Federal Judge Sergio Moro requested the Presidency to examine the seized assets of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, to check if any of them should be incorporated into the presidential collection. The goods were seized during the investigations of Lava Jato.

In order published on Friday (23), the judge of the 13th Federal Court of Curitiba meets the request of the Federal Prosecutor for the Office of the Presidential Palace Administration check the assets seized in February this year in a vault of the Bank of Brazil in São Paulo.

The aim of the research is to examine what belongs to the personal collection of the former president and what should have been stored as public property Presidency, such as gifts received by foreign leaders during official visits and state travel.

The judge said that the agency may rely on the help of TCU and calls for the investigation to be made, if necessary, at the branch.

"Like this, it is necessary to request examination by administrative body about the seized material so it can be done the necessary sieve, between what belongs to the personal collection of former President – and there are objects, as medals, which are apparently relevant to the personal collection, and what should possibly have been, in the wake of the provisions of decrees, incorporated into the President's Heritage ", the judge said.
