Brazil’s Supreme Court has ordered the release of an Amazon rancher charged with being one of the masterminds of the 2005 killing of American nun and rain forest activist Dorothy Stang.
The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday night that Regivaldo Galvao has the right to remain freepending the outcome of his appeal process.
In 2010, a jury found Regivaldo Galvao guilty of ordering Stang’s death and sentenced him to 30 years in jail. But he was freed on appeal.
