SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff wept Wednesday as she was handed the final report on the crimes committed during the country’s military dictatorship prepared by the Comissão Nacional da Verdade (National Truth Commission). Rousseff’s voice faltered as she spoke about the parents and friends of those who disappeared during the period.
“Brazil needs to know the truth…. and especially those who lost family members and parents and continue to suffer as they die again each passing day, need to know the truth,” said the President.
