The Department of Investigation and Criminal Action (DIAP) of Évora is investigating the death of the worker who was run over last Friday by the car in which the minister of Internal Affairs, Eduardo Cabrita, was following. The news was advanced by the Observer and confirmed to Expresso by the Attorney General’s Office (PGR).
“As is always the case in this type of situation, it was decided to open an inquiry with a view to investigating the circumstances of the death”, says the PGR. The 43-year-old victim was run over on the A6 highway, which links Marateca to the Caia border, in Elvas, while maintaining the road, according to information revealed by the authorities on the day of the accident. He was assisted but would eventually die on the spot.
In the statement reporting what had happened, released hours later, the Ministry of Internal Administration (MAI) assured that the accident “will naturally be investigated, in accordance with the procedures in force”.
On the following day, on Saturday, the MAI clarified that there was no signage to alert drivers of the ongoing cleaning work” on the highway in question. In the clarification sent to Lusa, he also explained that the vehicle he was following the minister “did not suffer any run-off ” and “it circulated on the carriageway, from which it never left, when the worker crossed it”.
“The worker crossed the carriageway, close to the central separator, despite the ongoing cleaning work being carried out on the side of the highway”, said the MAI, refusing to provide further information as the necessary investigations were underway. .
