Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva leaves after having a breakfast meeting with senators from several parties at the residence of Senate President Renan Calheiros, in Brasilia, on March 9, 2016. Lula da Silva is facing allegations of taking bribes and laundering money from Petrobras-connected companies. On March 4 he was briefly detained for questioning over alleged "favours" received from corrupt construction companies implicated in a kickback scheme, prosecutors said. Lula da Silva was targeted as part of the Operation Car Wash investigation into a sprawling embezzlement and bribery conspiracy centred on the state oil giant Petrobras.
