TVI issued a report on Thursday, November 15, about the IRA, an Animal Intervention and Rescue group.
Ana Leal, who is in charge of investigative reporting for TVI's "Jornal das 8", was in the channel's information space this Friday, November 16, to comment on the reactions to the report on the IRA, an Animal Intervention and Rescue group .
In a conversation with José Alberto Carvalho, the journalist from Queluz de Baixo station revealed that, in the last 24 hours, the journalist André Carvalho Ramos, who signs the report, has received threats. "There are threats to André Carvalho Ramos, the TVI journalist, for example," said Ana Leal.
The pivot of TVI also stressed that since the report was aired, there has been an attempt to "discredit". "Something that surprises who is following in these last 24 hours this controversy that has generated is the attempt of disbelief, of total aggressiveness and even of threats – and here we are already talking about suspected of several criminal acts – that affect some of the people , particularly on Andre, the TVI journalist, and about the people who had the courage [de dar o testemunho]", emphasized José Alberto Carvalho.
"They are betting on a campaign to discredit," added Ana Leal.
