Brazil takes its stand

Brazil says it will not end court-ordered photographing and fingerprinting of US visitors, a tit-for-tat response to a similar US measure, despite grumbling over the US action.

"I consider the act itself absolutely brutal, an attack on human rights, a violation of human dignity, xenophobic and as bad as the worst horrors sponsored by the Nazis," Judge Julier Sebastiao wrote of the US measures, in his decision ordering Brazilian authorities to fingerprint and photograph all US visitors.

Brazil's policy is to treat foreign visitors as their countries treat Brazilians.

Beginning January 5, US immigration officials at all international airports will vet visitors' passports and visas and pose the usual questions -- before taking their photographs and inkless digital fingerprints.

Posted by Michael Darragh at 08:41 PM | Comments (1) | TrackBack

Boca Juniors striker Carlos Tevez, who led Argentina's most popular team to the Copa Libertadores title, was voted the top player in Latin America on Wednesday in an annual poll by sports journalists.

Paraguayan forward Jose Cardozo of Mexico's Toluca was second in the survey conducted by Uruguayan newspaper El Pais, followed by Brazilian midfielder Digeo of Santos.

The 19-year-old Tevez, whose speed and crafty ball control have quickly made him a fan favourite, has drawn the attention of several top European clubs, including Germany's Bayern Munich.
