Brazil police charge Lula in case linked to Odebrecht in Angola

Brazil’s federal police have presented formal charges against former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in a case involving contracts obtained by building and engineering conglomerate Odebrecht [ODBES.UL] in Angola, a source said on Thursday.

The source, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information, said that Lula was among 10 people to be charged in a document sent by police to prosecutors. Lula has already been charged twice in connection to a massive anti-corruption investigation centered on state oil company Petrobras.
