Inmate at Sintra’s Carregueira jail diagnosed with tuberculosis

An inmate at Sintra’s Carregueira jail – dubbed the VIP prison due to the number of ‘celebrities’ who pass through it – has been diagnosed with tuberculosis. Carregueira is a popular stop for well-known figures who often leave ahead of time on electronic bracelets. Corrupt mayor Isaltino Morais was a recent short-stay prisoner, while conman Vale e Azevedo (ex-Benfica boss) is still trying for early release along with a number of others condemned in the Casa Pia investigation.
