Brazil investigates 15-year-old girl’s jail horror story
Teenage girl says she was put in a prison cell with 20 male inmates
From Helena DeMoura
(CNN) — The Brazilian government is investigating the case of a 15-year-old girl who allegedly was raped and tortured after being put in a prison cell with 20 male inmates, officials said.
The girl — who said she was forced to have sex for food and suffered burns and other abuse — has denounced police in the small town of Abaetetuba for keeping her in the cell.
She is now in a witness protection program.
The case has sparked outrage among human rights groups as well as government officials.
“This is a shame, a shame in the whole system,” said Claudio Puty, chief of staff for the governor’s office in Para, one of the largest states in Brazil.
“There is a total collapse in the jail system in Brazil, but this is no excuse for them to wash their hands and do nothing,” he said. “We are doing all we can to punish these policemen.”
The victim — who has been identified only by her initials, L.A.B. — was jailed for attempted theft, and was sent to a police station in Abaetetuba, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) from the provincial capital of Belem, according to the O Liberal newspaper.
She remained in custody for about three weeks.
After receiving an anonymous phone call, two social workers tried to visit the girl in jail, but police barred them from doing so, the newspaper reported.
One of them, Maria Imaculada, told O Liberal the young woman was courageous and talked to them in front of several policemen.
In testimony before a tribunal, the girl told authorities she asked to speak to her relatives, but the police never responded, O Liberal reported, citing court documents. She testified that when she was forced into a bathroom, “I screamed and screamed, but to no avail,” the report said.
The girl’s father, who is also in a witness protection program, told reporters police asked him to forge the girl’s birth certificate, but he refused. He said police threatened him and even questioned his paternity rights.
“She was humiliated and sexually assaulted in an Abaetetuba cell by those who should be defending her rights,” he told O Liberal.
The Brazilian government has sent two commissions to investigate. Since the case made national headlines, other cases of women being sent to male prison cells have surfaced.
“What we are seeing here is endemic,” Tim Cahill of Amnesty International said. Watch Cahill discuss a ‘horrific’ level of abuse Â»

Helena DeMoura, CNN, December 15, 2007
Thousands waved the Santa Cruz region’s green-and-white flags in the streets as council members of the Santa Cruz, Tarija, Beni and Pando districts made the public announcement.
The officials displayed a green-bound document containing a set of statutes paving the way to a permanent separation from the Bolivian government.
Council representatives vowed to legitimize the so-called autonomy statutes through a referendum that would legally separate the natural-gas rich districts from President Evo Morales’ government.
The move also aims to separate the states from Bolivia’s new constitution, which calls for, among other things, a heavier taxation on the four regions to help finance more social programs.
About 35 percent of Bolivia’s 9.5 million people live in the four states, according to The Associated Press.
Some indigenous pro-Morales groups claim Bolivia’s richer, white-ruled Eastern regions want to control the country’s natural resources. Bolivia has South America’s second-largest natural gas reserves, behind Venezuela. Most of it is produced in the Eastern regions.
In the capital city La Paz on Saturday, Morales addressed thousands of flag-waving supporters in the Plaza Murillo, defending the new constitution and lashing out against what he called the racist policies of Bolivia’s elite.
“They must give back the money they took from us,” he told a cheering crowd, which included members of the Quechua and Aymara tribes. “We will retroactively investigate all the big fortunes, and the corrupt are now trembling with fear.”
Morales—who belongs to the Aymara indigenous group—nationalized the country’s oil and natural gas reserves when he took power in 2006, creating what became known as the “gas wars.”
Running on a platform of redistribution of wealth among Bolivia’s poor, Morales has defied countries such as Brazil and the United States for the exploration of Bolivia’s natural reserves.
He has also protested the country’s racial divide.
