Brazil president, a former Communist guerrilla, to receive apologies from political ally for torture
By Julio Severo
The Rio de Janeiro state government said Friday it will apologize to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff for the human rights abuses she suffered during the countrys 1961-1985 military administration.
Rousseff is a former Marxist guerrilla who spent three years in prison during the military administration and was allegedly tortured. She participated in the militant activities of Marxist organizations Colina and Val-Palmares. Dilmas role in these militant organizations has been obscure, but she had been dubbed a pope of subversion. Colina and Val-Palmares were involved in armed attacks, kidnappings and bank robberies.

Rousseff will receive apologies from Rio governor Sergio Cabral, a strong political ally of the ruling Workers Party in Brazil, on June 4 for the imprisonment and torture she suffered in the state. The Workers Party is the party of Rousseff and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva
Rousseff will also receive the equivalent of $10,000.
Earlier this week, Rousseff swore in the seven members of a truth commission created to investigate human rights abuses under the military administration. The commission will investigate alleged abuses only from the Brazilian military against armed leftist militants. No investigation has been planned about civilian and military victims of leftist groups. Marxists had been fighting, since the 1930s, to overthrow the Brazilian government and install a Soviet Union-style government.
A study by the Rousseff administration concluded last year that 475 militants were killed or disappeared by agents of the military administration. Relatives of these militants have already been receiving multimillion-dollar compensations since the administration of former president Fernando Henrique Cardoso, a former professor of Marxism, whereas civilian and military victims of Marxist groups have been consistently left uncompensated and with no apologies.

Since she won't apologize for her crimes, it would be more appropriate to pump hot lead into her cranium. In public.
