A Minas Gerais state court denied a Vale request to free 11 employees from arrest, following the Brumadinho disaster that killed at least 203 people. Some of the workers had remained in jail following an earlier decision, and were later released by an appeals court.

The Minas Gerais state court ordered this week the 11 Vale employees to be arrested again. Additionally, two other people from contractor TUV SUD will also return to jail.

The judge said keeping the Vale workers in jail was “necessary for the good development of a police investigation, which probes a concrete offense of high gravity.”
