Brazilian Killed by London Police Had All His Papers

During a joint news conference yesterday in London, Brazilian minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, declared that Jean Charles Menezes was in England with a legally valid visa.

At the same news conference, the British Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, declared that he believed the family of Menezes should receive some sort of indemnity although the decision was not his to make.


Jean Charles Menezes, 27, was a Brazilian from the state of Minas Gerais. He was an electrician who was mistaken identified as a terrorist and shot dead by London police last Friday.
