Media Release - Joao Azevado

KT are delighted to confirm that they have successfully defeated the request for consent from the Portuguese Government to further prosecute Mr Joao Azevedo.

Mr Azevedo, the former Chairman of Benfica Football Club, still languishes in a Portuguese jail despite assurances from the British High Court that he would be released within a matter of weeks following his extradition there in 2012.

District Judge Purdy found that any further prosecutions of Mr Azevedo would be oppressive due to the passage of time and has refused to allow further prosecutions. A link to the judgment is available from here.
