Praia, Jul 09 (Inforpress) – The President-in-Office of the Supreme Court of Justice (STJ), Benfeito Mosso Ramos, proved “expectant” that, with regard to the waiver of the parliamentary immunity of the MP Amadeu Oliveira, Parliament will act in accordance with its constitutional responsibilities.
Benfeito Mosso Ramos made these remarks, Thursday on the sidelines of the visit the Minister of Justice, Joana Rosa, made to the Supreme Court, when he was questioned by journalists to rule on the MP Amadeu Oliveira’s case, also a lawyer, who confessed to having helped his constituent Arlindo Teixeira to leave the country, bound for France, when he was under house arrest.

“It is not for me to make considerations about the handling of this request because I have respect and a lot of consideration in relation to Parliament”, justified the judge.
