Upon retracting, the singer apologized to Lulinha for attributing “serious crimes” to him and for making false claims that the businessman “would have illegally enriched himself”.
247 Singer Amado Batista has apologized to businessman Fabio Lula da Silva, better known as Lulinha, son of former President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT), after he was subjected to a criminal complaint due to injury. The two reached an agreement this week at the Court of Justice of Pernambuco (TJ-PE). Upon retracting, the artist apologized to Lulinha for attributing “gross irregularities” to him and for his false assertions that the businessman “unlawfully enriched himself”.
“Although I said that Fabio Luis Lula da Silva would be a landowner and a cattle owner in Mato Grosso and Barra, I am aware that this information came to my knowledge from mere rumors that were spread irresponsibly in society,” said Batista. The report was published on Tuesday (21) by Monica Bergamo column.
In an interview with “Frente a Frente”, broadcast by Rede Nordeste de Rádio, Amadou Batista said last year that Lula and his children committed theft during the Labor governments.
“Before Bolsonaro, Brazilian money was being invested to help communist countries,” said Lieutenant Colonel Magno Martins, who said he quoted Tourism Minister Gelson Machado. “In addition to stealing insanely, right? Besides stealing insanely. There are people who were poor before communism here, before the left, who are millionaires today,” Amado added.

I apologize to FÁBIO LUÍS LULA DA SILVA for the unjust manner in which I have ascribed serious crimes to him, and I also confess that my statements which I would have unlawfully enriched were wrong.
Although I have said that FÁBIO LUÍS LULA DA SILVA will be a landowner and a cattle owner in Mato Grosso and Barra, I acknowledge that this information has drawn my attention from mere rumors that have spread irresponsibly in the community.
Hence, I have come to formally retract the statements used in the interview, as I have never had evidence to substantiate what was said.”
