Monday evening (Sept. 3), we filed a petition before the UN Human Rights Committee to ensure Brazil complies with the interim measure granted by the HRC on August 17 requesting that there are no restrictions to former President Lula’s political rights. The petition asks the Committee to enter another decision reinforcing that the Brazilian government has the obligation to fulfill its international commitments and ensure Lula’s presidential candidacy, his access to the press and to members of his party.
