Marinho Pinto's Drama: "There is state terrorism in Portugal"
When confronted with the searches done by the Judiciary Police to the Office of Vasco Vieira de Almeida, an action which took place in the scope of the investigations on the Freeport case, the head of the Portuguese Bar, Marinho Pinto did not concretely made a statement concerning that situation, though he implicitly criticized the PJ and the Public Ministry in a more abstract and general style. The Bar said: “This is a practice usual to terrorist states. (…) If this is done in this way, in Portugal, this is state terrorism”.
Carlos Anjos, the ASFIC [PJ’s union] leader, considered that “Acts of terrorism” are the affirmations of Marinho Pinto.
