Brazilian ambassador believes London Police in de Menezes case

Brazil's ambassador said Tuesday that he believes there was no cover-up by British officials in the fatal police shooting of a Brazilian man mistaken for a terrorist.

When asked about a cover-up, Ambassador Manoel Gomes Pereira said: "No, at this point, no. ... At the moment, we don't have any reason whatsoever to assume that," reports the AP.

According to Mail & Guardian an independent police complaints panel said on Tuesday it will finish a report into the fatal London shooting of a Brazilian man wrongly suspected of being a suicide bomber by the end of the year.

But the Independent Police Complaints Commission's (IPCC) findings will not be published until all other proceedings linked to the death of Jean Charles de Menezes (27) are completed, a lawyer for the IPCC said.

The news came as a delegation from Brazil continued a trip to London to find out more about the electrician's death at the hands of anti-terrorist officers as he boarded a subway train at a station in south London on July 22.
