Former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s defense filed, on Friday (April 13), another appeal before the STF (Federal Supreme Court) requesting the Court to annul the arrest warrant issued by federal judge Sérgio Moro. As evidently clear, when the TRF4 ordered the early execution of the sentence of imprisonment, not all appeals had been filed before said appellate court; in addition, the appellate decision on the first motion for clarification had not been published yet. Therefore, in this appeal filed before the STF aiming at the annulment of the arrest warrant issued against former President Lula, we requested the Court to either reconsider the decision that denied the injunction or send the case to the Panel.
