Police to bring in Brazilian editor to discuss invasion of privacy charge
The police have indicted journalist Amaury Ribeiro Júnior for violating the financial privacy of opposition candidate José Serra and are asking his former editor Josemar Gimenez to discuss the case, Terra reports.
Ribeiro was formally indicted earlier this week for violating financial secrecy, bribery, use of a false document, and attempting to bribe a witness, Época explains.
The reporter contends he obtained the documents while working for the Gimenez’s paper and says they were stolen from his computer by members of Serra-rival Dilma Rousseff’s campaign.
