A Brazilian Judge has blocked the appointment of Former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva as Chief of Staff to his successor, Dilma Rousseff, shortly after he was sworn in.

The Judge’s injunction said there was a risk a federal investigation could be derailed if Mr. Lula was a Minister.

In Brazil, Cabinet Members can only be investigated by the Supreme Court, not by Federal Courts.

Mr. Lula is under investigation in connection with a corruption scandal.

The Government has appealed against the decision.
