According to the PGDL, the arrests of the passengers took
place when it was found that the defendants, upon arrival at Lisbon airport on
flights from South America, were carrying cocaine concealed in their bags.
"Following the interrogations and in line with what was
promoted by the Public Prosecutor's Office, it was judicially decided to apply
the coercive measure of preventive detention to the two detainees", says
The investigations continue under the direction of the
Department of Investigation and Criminal Action (DIAP) of Lisbon, with the
support of the Judiciary Police.
