SAO PAULO (AP) — The Latest on the fate of former Brazil President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (all times local):
Federal judge Sergio Moro has issued an arrest warrant for former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
Thursday’s warrant comes several hours after the country’s top court denied a request by da Silva to stay out of prison while he appealed a corruption conviction.
Moro gave da Silva 24 hours to present himself to federal police in the southern city of Curitiba.
Last year, Moro convicted da Silva of trading favors with a construction company in exchange for the promise of a beachfront apartment. That conviction was upheld by an appeals court in January.
