The minister of Justice, Flávio Dino, said in an interview on that he will determine the Federal Police to do “as much as they possibly can” to resolve and bring justice on the killings of indigenous expert Bruno Pereira and British journalist Dom Philips, in the Javary Valley in Amazonas state in June 2022.
Beto Marubo, an indigenous leader and member of the Union of Indigenous Peoples of Javari Valley (Univaja) who worked with Dom and Bruno, has demanded, in his social media channels, that the resolution of the case gets the same effort and priority as the murder of Marielle Franco, the Rio de Janeiro city council deputy murdered in March 2018. “This case also needs to be resolved, to Brazil and to the world”, Marubo tweeted. Due to security issues, Beto Marubo has not been back to the Javari Valley since the brutal murders. To him, the continued threats and the presence of criminal groups in the region means that “there was absolutely no justice” with regards to the deaths of his colleagues.Sources
