Paulo Portas avoids censure over NATO building contract

Published on 31/08/2017

‘Teflon Man,’ Paulo Portas, the former deputy prime minister in the Passos Coelho government, has been cleared in court of exerting any undue inflence in a building contract awarded to Mota-Engil, where he acts as a consultant.

The tendering process and award to build the NATO school in Oeiras was questioned by the failed bidder, Tecnorém, which claimed that Mota-Engil got the MOD contract because the Director General of National Defence Resources, Alberto Coelho, is a high ranking CDS-PP party member and that he favored Mota Engil due to his connections to Paulo Portas.
