Brasilia, April 29 (RHC)-- Argentina's prominent human rights activist Adolfo Perez Esquivel condemned a "veiled coup d'etat" in Brazil and warned Brazilian senators about the possible aftermaths with other Latin American countries, as he gave a speech during the plenary session of the legislative body in Brasilia on Thursday.

"This is a soft coup as we call it here," he told senators, recalling that "similar methods" took down governments in Honduras and Paraguay in the past decade.  He warned that an interim government led by Vice-President Michel Temer could also have a negative impact on Brazil's relation with regional organizations like the Union of South American Nations and the Common Market of the South.
