The judge of Criminal Instruction of the Judicial Court of Mirandela decided to apply the most serious measure of coercion, preventive detention, to a mother, aged 31, detained by the Judiciary Police of Vila Real, on suspicion of having subjected her daughter, now aged 15 years, to prostitution.
At the end of this Tuesday afternoon, after the first interrogation that lasted more than four hours, the Criminal Instruction judge also applied preventive detention to the 64-year-old “client”, resident in a village in the municipality of Mirandela, who also had been detained by the PJ. Both retired to prisons where they will await trial.
