Faro council is at the centre of a corruption probe which saw PJ police raiding the local town hall on Tuesday and naming four people as official suspects, most notably Faro’s deputy mayor Paulo Santos.
According to Correio da Manhã, his ex-wife Sandra Ramos, president of municipal company Ambifaro, has also been named a suspect as well as the company’s general manager Hugo Geraldo and a local lawyer.
PJ police have revealed that the four are suspected of crimes of “passive and active corruption, embezzlement, prevarication and abuse of power”.
Searches were carried out at the town hall, the municipal market, at Ambifaro’s headquarters and at the lawyer’s office.
