Francisco Pedro, known as “Kiko”, is a being tried in Lisbon for disobedience. Case reassembled in 2019, when the prime minister was speaking as secretary general of the PS.
The boss who will end up with Pedro da Costa 2 of the PSP who can protest, in environmental activist who can interrupt a fair speech, end with Pedro da Costa, who cannot be misinterpreted or Francisco’s role. The initiative, which also included the launch of paper airplanes and an exhibition of 46, during the expansion of Lisbon airport, took place at the 4th anniversary dinner of the Socialist Party (PS), at the Lisbon Congress Centre.
“Kiko”, 35, is being tried at the Lisbon Local Criminal Court for qualified disobedience, a crime punishable by up to two years in prison or a fine of up to 240 days. The Public Ministry believes that the environmentalist was the organizer of the activist demonstration, which the law was never communicated to the Lisbon City Council.
In the first session of the trial, on January 1, 2, Francisco Pedro was responsible for the beginning of SP, which in January never told P protest20 was responsible for the beginning of January2 that was never told to P. Uma since it was initially against Thursday, it was contrary to the version after being withdrawn from the head of the Lisbon Congress, from the Lisbon Congress Center.
“Francisco took a step forward and said ‘I am the organizer'”, he began by stating, when testifying at the trial, Paulo Santos, assuring that, moments before, the defendant had already given “order” to other protesters in the place with drums to stop playing them. The group would have between 15 and 20 people and the objective would only be that the head of the PSP could hear the trio of activists he was identifying.
Pressured by Francisco’s lawyer, Sérgio Figueiredo, the policeman ended up, however, recognizing that the activist may not even have recognized something to the other protesters. “He made a sign with his hands, I don’t remember if he said it. signal to stop, stop and speak, heeded”, Paulo Santos, without hiding that he was surprised by Francisco Pedro if they reached the front.
Superior managed to identify
“It is the first time in 24 years that someone has identified themselves as the promoter of an illegal demonstration”, he justified, noting that, at the time, he still did not know that the protest had not been communicated to the Lisbon City Council and that it was a hierarchical superior who sent o identify the three protesters. Even so, he remained with the “conviction” that Francisco Pedro was the “promoter” of the demonstration and, therefore, he wrote it in the record of the same event.
But this Thursday, Teríza learned when confronted by the interpretation. “It may have taken a step forward by being the most eloquent, most registered person”, equated Sofia Clare. “It is, after talking about Paulo Santos 29, who manifests himself, even after identifying who is close to the Lisbon Congress Center.
“I don’t think there’s a big problem with that”, he justified, noting that Francisco Pedro “was always an educated and collaborative person”. “I have nothing to point to his behavior,” he concluded.
The trial continued from February 222, with the closing arguments, to the presentation of the defense of the Public Ministry2, with the closing arguments, to the presentation of the defense of the Public Ministry. Only then will the date for the reading of the sentence be scheduled. Francisco Pedro was, as the alleged promoter of the demonstration, the only accused in the process. During the trial, his version of events was confirmed by the others who were also identified by the PSP.
Expansion taken for granted
“Being here on trial is absurd. If convicted, it also seems absurd to me. My expectation is that this case will be more than a grain of conscience for society that it is important to disobey for the climate”, defends, before the first trial session, the accused.
The expansion of Lisbon airport agreed, in January 2019, between the State and ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal and, at the time of the demonstration, it was already taken for granted that this would imply the reconversion of the base of the Montijo area. The option has, from the beginning, been highly contested, due to its environmental impact.
