- The Police opened an inquiry to investigate the crime of prejudice based on race, color, ethnicity, religion or national origin in flyers thrown on the streets of condominiums in Barra da Tijuca , in the West Zone of Rio de Janeiro, with offenses against Jews.

The thousands of flyers with the message: “Jews compulsive hoarders of gold diamonds and dollars” (“Judeus acumuladores compulsivos de ouro diamante e dólares”) were on the floor of Mundo Novo and Américas Park during the weekend and caught the attention of the residents.

On the TV Cultura website, the authorities informed that the 16th DP (Barra da Tijuca) is taking care of the case and is seeking to ascertain the authorship of the pamphlets, as well as those responsible for printing the material. The agents seek images from security cameras and take other steps to clarify the facts.
