6. CONCISE LEGAL PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Португалия

a. Special requirements

Requests for mutual assistance addressed to Portugal are processed in accordance with Portuguese law. However where the other State expressly requests it or if there is an international agreement, treaty or convention to that effect, assistance may be granted in accordance with the law of that State as long as it is not incompatible with the fundamental principles of Portuguese law and does not seriously endanger those involved in the procedure. Persons over the age of 16 must hold an identity document when in public places, open to public or under police surveillance. Where suspects cannot be identified under the procedures laid down by law, they may be taken by the police bodies to the nearest police station where they will be detained for the time strictly necessary to establish their identity, which may not exceed six hours. If necessary, photographs and fingerprints can be taken or other similar evidence recorded; suspects are asked to indicate their place of residence or the place where they may be found. The recognition of persons consists of placing the suspect among other persons with similar physical characteristics and protecting the witness identity.

b. Other useful information

The Minister of Justice may authorize the participation of foreign judicial and police authorities in criminal proceedings to be carried out in the Portuguese territory. Participation is permitted under compliance of the reciprocity condition and only by way of assistance to the Portuguese judicial or police authorities concerned in the proceedings, whose presence and direction is mandatory in all cases.
