Breaking:Court Orders Release Of Former Brazil President Lula

Former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva must be freed from prison, appeals court Judge Rogerio Favreto ordered on Sunday, three months after the Brazilian Supreme Court had ordered his arrest.

Lula, as the former president is known, has been in prison since April 7 serving a 12-year sentence related to a corruption case. Whether Lula can run in the October election has yet to be decided by Brazil's electoral court next month.
