Socialist leader Pedro Nuno Santos came out this Friday in defense of the mayor of Lisbon City Council (CML), stating that Fernando Medina does not deal with disrespect for human rights and criticizing those who have been trying to "obtain political gains".

Palestine Solidarity Committee denounces data sharing "it’s a routine"

The Palestine Solidarity Committee (CSP) stated on Thursday night that the sharing of data by the Lisbon Chamber with embassies “is a routine”, denouncing that an identical situation occurred in 2019 with the Israeli Embassy. This sharing of data with embassies, including those of repressive states, is a routine of the Lisbon City Council and not a `error that should not have happened' and that Fernando Medina has now come to regret", stressed the CSP in a statement. At issue is, in connection with a concentration outside the Coliseu dos Recreios on June 26, 2019, promoted by the CSP, the "sharing of data by pro-Palestinian and Palestinian activists in Portugal by the Lisbon City Council with the Israeli embassy" .

Manuela Ferreira Leite: "The City of Lisbon continues to function with laws that are no longer in force"

The topic that was on the agenda this Thursday was the sharing of data from Russian anti-Putin activists by the Lisbon City Council with the Russian Embassy in Portugal. A controversy that motivated a public apology from Fernando Medina. As such, this controversy was addressed by Manuela Ferreira Leite, on TVI24, who understood the apology of the mayor's office “to a natural and normal procedure” and not to an isolated error. I heard the Mayor's intervention and I got the idea that he seemed to be apologizing for a mistake that had been made by the Chamber's services. I think that this is not an error, because an error is a procedure that is established by law and that later by mistake, that regulation is not complied with and that w...

Marcelo considers "effectively regrettable" sharing data on Russian activists

The President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, today considered "effectively regrettable" the sharing of data on Russian activists with the authorities of that country, already assumed by the Lisbon Chamber, saying that "fundamental rights" are at stake. I will know exactly what happened, but depending on what you say, if this is true, it is the recognition that it happened and it is indeed regrettable because, in a democratic and free country, if that is the case, fundamental rights of people and that apply to the Portuguese, but to all who are in Portuguese territory", declared. The President of the Republic responded to journalists in Funchal, at the entrance to a lunch at the Rectory of the University of Madeira, at the ...
