Brazilian officials believe British police are not lying

Brazil's ambassador said Tuesday he has no reason to believe at this point that British police tried to cover up the circumstances of the fatal police shooting of a Brazilian mistaken for a terrorist in London's subway.

The statement by Ambassador Manoel Gomes Pereira came as Britain's police promised to deliver a report by the end of the year on the slaying of electrician Jean Charles de Menezes, and as two senior Brazilian officials in London continued their own inquiry, according to London Free Press.

The Brazilian investigation has only added to pressure on police amid claims that a series of errors led to the misidentification of Menezes and allegations of a coverup. Scrutiny has increased with revelations contradicting initial police statements, along with media reports suggesting police might have erased closed-circuit TV footage.

The shooting - and the way it was handled - have caused intense embarrassment to British police at a time when they are still investigating last month's bombings and trying to prevent further attacks, Xinhua says.

Police apologized for the shooting, but de Menezes' family has accused them of lying.

As Pravda.ru informed several days ago, undercover police shot Menezes seven times in the head and once in the shoulder after following him onto an Underground train July 22, the day after four failed bomb attacks on the transit system. Two weeks earlier, four suspected suicide bombers killed 52 commuters in similar attacks.
