Portugal’s national nurses association has asked the Public Prosecutor to investigate the cases of 2,605 people who died while waiting for an operation on the SNS National Health Service’s waiting list.

The head of the association, Ana Rita Cavaco, said she believes it is important the prosecutor ascertains whether or not there is criminal liability involved. A letter with the request was also sent to Portugal’s President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and to Parliament.
