Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa took this position heard by the Lusa agency about the announcement made by the president of the Firemen's League, Jaime Marta Soares, to abandon the Civil Protection structure and the subsequent exchange of words with the Minister of Internal Affairs, Eduardo Cabrita.
In this context, the Head of State appealed to all those involved in avoiding public statements that would make dialogue and understanding even more difficult in a very sensitive area for the Portuguese, such as Civil Protection and, more generally, your safety ".
The Portuguese Fire Brigade announced on Saturday in Santarém, through its president, Jaime Marta Soares, the decision to "immediately abandon" the National Civil Protection Authority (ANPC), in a "radical court" in protest against the approved diplomas by the Government on command structures.
Jaime Marta Soares also reported that the National Council of the Volunteer Firefighters League approved "unanimously and standing up" the decision to suspend all operational information to the Disaster Relief Operations Commanders (CDOS).
Today, the Minister of Internal Administration, Eduardo Cabrita, accused the Portuguese Firemen's League of being "absolutely irresponsible" to leave the ANPC and may jeopardize the safety of people.
"If one does not fulfill his legal obligations, we will take all the consequences, juridical and administrative and criminal, where appropriate," added the minister, before the media.
Jaime Marta Soares has already responded, however, to the statements of the Minister of Internal Administration, to RTP, accusing him of being "dramatizing" and "not telling the truth to the Portuguese" regarding his security.
