Lula was sentenced in July 2017 to 9.5 years behind bars after being convicted of corruption in Brazil's huge 'Car Wash' graft scandal. The court in Porto Alegre said it will rule on his appeal on January 24. That could decide whether Lula -- hugely popular during his 2001-2010 two-term presidency -- can take part in the October 2018 presidential elections in which he is currently the frontrunner. / AFP PHOTO / Sergio LIMA
