Media Release - Joao Vale Azevedo

This morning the High Court refused permission for the Portuguese Government to pursue further charges against Joao Vale Azevedo, the former Chairman of Benfica Football Club.

Mr Azevedo remains in custody in Portugal where the Portuguese Government continues to relentlessly pursue him. Mr Azevedo has gone way beyond the acceptable dates for parole and home leave and yet he remains in custody with no prospect of release.

Hopefully the judgment this morning will encourage the Portuguese Government to consider that the time has now come for Mr Azevedo to be released from prison in accordance with the indication given by the British High Court some two and a half years ago.
