●An openly gay congressman who frequently clashed with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said Thursday he was leaving his job and the country because of mounting death threats.

巴西國會議員威利斯周四(上月24日)宣布,在面臨死亡威脅加劇後,他離開了工作崗位和這個國家;威利斯是巴西公開出櫃的國會議員,經常批評總統波索納洛。

●In an interview published by daily Folha de S. Paulo, Congressman Jean Wyllys said he was currently outside of Brazil and had no plans to return. 

「聖保羅頁報」刊載的訪談內容顯示,威利斯議員已離開巴西,且沒有計畫返國。

●Instead, he said he would work in academia but did not say where.

他表示,將投入學術工作,但未透露地點。

●Wyllys, who was re-elected in October and set to begin a third term in February, said death threats against him had increased significantly since Rio de Janeiro councilwoman Marielle Franco was shot and killed along with her driver in March. 

威利斯去年10月連任,原定2月開始第三個任期;但他說,里約女市議員佛朗哥及其司機去年3月遭槍殺後,他面臨的死亡威脅加劇。

●Franco was a friend and ally of Wyllys.

佛朗哥是威利斯的朋友與盟友。

●Many in Latin America's largest nation saw Franco, who was black, lesbian and hailed from one of Rio de Janeiro's most violent slums, as a symbol of hope for her strong advocacy for LGBT rights and outspoken criticism of police brutality in poor neighborhoods. 

佛朗哥是非裔同性戀,出身里約熱內盧最暴力的貧民窟;她大力擁護同性戀、雙性戀和跨性別權益,且公開批評警方對於貧民社區的殘暴手段;許多拉美大國視她為希望的象徵。

●Her death led to large protests in Brazil and in several countries.

她的死在巴西等國引爆大型抗議潮。

●Ten months later, no one has been arrested for her murder.

佛朗哥逝世10個月來,沒有人因謀殺她而被捕。

●Since then, Wyllys, who represents Rio de Janeiro, has used a security detail.

在那之後,代表里約熱內盧的威利斯加強維安。

●"How is it that I'm going to live four years of my life inside an armored car and with bodyguards?" he said.

他說:「我要如何在裝甲車內,和隨身保鑣陪同下,度過未來四年?」

●In a tweet that posted a link to the Folha de S. Paulo article, Wyllys said: "Preserving a threatened life is also a strategy to fight for better days."

威利斯推文附上聖保羅頁報文章連結寫道:「維繫受威脅的人生,是為更好日子奮戰的一種策略。」
