Brazil’s former president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, will become the new chief of staff for President Dilma Rousseff, a senior lawmaker says.
The move shields Lula from possible prosecution by a federal judge investigating a massive corruption scandal named Operation Car Wash.
Under Brazilian law, cabinet members can only be tried by the Supreme Court.
Lula was questioned two weeks ago over allegations of money laundering connected to Operation Car Wash.
