Bogota - Former Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was Wednesday handed a second prison sentence for corruption, local media reported.
Judge Gabriela Hardt sentenced Lula to 12 years and 11 months in prison for graft and money laundering.
Prosecutors had argued that a house he was using in Atibaia near Sao Paulo was renovated by the corruption-tarnished construction giant Odebrecht and two other companies in exchange for contracts with the state oil giant Petrobras.
Lula's defence pledged to appeal the sentence.
The 73-year-old had already been handed a jail term of nearly the same length on similar charges.
