A court in Brazil has unanimously rejected an appeal by the former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who was convicted last year of corruption and money laundering. The three judges said the former president had broken the law by accepting a seafront apartment from a construction company involved in a major corruption scheme. They have increased his original sentence form nine-and-a-half years to just over 12 years in jail. A senior party adviser in Lula's Brazilian Workers' Party Diegost Gundoner told the BBC the case against Lula was a part of a wider campaign against democracy by the Judiciary.
巴西法院一致同意驳回前总统路路易斯·伊纳西奥·卢拉·达席尔瓦（Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva）的上诉请求，去年他因腐败和洗钱罪名被判决有罪。三名法官表示前总统因从一个建筑公司收受了一座海滨公寓而触犯了法律，这家建筑公司涉嫌一项重大腐败操作。他们已将前任总统最初的9年半刑期增至12年以上。卢拉所在巴西工人党的一名资深顾问迪耶古斯特·戈多拉告诉BBC，此次针对卢拉的案件是司法机构所开展的大范围反民主活动的一部分。
What the Brazilian Workers' Party understand is that this goes beyond Lula's case as well. Relief in the country where the Judiciary is taking actions that go beyond our constitution and that can be replicated by other judges in different cases against other Brazilians as well. So, we perceive this not as only the defense of Lula but the defense of our democracy and the defense of our laws.

After the sentencing, the US Olympic Committee announced an independent third party would examine how an abuse of this proportion could gone undetected for so long.
