The importance of this witness statement for the prosecution is obvious, since Leonor Cipriano was diagnosed as having anti-social disorders with a high degree of psychopathy, a diagnosis which was nevertheless elaborated by the National Institute of Forensic Medicine [INML], by the Institute of Social Reinsertion and also, in a report from the Minors Protection Commission.
The forensic psychologist, Dr. Paulo Sargento, based on the National Institute of Forensic Medicine [INML] report, affirmed in the court session of 24 November 2008 that Leonor Cipriano has psychopathic characteristics and a tendency towards suicide.
According to Dr. Paulo Sargento, the report indicates that Leonor Cipriano is a person with “psychopathic” characteristics, “affective coldness”, “with traces of low socialization”, with a “tendency to lie and fantasize”, with “traces of omnipresence” and who does “not respect other people’s well-being”, he said.
The psychologist also said that Leonor Cipriano can be classified as an “aggressive” person, “without values”, “dissimulated” and who “is not concerned about the truth”.
Could it be because Rodrigo Santiago is in fact, his defense lawyer in a negligent homicide case?
It will be interesting to see how the joint prosecution [the OA Lawyer and the psychic Lawyer Aragão Correia] will try to obfuscate the fact that Leonor Cipriano, a diagnosed psychopath, murdered her own daughter.
Oh, it seems the psychic lawyer Marcos Aragão Correia wasn't able to attend today's Court session...
will be updated along the day
