Brazilian indigenous leaders and human rights groups are calling for an international court to prosecute the country’s president for crimes against humanity to remove environmental safeguards in the Amazon rainforest.
Paris-based lawyer, William Borden, submitted a request for a preliminary inquiry into Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro at the International Criminal Court in The Hague on Friday, according to reports.
“It is very urging,” Bourdon told the Guardian. “We are running against the clock, watching the devastation of Amazon.”
According to the Brazilian environment, Bolsonaro took over in 2019, deforestation in the Amazon region increased by nearly 50 percent, and invasion of native areas by wild cat miners and rankers increased by 135 percent. Report good.
Bourdain wants to try to see Bolsonaro for “Ecocide”, which causes long-term harm to the environment and indigenous people. The attorney filed a 68-page complaint on behalf of natives Almir Surui and Rauni Metucair.
