Portuguese CID spokesman told Gazeta Digital that “Pol√≠cia Judici√°ria has already information about the interview and is analysing the facts, in order to take a proper action”.
Witnesses and “arguidos” (formal suspects that haven’t yet been accused, in the Portuguese legal system) are forbidden to talk about the crime investigation. Doing it means they committed a crime. The final decision about prosecuting Robert Murat for breaching the “Secrecy Law” in a crime investigation will be taken by the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
