge. He's a doctor, he's calculating, he's cold. Nothing is true.”
