WORLD CUP: COUNTRY PREPARED TO DEAL WITH DEMONSTRATIONS
The Justice Minister José Eduardo Cardozo said TODAY (19/05)) that Brazil is prepared for any events that occur during the World Cup in the months of June and July. Cardozo attended a meeting with heads of state intelligence organisations, in the capital Brasilia , to discuss the role of these institutions in the security of major events.
“With regards to the World Cup, we are prepared to face the demonstrations, being so to guarantee freedom of expression, or to prevent abuse from occurring,” said the minister.
“We’ve had constant demonstrations on public roads, which is absolutely normal, within the established by the Constitution. What we do not agree and accept is to use it for illicit acts. It is for the police authorities to preserve the freedom of people to express themselves and also deter and investigate violations that are committed, “he said.
