Brazilian court lifts injuction that barred magazine from publishing deceased actress’ letter

In an article titled “the end of censorship,” Caras magazine announced that it was authorized by a São Paulo state court to publish a letter sent by actress Cibele Dorsa, who died after allegedly committing suicide March 26.

The letter, sent by the actress to the magazine, was about to be printed when an ex-boyfriend won a court injunction blocking the publication. The magazine circulated that issue with black bars in place of the note.

Caras has now published the actress’ letter, which criticizes her ex.
