Otro minero brasileño emboscado y asesinado en el Cuyuni (línea Esequiba) http://www.kaieteurnewsonline.com/2013/12/31/another-brazilian-miner-ambushed-and-killed/
Police have made no arrests.
Silva was slain on the same day that the bound and decomposing bodies of 42-year-old Joao Veloso do Nascimento, and his wife 52-year-old Edilene Fernandes Dos Santos, were found at a checkpoint on the Arimu trail, Region Seven.
Meanwhile, an official from the Brazilian Mining and General Association told Kaieteur News that the Association had received reports that gunmen had attacked a boat transporting Brazilians in the Cuyuni River on Sunday.
The official said that he had received reports that a miner known only as ‘Branco’ was slain in the attack.
The official also complained about the exploitation of Brazilian miners by rogue elements of the police force and some Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) staffers.
The source said that many more Brazilians have been slain than have been reported.
