Brazil Stops OAS Payments Amid Dispute, Estado Says

(Corrects the name of OAS in headline. Story originally ran on Dec. 4)

Dec. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Brazil hasn’t paid membership fees to the Organization of American States since April amid a disagreement over a hydroelectric dam in the Amazon, the O Estado de S. Paulo newspaper reported, without saying where it got the information.

The OAS’s Inter-American Commission on Human Rights asked Brazil to immediately suspend work on the Belo Monte dam project until it adequately consults indigenous people in the area, the OAS said in a statement on April 5.

The OAS press office and President Dilma Rousseff’s press office didn’t immediately return phone calls from Bloomberg News seeking comment.
