The lawyer said he tried to ask Gularte about his final requests, but the Brazilian responded with amusement.Gunawan quoted Gularte as asking.Irish priest Father Charlie Burrows, who was Gularte's counselor in the final days, said the Brazilian was confused about what was happening as prison guards and police prepared him for death.
