 The inspector of the Judiciary Police Ana Saltão, accused of killing her husband's grandmother in 2012, was this Friday, acquitted of the crime by the Court of Coimbra. The PJ's inspector had already been acquitted in the first instance in 2014, after which she was sentenced to 17 years in prison for the Coimbra Relation, but the Supreme Court rejected the decision and the trial began to be repeated in May, jury. In the final allegations, in July, the Public Prosecutor's Office (MP) requested the maximum sentence - 25 years in prison - for the inspector, considering that there was "economic motivation" to commit the crime, with the prosecutor to maintain that the inspector and husband had a financial situation that, "although balanced and controlled, was not brilliant." Defense lawyer Mónica Quintela reiterated, as she did in the first trial in 2014, that the investigation has no credibility, pointing to several contradictions and shortcomings, and defended the acquittal of her client. The defendant's defense pointed out that there is nothing to show that the five particles detected in the jacket were the result of shots, since the clothing was in contact with the floor of an inspector's office before being analyzed. Ana Salgado, who reaffirmed her innocence during the trial, was accused of being the author of more than 10 shots that killed Filomena Alves, 80, in a residence in Coimbra on the afternoon of November 21, 2012.
The PJ's inspector was initially acquitted in 2014 by a jury court, where the president of the panel of judges, João Ferreira, considered that "the likelihood of the defendant having committed the crimes under the indictment was minimal.

No doubt this one will rumble on with another appeal by the PP........how many times do you have to be declared innocent in Portugal before it can be decreed you are?
 I wonder how many bullet holes were located in the exhumed body of the victim?

The sentence which caught my eye was ...
"The defendant's defense pointed out that there is nothing to show that the five particles detected in the jacket were the result of shots, since the clothing was in contact with the floor of an inspector's office before being analyzed."
There isn't a fan of the CSI programme who isn't aware that allowing crucial items of evidence to be contaminated by being dropped on the office floor is a big no! no!
The remit of Operation Grange is to investigate ...  "(as if the abduction occurred in the UK)"

This thread has nothing to do with Madeleine Beth McCann,
unless  &%+((£ there is an implication that Maddies room was contaminated by the parents and all their friends 'searching' for an abductor carrying Maddie in her bedroom, before the PJ got a chance to close off the scene, but apart from that bit... nothing.

It has everything to do with how the various tiers of court in the Portuguese system cannot agree how to apply their own laws, especially given what happened to Ana at the Appeal Court.

Yet nothing t all to do with the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

I am assuming the victim's body is being exhumed due to an issue over the original forensics. It will be interesting to watch how this develops.

http://www.asbeiras.pt/2017/04/quintela-desvaloriza-exumacao-do-corpo-de-filomena-goncalves/

Ana Saltão's defense lawyer, Monica Quintela, said yesterday that the exhumation of Filomena Gonçalves's body is "totally useless".
Asked by journalists at the scene, the prosecutor of the Judiciary Police accused of the death of her husband's grandmother said that she "could add" something, "but it will not detract anything from the process." "It will not dictate the fate of the process," he said.
According to Monica Quintela, this diligence will not, for example, clarify "what was the fate of the bullets and, above all, its trajectory". The lawyer was accompanied by Duarte Nuno Vieira, former president of the National Institute of Legal Medicine (INML) and current director of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Coimbra. The expert was named expert by the defense of Ana Saltão. It should be noted that at the time of the events (November 2012), Duarte Nuno Vieira was the president of INML.
The new examination of the body of Filomena Gonçalves, shot dead in 2012, was requested by the Public Prosecutor's Office and aims to find out if any bullets were left in the remains of the elderly woman. It is because the autopsy performed at that time could not ascertain this situation, since the INML X-ray machine was damaged at that time.

I have absolutely no idea whether this woman is guilty or not, but, just picking up on the part you've highlighted in bold... seriously? Why didn't they keep the body until the machine was fixed?

The PJ can never be declared guilty of failing to secure a conviction without the required evidence. @)(++(*

As a PJ Inspector, Ana had legitimate access to firearms, as did her husband.
Here is a picture of Barry George posing with an illegal firearm. (sourcehttps://www.theguardian.com/uk/2008/aug/01/jilldando.ukcrime2)

Many people have illegal firearms.

The perception is, Barry George should never have gone to trial and your beloved SY ignored key clues. 8**8:/:

He didn't kill Jill Dando.

Besides, how would you stop crimes Misty?

A first step is to stop being so lenient on those convicted for serious criminal acts & serial offenders.
