The actual blood pact was made between Palocci and Car Wash. Palocci is in prison and under pressure from the prosecutors, who have failed to produce any evidence against Lula thus resorting to informants and potential informants to fill that void.

Lula has never discussed undue advantages with Palocci, Odebrecht, or any other person or company.

There are countless contradictions in the testimony given by Palocci yesterday, and it collides with his previous testimony given to Judge Sérgio Moro – in May this year. It also collides with the testimonies given by other people who have been mentioned by Palocci, such as Emílio Odebrecht, who denied to Judge Sérgio Moro having had meetings with Lula to discuss undue advantages.
