PSD leader sees PM’s interview as PS Socialists trying to influence path of justice

Following stories circulating about an interview by CNN Portugal/ TVI of outgoing prime minister António Costa, PSD leader Luís Montenegro has suggested this is another example of PS Socialists “trying to influence the path of justice”. Attorney General Lucília Gago has not taken the bull quite so obviously by the horns, but she has definitely had her say on the matter (see below). Visiting Beja airport today, Mr Montenegro lamented that “once again” the PS is trying to “influence justice, against a principle that has been so often enunciated” (that principle being that justice must be allowed to work at its own pace, with political interference), but he said his focus these days is not so much on what brought down the government last month, but what can be done post- the March 10 legislative elections.
