Aracruz security guards help arrest 15 Indigenous People

Posted: 18 August 2006 in Aracruz, Brazil

The dispute between Indigenous Peoples and Aracruz in Espirito Santo continues.

CIMI reports that on 9 August 2006, Aracruz security guards, working for the firm Visel (Vigilância e Segurança Ltda.) took part in the arrest of eight Tupinikim and Guarani and seven others. Human rights lawyer Isaias Santana says that the people arrested were tricked into going into an area that both sides had agreed not to use until the administrative procedure for demarcating the land has been completed.
