Killer of Albufeira bouncer gets 13 year jail sentence

The killer of an Albufeira night-spot bouncer who bled to death on the notorious Oura “strip” after being stabbed in the chest has been convicted to 13 years behind bars.

Judges considered 27-year-old Cape Verdean Valter Nunes had not acted premeditatively, “and so they decided on the lightest penalty” possible, reports Correio da Manhã today – adding that Nunes had been injured in the incident that shocked revellers in August last year.

How the wife and family of António Guimarães (known locally as Guimas) have taken the news is not mentioned.

The 40-year-old bouncer, dubbed the “peacemaker” for the way he dealt with difficult late-night incidents, was about to become a father for the first time when he was brutally stabbed to death.

His son was born earlier this year, with multiple messages of support and good wishes from the dead man’s former friends.

“Guimas” died as a result of a “settling of scores” outside Second Bar.

Nunes and three others were banned from the bar – due to previous incidents of violence and drunkenness – and their return on the night of the killing was described in media reports as a form of “seeking revenge”.
