Asked about former judge Sergio Moro, he replied:
“I said to Judge Moro: ‘You are doomed to sentence me, because the lie has gone too far and you cannot go back.’ In fact, this lie involved a judge, prosecutors and the country’s mainstream media, who convicted me before I was even tried. What they didn’t know was that I was ready to fight until at the last breath to prove that they came together to prevent me from going to the elections. “
