Leonor Cipriano's lawyer, who will be tried in February over defamation
against Goncalo Amaral, a PJ inspector and investigator in the "Joana
Case", has asked Portugal's Attorney General to take an "urgent
position" concerning the "heinous" accusation that he has been subject
"I write with the goal of obtaining your urgent position concerning the
heinous and vile libellous accusation that has been made by prosecutors
who are your subordinates," lawyer Marcos Aragao Correia mentions in a
letter to [Attorney General] Pinto Monteiro.
In the letter, which Lusa agency had access to, the lawyer stresses that
the torture that Leonor Cipriano was the victim of was "clearly proved",
unanimously, in a Jury Court, and later fully confirmed, without further
possibility of appeal, by the Appeals Court of Evora.
