Global Voices Online: Police is after lieutenant blogger


Melquísedec Nascimento is a Brazilian lieutenant and blogger. On February 2, 2008 he reported that the governor of Rio de Janeiro, Sérgio Cabral, had ordered the police to arrest him ((Militar Legal » Governador Sérgio Cabral ordeno prisão do tenente Melquísedec)). According to Nascimento, this detention was ordered because of a photo composition and a video he had posted on his blog in which Governor Cabral is depicted as Pinocchio. The Police force in charge of the task paid visit to the blogger’s home on February 2, but he was nowhere to be found ((Global Voices Online » Police is after lieutenant blogger)). One day later, the blogger is still free, with no further information available in English language.
