Brazil's top prosecutor says Vale execs may be punished for dam burst

SAO PAULO, Jan 28 (Reuters) - Brazil’s top prosecutor said on Monday she will pursue criminal prosecutions after the collapse of a tailings dam operated by mining giant Vale SA killed at least 58 people and left hundreds missing, and that executives may be punished.

“It is also important to hold the company severely responsible for compensation,” Prosecutor General Raquel Dodge said at an event in Sao Paulo, broadcast on Globonews tv. (Reporting by Tatiana Bautzer and Pedro Fonseca Editing by Daniel Flynn)
