Not a good moment for Álvaro Sobrinho

Álvaro Sobrinho, suspected of siphoning of €500 million from BESA, questioned in Lisbon today

Álvaro Sobrinho, the former head of BES Angola, is back in Lisbon today, being questioned by notorious (for his perceived determination to fight corruption) judge Carlos Alexandre. The multi-millionaire said very little to journalists camped outside DCIAP headquarters (department of criminal investigation and penal action), but it is understood Judge Alexandre is seeking to change the terms of Mr Sobrinho’s bail: the idea being to see him put under some form of ‘detention’ (possibly house arrest, much like the situation of Manuel Pinho). This ‘story’ goes back years. Excerpts can be read here here here and here
