Brazilians will find the truth

Relatives of a Brazilian man shot dead by police who mistook him for a suicide bomber were briefed by officers two days later, Scotland Yard says. Brazilian officials began investigating the case.

The cousins of Jean Charles de Menezes were told he had not run into London's Stockwell Tube station and had not vaulted the ticket barrier, it said.

They were also told he was not wearing a padded jacket, contradicting reports.

Scotland Yard issued a statement after a "positive" meeting with senior Brazilian officials on Monday.

As noted earlier, Wagner Goncalves, of Brazil's federal prosecutor's office, and Marcio Pereira Pinto Garcia, of its ministry of justice, flew to the UK on Monday to look into the circumstances surrounding the killing of the 27-year-old electrician.

They met members of the Metropolitan Police, including Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair, in a discussion chaired by Deputy Assistant Commissioner John Yates, BBC reports.

They are also due to meet representatives from the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), which is investigating the case.
