Brazil: Petition for Slander-Accused Journalist

There is a petition out, in the Brazilian federal state of Bahia, in support of the journalist Emiliano José. Accused of slander by the preacher Átila Brandão for reporting the preach involvement with torture against students during the military dictatorship in Brazil, José published a text in the press in February 2013 and in his personal website. The Justice ordered the removal of the text, already republished on the internet, from José's site and the right of reply to the preacher.
