The Federal Police certified that former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has good prison behavior—a requirement for the semi-open regime program.

The document, signed by the Federal Police superintendent in Paraná, Luciano Flores, also states that there are no notes of disciplinary misconduct against Lula.

The order came after, last week, the Federal Public Prosecutor, as revealed by Folha, the former president was ordered to the semi-open regime because he has already served a sixth of his sentence in the triplex case in São Paulo.

Certification is required by law to prove or correct behavior of detainees so that they have access to the progress of the regime.

On Monday (30), however, Lula released a letter saying he will reject the benefit.

"I will not trade my dignity for my freedom," he said. "I want you to know that I will not accept bargaining for my rights and my freedom," wrote the former president.
