Brazilian Woman Who Stripped in Bolivia Goes Home

LA PAZ -- Juliana Lima, the Brazilian woman who scandalized Bolivians earlier this week when she stripped at the foot of the Christ the Redeemer monument in the eastern city of Santa Cruz to get police to deport her, got her wish and is headed home, officials said.

Lima, who is about 25 and stripped twice at the monument to draw attention to her plight, was taken to the border and contacted her mother, who lives in Belo Horizonte, the chief of the inspection service at the immigration office in Santa Cruz , Ruben Orozco, told Efe.

The woman, who said she did not have enough money to go home, received assistance from the Brazilian Consulate and plans to travel to Belo Horizonte.

Lima stripped early in the morning on Monday, hoping that police would immediately deport her because she lacked documents and a passport, but officers released her after two hours.

The Brazilian woman returned to the monument later in the morning and stripped once again, causing a traffic jam.

Lima, who spent several months in the Andean nation searching unsuccessfully for her Bolivian father, was taken by two guards to the border by train on Tuesday.

Immigration officials determined that Lima's "stay was concluded" and she could be taken to the border instead of being deported because she did not commit a crime, Orozco said.

Bolivian television rebroadcast an 8-month-old report Tuesday about a young man who stripped in public to force his deportation to Brazil, but the outcome of his case is not known.
