From the South: Brazil's Workers' Party president says the Supreme Court's 6-5 ruling to end the mandatory imprisonment of alleged criminals after they lose a first appeal 'strengthens democracy at a time when the country's constitution is under threat from the far-right.' The decision could lead to the release of former president Luis Inacio Lula da Silva.
