The Cuban Foreign Ministry condemned the attack against the constitution and democracy in Brazil, which has made former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva a target for unjustifiable and disproportionate judicial and parliamentary actions.
A statement by the Ministry on Sunday reads that the manipulation of the fight on corruption is aimed at discrediting and demonizing Lula da Silva and toppling the legitimate government led by Dilma Rousseff, thus overthrowing the progressive process in this region.
Lula and Dilma have proven their admirable braveness and determination to counter these actions against them, reads the statement.
The Government of the Republic of Cuba has no doubts that truth will prevails and that the working people of Brazil will close ranks in their defense and the safeguarding of their political and social achievements under the Workers Party.
