Paulo Penedos has lost his last appeal to the Constitutional Court. The appeal brought by Ricardo Sá Fernandes did not accept the Ratton Palace's advisors, which means that Penedos's defense had run out of ordinary appeals. Sá Fernandes, however, will not give up.
Sentenced by Penedos's defense for a four-year death sentence for committing an offense lawsuit, he will still try to take the final step: after the final and unworkable decision to be issued by Porto Relation, Ricardo Sá Fernandes to request the resumption of court proceedings before a court of first instance to file an application to suspend the four-year prison sentence, the attorney confirmed to the observer.
Sá Fernandes, in his observations to the observer, claims that the punishment law has changed to conditions that are more favorable to his client.
It is recalled that the trafficking offense attributed to Paulo Penedos is directly related to the alleged influence of the lawyer on José Penedos, his father, the former president of REN – Redes Energéticas Nacionais and one of the eleven convicted convicted of imprisonment. In the case of the former REN leader, this is a three-year prison sentence and three months in the case of a passive corruption offense.
Ricardo Sá Fernandes also confirmed that he filed a complaint against the Portuguese State before the European Court of Human Rights two years ago. In this case, a decision is expected in the next two years that, in the event of a conviction, Portugal may be required to pay Paul Penedos compensation.
