There is concern at the alleged ill-treatment of Rogerio Alexandre de Almeida Camoesas at the hands of an officer of the paramilitary police force, the Republican National Guard (GNR), in Penafiel on the night of 30 August 1995. According to information provided by the victim and a medical clinic's report Rogerio Camoesas, a student, was insulted and beaten with a truncheon by a GNR officer whilst walking with his girlfriend in the park. One of his friends was reportedly later approached by the same GNR officer and abusively threatened not to appear as a witness at any inquiry.
