CSMJ states Amadeu Oliveira was detained to ensure his presence in the trial

Mindelo, Feb 22 (Inforpress) – The Superior Council of Judiciary states Sunday that the defendant Amadeu Oliveira was detained to ensure his presence in the trial, pursuant to Article 148, 1 and 2 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CPP).

Through a note of clarification, the Superior Council of Judiciary (CSMJ) denied that the arrest of the lawyer was because of the complaints he made in relation to the judges.

According to the CSMJ, the detention was ordered because Amadeu Oliveira “not only publicly announced he was not going to appear on the day of the trial for which he was duly served, as effectively, did not appear on the day, time and place designated for the trial”.

The Superior Council of Judiciary recalled that according to Article 148, 1 and 2 of the CPP “the judge may order the detention, for the time indispensable to the performance the due diligence, of any duly served person who voluntarily does not appear on the designated day, time and place or justify his absence within five days”.
