MP asks for effective prison sentence for Armando Vara – Portugal

The Public Ministry asked for a three-year prison sentence for the former Secretary of State for Sport for the crime of money laundering.

The former minister, Armando Vara, is this Wednesday being heard in court in the third session of the trial for the crime of money laundering. During the session, the Public Ministry asked Armando Vara for between two and three years of imprisonment for the crime of whitening.

During the closing arguments of the trial, prosecutor Vítor Pinto, taking into account that the precedent (prescribed) crime of money laundering was tax fraud, asked the panel of judges to sentence Armando Vara to “a penalty that cannot be inferior two years and more than three years”.

Considering that all the facts contained in the indictment were proven at trial and given the need for “prevention of future crimes” by the defendant, prosecutor Vitor Pinto understands that Armando Vara – who did not want to make statements at trial – should be sentenced to a effective prison sentence “close to three years”.
