In a statement, the GNR command in Faro said that the actions took place on 29 July, in Albufeira, and at dawn on 30 July, in Vilamoura, where “a party with about 400 people was detected in an isolated area”.
Following the action, “several aggressions were reported, which forced immediate intervention to restore order and security in the area, with various authority forces in the site”, the note reads.
In this action, three people were also detained, which were constituted as defendants, “and the respective administrative offenses were drafted within the scope of the covid-19 and road legislation”.
The first action, on 29 July, was triggered following a complaint to the Maritime Police, which asked for support to the GNR post of Olhos de Água, in Albufeira.
When they went to the site, the GNR “found a large gathering of people disrespecting the rules of occupation and permanence” in a restaurant with around 200 people being counted.
According to the GNR, the people “did not comply with the rules of physical distance and exceeded the capacity allowed in the space”, which was closed by the police force.
The action included the reinforcement of the Public Order Intervention Group (GIOP) of the Intervention Unit (UI) and with the collaboration of the Albufeira Delegation of the National Maritime Authority.

It is good to stop these degenerates from destroying our beloved Portugal. They should all be locked up. The covid pandemic is very serious.

Maybe I can't read because I'm a stupid American but it never said these 400 people was all Americans but I wasn't there so I don't know, so I don't know who should be kicked out! No Portuguese people was there? No portugals business owners?, no others foreigners was there just American was there? Because I read that in the comments about stupid Americans! The comments: Stupid Americans! Throw terrorist out it will stop it! The big part of making money in Portugal is from tourists, Loss that money you lost your shirt in Portugal! Business will be hurting! Hurting your government spending programs! The person talking about Americans sounds like a American because I live American! Talking hate and jealousy is a sin! Give 400 tickets out
