SEF detains citizen at the Airport of Porto upon whom arrest and conducting to the court warrants have been issued

​The Immigration and Borders Service (SEF) has detained, this weekend, at Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport, in Porto, one Portuguese national upon whom judicial arrest and conducting to the Court of Matosinhos warrants have been issued, intercepted in a flight from London.

The national, which has been refusing to attend the court since 2002, was illegally living in England and, since then, had been escaping justice for two criminal proceedings of which he is a defendant. We would seldom go to Portugal with the purpose to obtain the documentation for the legalization in England.

He has been brought before the Court, where the accusation order has been handed over, and determined that he will wait trial in freedom, and further decision regarding the possible release of the contumacious to which he is subject to.
