SAO PAULO Aug 9 (Reuters) - Brazilian phone carrier Oi SA has filed a bankruptcy protection request before a Dutch court for Netherlands-based subsidiary Oi Brasil Holdings Coöperatief UA.

In a Tuesday securities filing, Oi said that the Amsterdam-based court also appointed a trustee for the Oi Brasil Holdings unit under the so-called "suspension of payments" procedure, confirming a Reuters report earlier in the day.
