President of Madeira Unaware of Chinese Police Station

The President of the Regional Government, Miguel Albuquerque, says he was simply “stunned” after it was suggested that there are three Chinese police stations in Portugal in existence, one of them in Madeira, more specifically in Ribeira Brava.

Reacting to the comment, Miguel Albuquerque categorically stated…

“I don’t know anything, and I can’t talk about it. I read about it in the media and I was a little surprised. I have no information, nor have I been informed by their security services about any such situation.”

The complaint came from João Cotrim de Figueiredo, President of the Liberal Initiative, who last Thursday claimed during a national parliament session, that he had learned through a report prepared by a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) to defend human rights, that there are or will be three indirect Chinese police stations in Portugal, located in Lisbon, Porto, and Madeira.

He went on to say…

“There are indications that these police forces will be obscured and hidden under a seemingly harmless Chinese Communist Party delegation.” He then went on to question the Prime Minister, António Costa about whether he was aware of the situation.

Responding to this, the Prime Minister, António Costa said no, and suggested that the Liberal deputy inform the Attorney General’s Office of the situation.
