A GNR soldier was assaulted last Saturday, when he was trying to interrupt a party, in Carvoeiro, in the municipality of Lagoa. The military tried to warn of the fulfillment of the duty of mandatory withdrawal imposed by the state of emergency in force.
The news was advanced by South newspaper Information and confirmed by DN this Monday.
It is the second assault on GNR military personnel, in the municipality of Lagoa, within a week, the newspaper recalls.
Source of the GNR Command of Faro informed the South that the episode occurred around 8:30 pm and that it was the neighbors who called the GNR once a barbecue was taking place. One of the two soldiers on the patrol was beaten with “a bottle of beer on the head” and needed to be stitched on the head.
In view of the aggression against the military, two men, 22 and 44 years old, father and son, were arrested for resistance and coercion. They were released with a term of identity and residence. The case was brought down to inquiry in the Court of Portimão, says the South Information.
On Sunday, March 22, a military officer from the GNR had already been attacked, also in the municipality of Lagoa, by two young men who were in breach of the duty of compulsory retirement.
The attacked soldier told the episode on his Facebook page, a text only shared with friends from the social network, and where he says that “this is the thanks and respect that citizens have towards the authority. It should be noted that it was a situation with a group of individuals that is not worth revealing their nationality so as not to cause hatred that even knowing the state of emergency and all the duties and cares have a family party as if nothing unusual is happening “.
“I take 4 points and a mark for life here, fortunately I don’t have a wife or children, but if I did, what would it be like to get home and see the father or husband in this situation”, andalso describes the military.
