To Mr Luis Inácio Lula da Silva
Founder of the Workers’ Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores, PT)
Dear comrade, dear Lula,
On behalf of all the militants of our party, The Socialist Union of Popular Forces, I would like to congratulate you on your release following the Supreme Court decision on November 8th 2019.
During the remainder of this trial, I would like to express our deep solidarity and our hope for a complete exoneration.
The social reforms carried out in Brazil during your presidency continue to be viewed all around the world as models for fighting poverty and inequality. I am certain that you will be able to use your leadership qualities to keep on contributing to the progress of Brazil.
I would like to reiterate our sympathy during this time, and express my wish to strengthen the ties and exchanges between our parties in the near future.
Mr Driss Lachguar
