Ambitious Plan To Build World Cup Stadium In Middle Of Amazon Facing Several Hurdles
Published September 26, 2013
A 'NOVEL IDEA': The AP's Stephen Wade reported the stadium "may not become a white elephant after all." Amazonas state court system spokesperson Alvaro Corado said that Judge Sabino Marques "had proposed a novel idea." Quoting Marques, Corado said, "He would, perhaps, suggest to the government of the state of Amazonas that the stadium be used as a processing center for prisoners after the World Cup." Marques is "also the president of a group that monitors the prison system in the state" (AP, 9/24).
