Brazil: Federal Police Bust Google Exec

The CEO of Google Brasil, Fábio José Silva Coelho, was arrested by federal police this afternoon in São Paulo, based on an arrest warrant issued by elections tribunal judge Amaury da Silva Kuklinski of Mato Grosso do Sul.

Kuklinski ordered the arrest based on the argument that Google failed to remove videos posted to YouTube opposing the reelection campaign of Campo Grande mayor;

Google claims that users are responsible for the content of the video and for this reason could not comply with the court order.

The degree of tutelage exercised by elections courts here never ceases to perplex.
