RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The 30th edition of the International HRW (Human Rights Watch) World Report, released on Tuesday, January 14th, in New York, devotes nine of its 652 pages to Brazil.
In the document, the NGO denounces what it calls the "carte blanche" granted by Jair Bolsonaro's government to the illegal deforestation of the Amazon and the encouragement of police lethality. In a note, the Planalto said it will not comment on the report.
Bolsonaro's attacks on the press, praise of torturers and denial of the dictatorship's crimes were also highlighted by the NGO as examples . . .
