Five arrested over ‘execution’ of Hells Angel in São Brás de Alportel

Five people have been arrested – four men and one woman, aged between 35 and 48 – over the death of former Hells Angel Rui Silva in São Brás de Alportel earlier this month. When his body was discovered, reports described the injuries as consistent with an execution. PJ police are reported to be working on the theory that the incident was prompted by a ‘dispute over the trafficking and consumption of drugs’. The five arrested are all already known to police for the “practice of especially violent crime”, writes Correio da Manhã today. They are all Portuguese, the paper adds.
