STF decides fate of Moro and Lula

STF decides fate of Moro and Lula

June 24th, 2019.

 

Good evening.

 

The Federal Supreme Court will resume a trial which may define the fate of Justice minister Sergio Moro and former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, sentenced by Moro to jail on corruption charges. Moro postponed a session in the Lower House of Congress in which he would comment on the leaked conversations between him and members of the Operation Car Wash taskforce, due to a trip to the US. The Brazilian national soccer team is out of the Women’s World Cup, after losing 2 to 1 to home team favorite France. After the match, Brazilian legend Marta made an emotional plea to supporters and future players. Turkish president Recep Erdoğan suffered a huge drawback after his party lost the elections for mayor in the country’s largest city, Istanbul, to the main opposition party. Two German jet fighters collided in the northeastern part of the country during military exercises; both pilots ejected, but only one has been found alive. Finally, the US unveiled its long-awaited peace plan for the Middle East, which involved huge sums of money to invest in the region – mostly from private investors and donors.

 

Take a look at our highlights.

 

STF decides fate of Moro and Lula

The Second Panel of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) will resume tomorrow a trial which may define the fate of Justice and Public Safety minister Sergio Moro and former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. The session will analyze a habeas corpus writ in which Lula’s defense team accused Moro of acting “partially” and having “political motivation” during the trial where the former president was sentenced to jail. Moro was scheduled to attend a session in the Lower House of Congress this week to discuss the controversial leaked conversations between him and members of the Operation Car Wash taskforce, but, due to a trip to the US, was forced to postpone his testimony.

 

Brazil is out of the Women’s World Cup and Marta makes an emotional plea

Yesterday, the Brazilian national soccer team was knocked out of the Women’s World Cup after losing 2 to 1 to home team France in the last-16 stage. The loss was deeply felt by the players, among them legendary striker Marta. The World Cup all-time leading scorer gave an emotional speech after the match and said she hopes the new generation is able to learn from this game and make the national team fly even higher in the future. “It’s about wanting more, training more, (…) it’s about being ready to play 90 minutes and then 30 minutes more. Women’s soccer depends on you to survive. We’re asking for support,” she said, with tears in her eyes.

 

Opposition party wins in Turkey’s largest city

On Sunday, opposition candidate Ekrem Imamoğlu, of the social democrat Republican People’s Party (CHP), was elected mayor of Istanbul. With this victory, for the first time in 25 years, Turkey’s largest city will not be led by members of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), headed by Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Imamoğlu had already won the election on March 31st over ruling party candidate Binali Yıldırım, but the voting was contested by Erdoğan and his allies, arguing that there had been some irregularities, and a new election took place. Erdoğan began his political career as mayor of Istanbul in 1994, and this humiliating defeat may represent the appearance of strong opposition in the country’s political scene.

 

Two jet fighters collide in mid-air during mission over northeastern Germany

Two German Eurofighter military jets collided in mid-air over northeastern Germany during a mission on Monday, according to Luftwaffe, the country’s Air Force. The accident happened over Lake Mueritz, around 120 kilometers north of Berlin. Both pilots ejected from their aircraft, and one of them was found hanging from a tree canopy. Rescue teams are still looking for the second pilot, but the police reported finding human remains in the region. The pilots were part of the Tactical Air Force Wing 73, known as “Steinhoff,” a fighter wing that specializes in general air defense. A third Eurofighter pilot flying behind them witnessed the collision and reported the ejection of his colleagues.

 

US unveils economic proposal for a Middle East peace plan

The United States government revealed the first details of its long-awaited peace plan for the Middle East. President Donald Trump asked for over US$ 50 billion in foreign investments, in 10 years’ time, in order to overcome differences between Israelis and Palestinians. The new plan stipulates US$ 39.1 billion in donations and US$ 11.6 billion in private capital, but the US government did not commit to any donations, and the plan will be formally presented in a conference in Bahrein next week. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is willing to analyze it, and condemned Palestinian officials who already rejected the proposal, claiming it is pro-Israel.

 

Until tomorrow, good evening.
