Projecto Justiça Gonçalo Amaral. This is the name of an initiative started by a group of citizens showing their solidarity, who have launched a petition for the defense of freedom of expression and the right to defend himself concerning the former PJ coordinator who investigated the Maddie case.
The project is on the internet at http://pjga.blogspot.com. A petition in Portuguese and another in English were launched 3 days ago. At the end of the afternoon, yesterday, the first had 247 [updated nº: 312] signatures and the second 406 .
The objective is to denounce at the Portuguese Parliament, at the European Parliament and at the European Court of Human Rights "this attack on freedom of expression", said the forensic psychologist, Paulo Sargento, one of the leaders of the project.
Yesterday a bank account was opened. "It's a support fund to pay the legal expenses of the court cases of the former PJ Inspector" said Paulo Sargento.
