Brazilian prosecutors have filed corruption charges against former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and his wife in the sprawling Petrobras kickback scandal, GloboNews TV reported on Wednesday.

This was the first time Lula, still Brazil's most popular politician despite corruption accusations against his Workers Party, was charged directly by federal prosecutors for involvement in the graft scheme at the state-run oil company. His case will go before crusading anti-corruption judge Sergio Moro. Prosecutors will hold a news conference at 3 p.m.
