Judge orders arrest of Google head in Brazil over Youtube videos

ordered the arrest of the president of
Google’s operations in Brazil for failure to
remove You Tube videos that attacked a
mayoral candidate.
The order to arrest Fabio Jose Silva Coelho was
issued Monday by Judge Flavio Peren of Mato
Grosso do Sul state. It was prompted by two
videos containing disparaging remarks against
Alcides Bernal who is running for mayor of the
city of Campo Grande.
According to AP, Peren ordered the removal of
the videos last week. He also ordered a
statewide, 24-hour suspension of Google and its
video sharing web site.
Police say they have not received orders to
arrest Coelho.
Google says in a statement it is appealing the
judge’s ruling because it is not responsible for
the content posted on its site.
