Brazil Sends High-Level Team to London to Probe Death of Brazilian Killed by Police

    The Brazilian government expressed indignation over new information published in the media about the death of Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes in London and is sending a high-level a team to Great Britain to deal with the case.

    Jean Charles, 27, was murdered by the British police on July 22. The policemen mistook the Brazilian for a terrorist that took part in the bomb attack at the London subway, the previous day.


    In a note released Thursday, August 18, Brazil’s Ministry of Foreign Relations says that “the most recent news, accompanied by images of strong impact, concerning the tragic circumstances that resulted in the death of the Brazilian citizen Jean Charles de Menezes worsen the Brazilian government’s feeling of indignation.”


    Next Monday, August 22, the Brazilian government will send two representatives to London: deputy attorney general of the Republic and the general corregidor of the Federal Public Ministry, Wagner Gonçalves, and the director-adjunct of the actives recovery department and international juridical cooperation of the Justice Department, Márcio Pereira Pinto Garcia.


    Both are going to meet with representatives of London’s Independent Commission on Complaints against the Police (IPCC) and with the  Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner, John Yates, besides other British authorities.


    “The Brazilian government expects to obtain ample explanation, including those concerning news recently published by the press,” says the Foreign Relations Ministry’s note.


    The Brazilian press published this week documents and photos of the secret investigation leaked about Jean Charles’s death that show discrepancies between the official version of London’s police and testimonies of witnesses and new news reports.


    Brazil’s Minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, on July 25, had already met in the British capital with the United Kingdom’s Foreign  Secretary, Jack Straw. At that time, Amorim talked about “the shock and the Brazilian government’s perplexity”, according to the Ministry’s note
