Family refuses to accept Leonor Cipriano back

After serving over one fourth of her sentence, Joana’s mother may leave prison before Christmas, but the family doesn’t want her home.

The family of Joana Cipriano’s stepfather does not accept to receive the mother’s child in their home, which is located in the village of Mexilhoeira Grande, in the county of Portimão. Leonor Cipriano has requested the Sentence Execution Court of Évora to grant her a jurisdictional leave license, as she has served over one fourth of the 16 year sentence that she was condemned to, over the crimes of qualified murder and concealment of her daughter’s body (which has not appeared yet), on the 12th of September of 2004.

The refusal to accept Leonor Cipriano – who will learn the judge’s reply to the request that was now filed, after a technical report, namely by the Prison of Odemira, where she is located -, is related to a letter that was sent about two months ago to Lurdes David, the mother of Leandro Silva, Joana’s stepfather, in which she accuses her ex-partner’s family of intending to “take my children away from me”. Ruben, aged 8, and Sara, aged 6, live with their paternal grandmother, an aunt and other relatives.

Joana’s mother’s revolt appears following a letter that was sent to her by Lurdes David, in which she asked her for permission to remove the name “Cipriano” from the children’s identification, leaving only “Domingos”, Leonor’s surname. According to Sara David, the children’s aunt, this would be due to “whenever my niece and nephew go somewhere and are called Cipriano, everyone stares at them, remembering Joana’s mother and the story of her daughter’s disappearance. That was what happened when the children went to the Registry to get their ID cards”.

If Leonor Cipriano obtains a licence to leave prison, which during an initial phase will only be for a maximum of seven consecutive days every four months, under article 79, number 4, of the Sentence Execution Code, her life does not look easy.

“We are not her family. We are simply Leandro’s family. We won’t take her back for one single day, and we won’t allow her to see her children, who are under our care. She is ungrateful. Her lawyer, who didn’t even bother to contact us concerning that issue of her possibly leaving prison, he can find her a home, or she can go to her own family, who never cared about her, either. We are not going to suffer again what we suffered when Joana disappeared and many people stopped speaking to us and my sister lost her job and her boyfriend”, Sara David told DN in a revolted tone.

Leandro Silva, who continues to work at the family’s junk site, asserts that he still “loves” Leonor, although now he lives with another woman, in Portimão.

On the other hand, lawyer Marcos Aragão Correia, the legal representative of Leonor Cipriano and Leandro Silva (in a process against former PJ coordinator Gonçalo Amaral, over suspected aggression), has advised the family to be “sensible”, recalling precisely that he is also that man’s lawyer without charging any honoraries. “I showed my solidarity towards Leandro when he couldn’t afford the processes’ expenses and walked around without any documents to request judicial support from the State”, Marcos Aragão Correia observed.

Marcos Aragão Correia accused of defaming Gonçalo Amaral

The Public Ministry accuses lawyer Marcos Aragão Correia of defamation against Gonçalo Amaral, a former PJ coordinator, due to a document in which he recounts supposed torture acts against Leonor Cipriano, who in 2005 was condemned to a 16-year prison sentence over the death of her daughter, Joana, and the concealment of the child's cadaver.

The lawyer - who represents Leonor Cipriano - has sent the aforementioned document to the Association against Exclusion for Development (ACED), and its head, António Dores, also stands accused of the crime of defamation. After filing the complaint against the lawyer, Gonçalo Amaral requested for Aragão Correia to be considered unimputable, even suggesting his commitment to a psychiatric hospital.

Within the case of alleged aggressions against Leonor, Gonçalo Amaral was condemned to a one-and-a-half-year suspended sentence over false deposition. The former PJ coordinator is represented by João Grade, Cipriano's former lawyer.

Leonor Cipriano lawyer to sue state

The Court of Appeal of Évora not upheld the appeals of two inspectors from the Judicial Police condemned the Leonor Cipriano case and decided to keep the ruling of first instance, said this Friday's lawyer Marcos Aragao Correia, adding he would sue the Portuguese Government for Violation of Human Rights.

According to the lawyer for Leonor Cipriano, the Court of Appeal considered "quite sufficient" all the evidence in the first instance to prove the existence of a "serious crime of torture" against Leonor Cipriano.

At trial, held in Faro, for several months, the two inspectors of the Judicial Police, Gonçalo Amaral and António Cardoso, were sentenced to one year and six months and two years and three months respectively, suspended in its execution.

Gonçalo Amaral, former coordinator of the Criminal Investigation Department in Lagos, as the author was convicted of a crime of false testimony, and Antonio Cardoso, as the author of a crime of forgery of a document.

According to Marcos Aragão Correia, the Court of Appeal of Evora has declared "unfounded" every resource, including the claim of the defendants' proof of renewal."

The lawyer adds that the judges who reviewed the resources, and decide to keep the full ruling of first instance final, confirmed that Leonor Cipriano "was brutally tortured by agents of the various Portuguese Judicial Police who remain unidentified."

According to Aragão Correia, the court considered "not to exacerbate" the sentence imposed by the Goncalo Amaral this be a "primary offender" and also the same as being retired from the police.

Marcos Aragão Correia announced that in consequence of this decision, Leonor Cipriano will lodge a formal complaint against the Portuguese government to the United Nations for violating "the most basic gross human rights".

Defence lawyers said the conviction will be sought and the expulsion of Portugal's Human Rights Commission of the United Nations.

Press Statements given by Marcos Aragão Correia

Joana Cipriano case - Clarification

March 18, 2011


Marcos Aragão Correia, acting as Attorney Leonor Cipriano, following our first statement issued today to the media, hereby clarify to the public the following:

1 - As for us previously reported (see copy below), the ruling of the Court of Appeal in Évora that today was disclosed, and confirming the full Court of jury about the torture suffered by Leonor Cipriano, can not be appealed, pursuant to Article 400 of the Code of Criminal Procedure;

2 - Given that they have exhausted the legal remedies at national level and considered the decision of the Court of Appeal of Evora to confirm fully that Leonor Cipriano was the victim of brutal torture by agents of the Portuguese Judicial Police, condemning Gonçalo de Sousa Amaral Antonio Fernandes and Nuno Cardoso to suspended prison sentences, and acquitted the other three defendants, Leonor Cipriano will now make use of international instruments at its disposal;

3 - There were two possibilities in this context: the European Court of Human Rights and the United Nations, however, international standards establish the impossibility of both organizations about the exact same facts;

4 - Thus, given that they already took approximately seven years since the torture that Leonor Cipriano was the victim, and noting the fact that the European Court of Human Rights has an approximate average, to resolve the cases of five years, presents as more advantageous, even if this is not achieved monetary compensation, the case will lead the United Nations, because this organism has a greater institutional weight, greater global coverage and a higher profile internationally than first body;

5 - Following this decision, both Leonor Maria Dominic Cipriano (mother of Joana Cipriano), as António Leandro David Silva (stepfather of Joana Cipriano), will present formal complaints against Portugal, by torture, the Office of the High Commissioner United Nations Human Rights http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Pages/WelcomePage.aspx , with the aim of achieving the condemnation of the Portuguese government for serious violations of their human rights, including those protected by the Convention Against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment, to which Portugal is a signatory, calls on the Committee Against Torture http://www2.ohchr.org/english/bodies/cat/ to investigate and order the Portuguese State, and yet deemed inadmissible, following the acceptance of applications from Portugal to a member of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, as it is hypocritical pretense of the Portuguese government http://www.dn.pt/Inicio/interior.aspx?content_id = 1795478 , for the purposes of these complaints, Leonor Cipriano and António Leandro have signed on, both forensic attorney with special powers.

c) Antonio Fernandes Nuno Cardoso falsified documents in order to give the impression that Leonor Cipriano "fell down the stairs of the PJ in Faro and was not tortured," and is therefore condemned as a perpetrator of a crime of forgery of document to 2 years and 3 months imprisonment suspended for a period of two years;

Joana Cipriano case

May 19, 2011

Important information to the media

Copy to:
Attorney General's Office
Portuguese Lawyer´s Association
International Amnesty

Given the important public interest of all cases of disappearances of children, which includes the interest earned by the case of the disappearance of Joana Cipriano Portuguese child, Marcos Aragão Correia, Attorney of Leonor Maria Domingos Cipriano and António Leandro David Silva, respectively mother and stepfather of this child, hereby publicly disclose the following:

1st - This past Tuesday, May 17, 2011, followed, via registered mail to the High Commissioner for Human Rights of the United Nations, based in Switzerland, a formal complaint against the Portuguese Government by practice of brutal torture against mother and stepfather of the child Joana Cipriano;

2 - According to statistics consulted relatively to the Committee Against Torture, of the UN, this is the first time it was admitted to the United Nations a complaint of this type against Portugal, while all the earlier cases of other citizens against Portugal, for infringing Similar Human Rights, entered the European Court of Human Rights and not the United Nations (there is a legal impossibility to appeal simultaneously to both institutions with the same facts);

3 - We believe that this unprecedented case in the United Nations against the Portuguese government will result in a greater internationalism of the case of the disappearance of Joana Cipriano, leading to an increased pressure on the Portuguese authorities to reopen the case and investigate finally the case with a scientific and correct way, as never done so far;

4 - Attached to this email is in Word format, their joint complaint submitted against Portugal to the United Nations concerning the disappearance of Joana Cipriano and the brutal torture against their parents by agents of the Portuguese state, and we authorize public reproduction of the contents of the document;

5 - Additional information about the case of the disappearance of Joana Cipriano can be found on the official website of the Lawyer of the parents of the child, in the address

Joana Cipriano case: Police accused the magistrate process

06.06.2011 3:55, by Pravda (Google Translate)

Responding to charges from prosecutors, the five members of the Judicial Police who investigated the disappearance of Joana Cipriano girl Algarve, will sue the judge who filed the complaint, TVI news. The MP accused for about three weeks five members of the Judicial Police (PJ), of whom three were charged with the crime of torture during interrogation in October 2004, another element by default for help and a fifth of falsifying documents.

Antonio Cluny, the Union of Prosecutors said he expected the authorities to comment on such statements that it considers "strong" and then a reserve position of the union.

The Union Association of Criminal Investigation Staff (ASFIC) of the Judicial Police (PJ) accused the attorney to draw up a 'part that is a legal aberration, "but expressed? Dislike? the news we want to transform the case against five professionals from the PJ, in case of Joan, a "war? between PJ and the prosecutor.

In a statement, ASFIC / PJ, chaired by Carlos Anjos, clarified that? The statements made by ASFIC were solely a manifestation of discontent by the reasoning of that accusation, "which considers? Be completely unfair? and what? undermine the good name of the institution of the PJ and honor of its employees?.

In the statement, ASFIC? Totally rejects the use by some press? you tried? connect these facts to other investigations in research, as if it were the same thing?.

Among the inspectors of the Judicial Police accused by prosecutors of Faro is one of the men who currently is the coordinator of the PJ criminal investigation in Madeleine case. Indeed, British newspapers are now echoing this charge against Gonçalo Amaral.

Joanna, the girl who disappeared in the Algarve 12 September 2004 in the village of Figueira (Portimão), and whose mother, Leonor Cipriano, and uncle, John Cipriano, were sentenced to 20 to 19 years imprisonment respectively by the child's death . Subsequently, the Supreme Court reduced the sentences to 16 years in prison..

Lawyer for Leonor Cipriano will be tried in February for defamation (Google Translate)

03.01.2012 - 19:57 Por Lusa 03.01.2012 - 19:57 For Lusa

Leonor Cipriano's lawyer, Marcos Aragão Correia, the trial opens on February 9 for allegedly defaming Gonçalo Amaral, inspector of the Judicial Police (PJ) coordinator of the investigation into the disappearance of Joan in 2004.

The hearings will be held at 2. Judgement of the Criminal Court of Faro and Gonçalo Amaral calls for a compensation of three thousand euros Marcos Aragão Correia and Pedro Antonio also accused Sorrows, president of the Association Against Exclusion for Development (ACED).

According to judicial sources, at issue is a document of April 8, 2008, entitled "Report on Torture Leonor Cipriano perpetrated by the Judicial Police," which Aragão Correia prepared for ACED and that was spread by the association.

Goncalo Amaral, who was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment, suspended for the same period in the trial of former agents and inspectors of the PJ accused of torture to the mother of Joan, considered that the report was "damaging the honor and the personal and professional"

"Torture has been proven in final court of appeal and Mr. Goncalo Amaral was convicted in part, precisely because he lied to the court system by stating that there was no torture, when he proved that he had knowledge of the same torture from the moment that it occurred. Logo não existe nenhuma difamação no respectivo relatório”, afirmou Aragão Correia hoje à agência Lusa. Soon there is no defamation in the report, "said Aragon Correia today to Lusa news agency.

Leonor Cipriano's lawyer added that this process of defamation "is a flagrant violation of the principle of res judicata, even when you know that the prosecutor made and maintains the charge of defamation after the judgments that prove unanimously torture".

Aragão Correia requested the intervention of the attorney general's office, Pinto Monteiro, "in order to clarify the inconsistency total and absolute illegality of the prosecutors in this recent horrendous accusation of defamation does not exist."

At the trial of former agents and inspectors of the PJ in Faro in 2009, Good Leonel Marques, Paulo Pereira and Paulo Marques Bom Christopher were acquitted of the crime, while Antonio Nunes Cardoso was sentenced to two years and three months imprisonment with suspended for two years by the practice of counterfeiting.

Gonçalo Amaral was acquitted of the crime of omission of denunciation.

Subsequently, the Court of Appeal upheld the sentences of Évora.

The disappearance of Joana in the village of Figueira, in Portimão, occurred September 12, 2004. O corpo da criança, na altura com oito anos, nunca apareceu e Leonor Cipriano eo irmão, João Cipriano, foram condenados a 16 anos de prisão cada um pelos crimes de homicídio e ocultação de cadáver. The child's body at the time eight years, and never appeared Leonor Cipriano and her brother, John Cipriano, were sentenced to 16 years in prison each on charges of murder and concealment of a body.

Update: Lawyer who has been accused of defamation by Gonçalo Amaral wants Attorney General intervention
