M.,
 
Joćo Paulo wrote to the Brazilian Government. Probably his attorneys will file a letter to the Council countering his allegations.The Council is not a private institutition and it was a smart move by Joćo Paulo.
 
But don't forget that this letter was given to "O Globo online", who must give David the right to respond and also suffer the legal consequences of once again publishing slanders against a private party. Maybe you guys think it's best to let the slander become big enough. Actually, it will: comes Sunday, Fantastico will show a made-for-TV version of this letter. And it will reach more than 50 million people.
 
I have the right to be concerned for David's chances of reuniting with Sean in the U.S.
 
It's not just a slanderous campaign: it's a media blitzkrieg at the highest possible levels ran by the best PR firms money can buy. Of course the LeS started this out of fear of losing the battle in face of the American public opinion. But his version of events is starting to come out and a lot of people will buy it. If this is going to turn the tide against David in Brazil? If he is portrayed as a gringo with no heart for the kid's current well-being, it may. That's what the PR campaign has indicated it will pursue. And you all outside Brazil should be aware of this possibility.

Yes, we have to remember we also have the truth on our side and a very well documented paper trail to back it up and that is very powerful.  Lets follow David's great example and not stoop to their very sad tactics.  The more lies they spew the worse off it makes them look.  They have very little to go on at this point.  Lets keep this great momentum going.  Continue to defend David in a diplomatic way with the truth!  Keep the pressure on, email, write and spread the word!  The more people who become aware of this story the more support David seems to get.

Roger,

Its going to back fire on Joćo Paulo.  Why because every time David talks on any show he never says anything bad about the family he has all his evidence in order and at the ready.  When you see David talk you can actually see the pain in his eyes from the loss of his own son.  The biggest thing is since Joćo Paulo decided to open his mouth.  Lots of Brazilian will type in Sean's name or anything to find out more info on the case and will be brought to this site.  So all I can say is thank you Joćo Paulo, you really are a JA.

He is trying to make this a U.S. versus Brazil issue, which its not, but will get Brazilian support but also piss of other people.  Does this dumb*** not understand you can't take away someone's son in the first place?  They have yet to address this.

Roger,
 
You're right. As I posted this, I realized that my concerns are that people are responding emotionally. I guess I'm just trying to ask people to be thoughtful in how they respond. To give serious consideration to the words they use, because if we're not careful, they may be sliced, diced, and twisted; they can be used out of context and that which is sent out with good intentions can be spun and thrown back in a negative light.
 
Please take a breathe before responding in anger.
 
M

David's attorney's have documentation that all of this are lies.  They have the family admitting that they would not allow David to talk to his son.  This is all documented and it will be shown to the court.  These people are nothing but liars.

Did David Miss an Opportunity??
« Reply #22 on: March 06, 2009, 01:09:13 PM »
In the JPLS letter, he indicated that he took Bruna and Sean to Eurodisney in France.

Sean pōde conhecer a Europa do meu lado, e se encantar por Paris e a EuroDisney.
 

One of the first things you do in a Hague case is register the abduction with Interpol. This is a precaution so that if the child or abductor travels to a compliant country, they can be detained and the case heard in that country.

I know that David can't say, but does LukieD or Bob have an explanation how this potentially fatal legal mistake happened?

Also, how did JPLS leave Brazil without David's permission? At that point, David was still the father on Sean's birth certificate.

Maybe he just got himself into more trouble?

Make sure that the upcoming Fantastico story on Sunday does not become "this letter 'made for TV'".

Type? In which computer? In a lan house? You gotta understand that the Fantastico audience would not typically have access to computers and that the middle-class is not in the business of being informed and take active interest in news.
 
Plus, there is Anti-Americanism like all rest of Latin America (although this is not self-evident as in other countries, but rather dormant waiting for a perfect opportunity such as this case to flourish).
 
It's no coincidence that JPLS only referred as David as "the American". His PR firms will never let him appear as the rich playboy carioca guy stealing a kid from his biological son.

It really doesn't matter if he's "the American", he's the biological father.

Good advice from several - we need to email... but remember what we state should be done professionally, so as not to hurt David any more than he has already endured. Surely the Council will look beyond media blizt? One would hope so, since they would have the ability to know and see/hear all documentation. A calm, firm, persistent approach is the best way to quell the floodgates of this unethical, unjust, immoral comment by JPLS and his PR managers!!! Thanks, Roger and others - it helps to keep a cool head and a good perspective - we need to make sure any "next moves" are done in a calculated, calm, thought out way ~ yes, driven by emotion, but checked, so we help David all the more.

Lot's of lies and mud-slinging from LeS.  For a moment, let's be COMPLETELY IGNORANT and pretend it's all true.  Does that change the fact that the sole surviving parent DESERVES custody his son? No, it does not.  Please, God, bring justice.
Bring Sean Home.

REPOSTING FROM SMEAR CAMPAIGN THREAD:
 
One definition of a smear campaign is “an effective, if destructive, political tool that casts an important shadow of doubt over a person's moral and personal integrity...a well conducted smear campaign can help you chip away at your opponent's image, no matter how good his or her reputation might be
 
They say, “One of the best ways to ensure a smear campaign's success is getting the accused party to respond to the accusations
 
With that in mind, perhaps the best approach this community can take in response to LeS’s smear campaign tactics is to remain aware and informed of their activities, but do not allow them to distract us. Time and energy we spend focused on and reacting to the negative aspects of these stories might be better spent writing letters, making phone calls or creating new positive initiates in support of David.
 
Let’s remain positive and focused on doing all that we can to expedite Sean’s home coming!!

 
Well said !! M. Capestro!! I couldn't  agree more!!!
