Brazil: Judge and prosecutor in the case of influencer Mariana Ferrer sue websites and reporter for moral damages

“Judge Rudson Marcos and prosecutor Thiago Carriço, from Santa Catarina, filed actions for moral damage against journalist Schirlei Alves, from First Look Media, the company that owns The Intercept Brasil, and the publisher Notícias do Dia, from the site Santa Catarina ND+ , which published reports on the case of the influencer Mariana Ferrer.
