Our comrade Gabriel, arrested on January 25 in Portugal, is still locked in the cells of the judiciary of Porto waiting for a possible extradition. The second part of the trial started on 27 January. It still hasn’t begun yet, but it will take place in the next few days.

Until we notify otherwise, the contact address for writing letters of support and solidarity to Gabriel remains the same.

Whilst awaiting more news, his lawyer – who is in solidarity with Gabriel – has anticipated that the amount necessary for the defense will be considerable. You need to rely on and pay punctually those professionals with whom you are obliged to work; and we cannot act without the competing lawyers from Portugal and most likely from Germany.
Therefore, a constant amount of money is urgently needed to manage all the bureaucracy that involves the administrations of justice from three different countries (Spanish State, Germany and Portugal).
Currently the legal situation is as follows:
The Girona prosecutor’s office intends that Gabriel spends another 16 years in jail due to the interpretation of a fusion of non-existent penalties. This denies a special principle (one of the legal reasons why it was possible that Gabriel was released in June 2016), which must be claimed by Germany at the request of Portugal, if optionally, they consider it appropriate.
The extradition order will be frozen while Portugal analyzes the situation, consults Germany about the “special principle” and determines in the situation whether to extradite him or not.
The objective of the defense is the immediate release of Gabriel by recognition of the same “special principle”. If that was not achieved, the objective would be to avoid extradition and serve any supposed outstanding penalty in Portugal, avoiding the harassment that awaits him in the prisons of Spain.
In case of extradition, it would be fought so that this penalty was not fulfilled, applying any redemptions and mergers that until today have not been accounted for, an action that could also be implemented if it met with approval in Portugal.
In any case, you have to work legally so that no prosecution can reopen any previous case and end any possible order of arrest.
At the moment, a bank account has been opened for these purposes, in the name of his partner Elisa, to receive the solidarity contributions by the fastest, most direct and orderly way possible:
