Prosecutors drop case involving Benfica tickets for finance minister




Public prosecutors in Portugal have shelved a criminal investigation involving the country’s finance minister, Mário Centeno.

The case related to benefits allegedly granted in exchange for tickets requested by the minister for a football match at the Lisbon football club.

In a statement, prosecutors said that the case had been shelved for lack of any evidence of a crime, following an examination of documents and witness statements.

This comes after prosecutors had last Friday carried out searches at the Ministry of Finance.
