A Brazilian judge has ordered the release of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, a former president of the country.
The judge said the Lula must be released from prison in Curitiba while an appeal process is carried out.
Lula had been sentenced to 12 years and one month in prison for corruption and money laundering.
He has always proclaimed his innocence, saying the conviction was politically motivated.
Lula, who led the country from January 2003 to December 2010, was jailed after a close vote, with six Supreme Court Justice in favour of jailing him and five against.
Opinion polls conducted before he was jailed in April suggested that Lula was the frontrunner for Brazil’s presidential election, which will be held in October.
