Brazil: Second Suspect Arrested in Case of Missing Journalist & Indigenous Expert

HeadlineJun 15, 2022

In Brazil, police have arrested a second suspect connected to the disappearance of British journalist Dom Phillips and the Brazilian Indigenous expert Bruno Araújo Pereira. The pair went missing over a week ago in one of Brazil’s most remote areas of the Amazon. On Tuesday, Indigenous activists gathered in Brazil’s capital Brasília to demand justice for the missing men.

Kamuu Dan Wapichana: “We are here to defend life, Indigenous peoples’ lives, to defend the environment and claiming for justice for our missing friends. We want answers, and this is why we came here to the Ministry of Justice.”
