Frederico Pinheiro criticizes “veiled threats” of disclosing video surveillance

Frederico Pinheiro, former assistant to minister João Galamba, today considered it “indecent to continue to witness personal attacks” and “veiled threats” of the dissemination of video surveillance images, admitting that after being “kidnapped in the ministry” what will be seen “is not a quiet person”.

At the hearing at the parliamentary committee of inquiry into TAP, Frederico Pinheiro reacted to the statement from five members of João Galamba’s office, released during the hearing, in which they accused him of lying to parliament and reiterated that two people were attacked on April 26, as well as how video surveillance will show Frederico Pinheiro’s “state of anger”.

“I find it indecent to continue to witness these personal attacks and with the veiled threat of releasing video surveillance images”, said the former assistant, adding that he would like this type of images to exist on the fourth floor of the building.

Further ahead, Frederico Pinheiro stated that “it cannot happen on a recurring basis” to put “selective information out there” to “try to discredit” him publicly, defending that “personal attacks are deplorable”.

“Certainly what happens on floor 0 is not a calm person. He was very upset because he was kidnapped”, he assumed.
