Brazil's ex-President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was barred Thursday from leaving the country after an appeals court upheld his corruption conviction, the Globo television network said.

Lula denied on Wednesday receiving a seafront apartment from a construction company in exchange for bribes after three judges increased his jail term from 9.5 years to 12 years and a month.

The Brazilian Workers’ Party (PT) said it would still nominate Lula, who was president from 2003 to 2011, to run in next year’s election despite his confirmed conviction.
