A Brazilian federal prosecutor has ordered an investigation into former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's alleged role in a 2005 vote buying corruption scandal.
The investigation, currently gathering steam, has divided public opinion around the most popular political figure of modern times.
Lula's critics say it is a long overdue, while supporters of the former president say it is politically motivated.
