The paper examines the judicial case of the former Brazilian President Lula in the light of international fair trial obligations, and in particular of those relating to presumption of innocence, independence and impartiality of the judiciary. It also studies the relationships of the latter with international obligations to combat corruption. After analyzing the relevant practice it comes to the conclusion that Brazil infringed those fair trial obligations and, therefore, the internationally-imposed rule of law.
