“In light of the information we have today, there is no intentional infiltration of the security forces, as has been seen in other countries”, said José Luís Carneiro, in the parliamentary committee on Constitutional Affairs, Rights, Freedoms and Guarantees.

At the hearing on the alleged involvement of members of the PSP and GNR in practices that violate the rule of law, namely in the dissemination of racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, and hateful messages, the official explained that the political orientation is clear in the face of these attitudes.

“In the face of demonstrations, facts, concrete evidence of behaviour, attitudes that violate fundamental values must be reported to the authorities” who have internal and external mechanisms to investigate these cases”, he explained.
