A lawyers association in Brazil has accused a top judge of conspiring with prosecutors to keep former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva out of last year’s election.
Lula was jailed in April last year, as part of a wide-ranging corruption probe, called Operation Car Wash.
That prevented him from running again for president in last October’s election.
Opinion polls suggested he was likely to win.
