PJ Director of Faro Guilhermino da Encarnação died


Guilhermino da Encarnação was responsible for cases like the Joana Cipriano case and Madeleine McCann

The National-joint director of the Judiciary Police in Faro, Guilhermino Ferreira da Encarnação, died this dawn, in an Lisbon Hospital.

Guilhermino da Encarnação, graduated in law since 1986, and would complete 62 years in March, was responsible for the conduct of some of the biggest and extensive investigations of the PJ in Algarve in recent years, namely the “Joana” and “Maddie McCann” cases. In the Algarve he was also responsible for investigating several cases related to human trafficking - the 'Gaiola das Malucas' [Cage of Mad], one of the first cases in which foreign women used in prostitution had their documents withheld and were imprisoned in houses with railings in order to not escape, it was one of the first of its kind to be solved in Portugal.

He joined the PJ in 1973, initially serving at the Directory of Lisbon. Some time later, as soon as the National Directorate for Combating Banditism was created, he joined its board.

He then went to Faro, then in charge of the inspection in 1991. He returned to Lisbon seven years later, serving not only at the Directorate as well as at the Institute of Police and Forensic Sciences, where he taught various subjects in the several police training courses taught there.

In 2001 he was appointed superior coordinator of Criminal Investigation.


in Público
Morreu inspector que investigou caso Maddie

por Marisa Rodrigues

Foi o primeiro rosto das investigações dos casos Joana e Madeleine McCann, as meninas desaparecidas no Algarve. Guilhermino Ferreira da Encarnação, ex-director da Directoria do Sul da Polícia Judiciária, morreu ontem, quarta-feira, aos 61 anos vítima de doença prolongada.

Um cancro no pâncreas afastou-o da PJ em 2008. Natural de S. Nicolau, Santarém, vai hoje, às 15.30 horas, a enterrar no cemitério da Galiza, no Estoril, concelho onde morava. Meia hora antes realiza-se a missa de corpo presente na igreja de Santo António.

Sobre o homem que dedicou mais de metade da sua vida - 37 anos - à instituição, o actual director nacional, Almeida Rodrigues, diz ter sido "um excelente investigador com uma intuição rara e que contribuiu em muito para o prestígio da PJ". A tudo isto, acrescenta, aliava "qualidades humanas" e "uma grande gentileza de trato que a todos deixa saudades".

Guilhermino da Encarnação tinha um filho de um anterior casamento e uma filha do actual, que herdou do pai a paixão pela Justiça. É magistrada do Ministério Público. Também o irmão do ex-director, José Ferreira, fez carreira na PJ.

Licenciado em Direito, Guilhermino ingressa na PJ em 1973. A ligação ao Algarve começa em 1991, altura em que exerce o cargo de responsável da então Inspecção de Faro (actualmente designada por Directoria). Sete anos depois, regressa a Lisboa para leccionar no Instituto Superior de Polícia Judiciária. Em 2002 volta novamente a Faro como adjunto do então director, José Abrantes. O cargo principal é-lhe oferecido a 1 de Setembro de 2004, onze dias antes do desaparecimento de Joana, na Figueira, em Portimão. Nesse mesmo ano, é agraciado com um louvor colectivo por "profissionalismo" e "competência profissional" revelados no caso da corrupção na Brigada de Trânsito de Albufeira.

  17. Parece que deu um erro quando tentei publicar meu comentário e o repito.

    Que notícia triste.
    Homem bonito, de classe, atitudes nobres, educado e competente.
    Aqui também vão meus pêsames à família, amigos e colegas.
    Portugal deve orgulhar-se de um cidadão assim.
    Uma grande perda para a polícia portuguesa.

  21. I am deeply shocked and sad
    A quiet man and a quiet death
    As he was calm and collected
    Though the Macs would say, he was mad.

  22. May he rest in peace, God bless his soul. My condolences to his family and friends.

    God only knows how much the tribulations of the McCann case contributed to his health deterioration. I think he fell ill not longer after the archiving of the process, sadness, frustration and disappointment, all that he must have felt, but it was out of his hands...as the portuguese saying goes:
    "Elas não matam, mas moem",
    neste caso parece que moeram e mataram.

  25. ;)) When I wrote that the decision of the young judge Gabriela Cunha-Rodrigues may have opened a flood of evil into Porugal, some readers of this blog called it Middle Ages superstition...

    Too many coincidences so far. First the floods in Madeira, then Portimao last night (of all places in Algarve) is hit by a mini-tornado that caused considerable damage, now we learn of Mr. Guilhermino Ferreira da Encarnação's passing. It "Superstition" alright...

    Please refer to my other comments in Joana's blog: "A Mordaça Inglesa": Sessões de apresentação da obra
    22 February 2010 | Posted by Astro.

    The reference numbers are:

    (6) "The BBC is breaking the news that the Portuguese government is to announce three days of mourning for the victims of the floods in Madeira. There is no mention that the mourning is also for the decision of Cunha Rodrigues' daughter on behalf of the McCann's - a decision that may well have attracted this flood of evil to Portugal.

    (47) " I thought you might. I did too (at first) but when I learnt about Sheldrake (Cambridge)theory of morphogenetic fields and became acquainted with David Bohm (physicist) and his holographic model of the Universe I started thinking...

    Then when I read the story of the American Indian who went to Africa and made it rain against all odds. I thought: Hmmm...this is possible.

    It might not be so much that I am living in the Middle Ages but that you are still hooked on Newtonian physics...

    The very substratum of matter is consciousness!

    Start with the Erwin Schrödinger cat than come back to me. Mind the dogs...

    Please read my reply to our comment above (47).
    Too far-fetching? Read this. It happened last night!

    "Correio da Manha
    24 Fevereiro 2010 - 08h05

    Na terça-feira à noite
    Portimão: Mini tornado provoca estragos
    Um mini tornado em Portimão, no Algarve, na terça-feira ao final da noite provocou danos em restaurantes de praia e empreendimentos turísticos, tendo ainda derrubado árvores e postes de electricidade.
    O fenómeno terá durado menos de um minuto mas o suficiente para destruir montras, telhados e toldos. As autoridades não têm registo de vítimas e estão a apurar os estragos deste mini tornado."

    Use Google translator. Essentially it is about a mini-tornado that hit Portimao! of all places in Algarve, last night (Tuesday). Another coincidence, right? 8-}

    Do we need a few more coincidences to be sure?

    :(( Close the gates of Evil! Put the McCann's on trial! Find Justice to Dr. Amaral!

  27. No doubt he was suffering from stress brought on by the McCanns actions.

  30. RIP :(
    This is very very sad

    WHY dont the mcC$$$$$$$ disappear instead?
    It seems like one way or another from far or close,they have a destructive influence.
    They killed Madeleine-even if they did not but they "killed" her because they were not here when she "disappeared"- they kill freedom of speech,they want to destroy GA....whoelse,whatelse are they going to damage? They truly have a malevolent energy.
    How long is this going to last?
    Is there anyone to stop them once for ever?
