Brazil’s Opposition Party Wants Probe of Alleged Cuba Money for Lula

The Brazilian Social Democratic Party (PSDB) wants Brazil’s Electoral Supreme Court (TSE) to investigate the alleged financial contribution by the government of Cuba to President Lula’s 2002 campaign, as published last week by Brazilian Veja magazine.

The Liberal Front Party (PFL) may also join the request. Both the Workers Party (PT – President Lula’s party) and the government vehemently denied accusations.

According to Senator Tasso Jereissati, from the PSDB, this is the second measure taken by the PSDB in this regard. The first one, last Monday, October 31, was a request to the Parliamentary Investigative Commission (CPI) on Bingo Parlors to hear all those mentioned in the news story.

Brazilian electoral legislation prohibits political parties to use funds from abroad in their campaigns, as well as non declared funds. If Veja’s story is proved to be true, the PT party may be proscribed.
