Joana Cipriano's mother Leonor sentenced again.

After a request by Marcos Aragao Correia, considered groundless, in the trial brought by the Public Prosecutor against the PJ inspectors, the Second Criminal Court of Faro sentenced Joana's mother to pay a fine of 270 €.

As a reminder, Leonor Cipriano accused the PJ inspectors of having assaulted her during one of the interrogations preceding her sentencing to 16 years in prison for the murder of her daughter Joana. (Read here)

Since he became Leonor's lawyer, Marcos Aragao Correia has continually put forward new requests and new witnesses. Recently the lawyer, himself the subject of several criminal cases, had announced that he wanted to be placed under protection, indicating that one of the inspectors had compared him to a dog that should be given a good smacking.
