Police officer in Rio de Janeiro summons journalist from The Intercept Brasil

“The Rio Civil Police delegate, Pablo Dacosta Sartori, summoned journalist Leandro Demori, from The Intercept Brasil, to testify on Thursday (June 10, 2021). According to information from the site Metrópoles, the reason for the summons was the May 8 newsletter published by the site with accusations against civil police in Rio de Janeiro. In the publication, the agents of the Coordination of Special Resources, involved in the shooting in Jacarezinho, are called ‘facção da Core'. "

Note from LJR: Facção translates to "faction" in English, but is frequently associated in Brazilian Portuguese to refer to a drug gang. CORE is the tactical unit of the Rio de Janeiro State Civil Police.
