SAO PAULO Oct 10 Brazilian prosecutors said on
Monday they had charged former President Luiz Inacio Lula da
Silva and Marcelo Odebrecht, ex-CEO of engineering group
Odebrecht SA, with corruption related to contracts in Angola.
Lula is facing several other charges related to a sweeping
kickback probe at state-run oil company Petrobras.
The new charges say Lula used his influence while in office to
secure financing from Brazil's development bank for Odebrecht
projects in Angola - and that Odebrecht in return paid 30
million reais ($9.31 million) in kickbacks to Lula and others.
