Home Affairs Minister Eduardo Cabritra is facing calls to resign amid outrage over the fatal beating of a Ukrainian man by border patrol officers at Lisbon airport in March. It is alleged that Ihor Homenyuk was beaten and asphyxiated by three officers who tied his arms and legs to restrain him. The EU’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture has identified “a considerable number of credible allegations of ill-treatment by police officers” in Portugal, which it says are “not infrequent and not the result of a few rogue officers”.
