SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – Former president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, testified on Wednesday before Judge Sergio Moro for more than five hours and denied any knowledge of wrongdoing and obtaining benefits from contractors in the Lava Jato (Carwash) corruption scheme.
Oscillating from irritable to calm, the former leader said there was no proof that he knew of wrongdoings at Petrobras and that he received benefits from his influence with government . . .
