The collective of judges considered that Leonor Cipriano was tortured, even though it could not be proved by whom. In the verdict read today, two PJ inspectors were accused, Nunes Cardoso to document forgery and Gonçalo Amaral to omission of denunciation of the aggressions suffered by Leonor Cipriano, the rest of the 5 arguidos [defendants] were absolved.
Gonçalo Amaral was sentenced to one year and an half of jail. The two PJ inspectors face a suspended sentence.
The lawyers for Cipriano, Marcos Aragão Correia and the assistant representing the Bar Rodrigo Santiago will appeal as well as António Cabrita, Gonçalo Amaral's lawyer.
