Brazil: Fear for safety/possible death squad killing
Joao Elizio Lima Pessoa, who worked for the Conselho Comunitario de Seguranca Publica, Public Security Community Council, was shot dead on 7 February 2000. Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of Council president Carmen Lucia do Amaral, and of journalist Valter Melo, who published the Council's denunciations of death squad killings. Amnesty International is also concerned for the safety of Joao Elizio Lima Pessoa's wife, Neusa Maria dos Santos, the only witness to his killing.
