Portuguese law

A Portuguese commission set up to evaluate the possibility of posthumous reintegration of Barros Basto says that he must make the request himself.

The objective of the piece was to vilify the only strong Jewish community of Portugal and the 2013/2015 legislation that allowed Jews of Sephardic origin to acquire Portuguese nationality.

“There are already four countries interested and asking questions about this sensitive subject”, according to a well-informed source.

Barros Basto foi expulso em 1937 por praticar rituais judaicos.

Barros Basto was expelled in 1937 for engaging in Jewish rites.

Request aims to reassure the Jewish community.
