Government gives Taylor Swift concert producer 24 hours to explain death of fan in Rio

The federal government has set a 24-hour deadline for T4F (Time For Fun), the producer responsible for Taylor Swift’s shows in Brazil, to provide information to the National Consumer Secretariat (Senacon) about the death of fan Ana Clara Benevides, 23. years, at the American singer’s performance on Friday (17), in Rio.

The organization, commanded by Wadih Damous, notified the event company late this Saturday afternoon (18).

In the letter, to which CNN had access, Senacon also orders the producer to present information on:

  • who determined the ban on access to water at the show;
  • whether drinking fountains were available; about the technical staff responsible for medical care at the event location;
  • what procedures were adopted to help Ana Clara.

At the end of the afternoon, the singer announced the postponement of the show that would take place this Saturday, due to the strong heat in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

After T4F’s responses, Senacon, a body linked to the Ministry of Justice, will decide whether to open proceedings against the producer regarding the case.

Earlier, the Minister of Justice and Public Security, Flávio Dino, stated that, starting this Saturday, water bottles for personal use, in suitable material, would be allowed to enter shows and shows.

According to Senacon’s determination, companies producing events with high exposure to heat must also provide free drinking water in easily accessible “hydration islands”.

The ordinance, published in the early afternoon, establishes “strategies aimed at protecting the health of consumers at shows, festivals and any large events” and says that the companies responsible for producing the events must guarantee free access to bottles for personal use, containing drinking water.

They must also provide drinking fountains or distribute packages with water suitable for consumption, by installing “hydration islands” that are easily accessible to everyone present.
