Brazil: Time to deliver: a human rights review: Amnesty International submission to the UN Universal Periodic Review, May-June 2012
In this submission Amnesty International evaluates Brazil’s implementation of recommendations that Brazil supported during its previous UPR. Military-style police operations, as well as organized crime gangs comprising former law enforcement agents, persistently put the poorest communities at greater risk. Torture and ill-treatment in the detention system remains prevalent and Indigenous Peoples across Brazil continue to suffer discrimination. Millions of Brazilians do not have the security of tenure and are vulnerable to forced evictions.
