According to the agenda of the Committee on Economy, Public Works, Planning and Housing, available on the parliament's website, the hearing of Christine Ourmières-Widener is scheduled for January 18th, at 10:30 am.

On Monday, the president of Chega, André Ventura, announced that the party would call the executive president of TAP to parliament to explain the compensation of Alexandra Reis, after the PS party rejected the proposal for a hearing at first.

"Chega considers that the time has come to powerfully request a hearing from the president of the Executive Committee of TAP, Christine Ourmières-Widener, so that the Assembly of the Republic can finally reach the truth that is sorely needed to dispel the fog that surrounds this whole soap opera", reads the request released by the party.

The Minister of Finance, Fernando Medina, was also at the Assembly of the Republic to explain the case of compensation of half a million euros paid to former Secretary of State Alexandra Reis, which led to the resignation of the former Minister of Infrastructure and Housing, Pedro Nuno Santos, and a reshuffle in the Government.

On Wednesday, in a parliamentary debate, the prime minister considered that former Secretary of State for the Treasury Alexandra Reis violated the public manager statute when she was appointed to Navegação Aérea de Portugal (NAV) and did not return part of the compensation that she had received from TAP.

The PS has already indicated that it will facilitate a parliamentary inquiry into TAP proposed by the BE.
