Albufeira mayor cited in corruption probe

Albufeira crosses fingers for recovery of seriously-ill mayor

Albufeira citizens have their fingers crossed for the recovery of seriously ill mayor José Carlos Rolo.

Mr Rolo was rushed to hospital last week with a respiratory infection. It has since been explained that he has double pneumonia (‘bi-lateral pneumonia’). The infection is ‘controlled’ but he remains in intensive care with a ‘reserved prognosis’.

As soon as there is any news, council sources promise to give it “certain that concern for (Mr Rolo’s) health is shared by all the town’s citizens”.
