Friends of murdered nurse Priscila Leonardi will protest outside the Brazilian Embassy on Monday.
The 40-year-old was found dead by a riverbank in Alegrete in southern Brazil last Friday.
Priscilla had lived in Ireland since 2019 and had travelled home to Brazil for a month to pick up her belongings.
She had planned to return to Ireland after her trip.
Priscilla had been missing since June 19 and she was found with a lanyard around her neck and injuries consistent with a beating.
Today, Brazilian media reports said a 30-year-old man had been arrested in connection with her death.
Irish Independent reporter Amy Donohue told Newstalk Priscila's friends in Ireland are demanding answers on her disappearance and death.
“She worked in a nursing home in Dún Laoghaire so her friends are holding a protest outside the Brazilian Embassy on Monday at 12pm, just to demand more answers.
“They want to let them know that they are concerned for their friend and, I suppose, they are going to mourn together as well.”
Priscilla’s friends are concerned that the investigation in Brazil will fall by the wayside – and are angry investigators have not tried to speak to the people she knew in Ireland.
They say she did not have any close family at home and her friends in Ireland and elsewhere became her family over the years.
Mourners are encouraged to wear black shirts at the protest.
