British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, telephoned President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, yesterday, to once again express his regrets for the death of Jean Charles de Menezes, the Brazilian who was shot on July 22 by London police who thought he was a terrorist.

Blair informed Lula that an independent commission will investigate the death of the Brazilian. He also explained that terrorism has caused enormous problems in England.


According to the Brazilian presidential press office, Lula expressed his comprehension of the situation in England, but pointed out that it was necessary to be careful so that what happened to Jean Charles de Menezes did not happen to other innocent people.


Lula also told Blair that he had personally spoken to the the family of Jean Charles de Menezes and explained that his death had been a crushing blow to them.
