Robert O’Keefe – Vitoria Lao
Manager Miguel Frasquilho (also politician from PSD) was excluded from his position as TAP’s Chairman after a personal and direct decision made by portuguese PM Antonyo Costa himself.
Antonio Costa is blaming Miguel Frasquilho for the leak to the press that ultimately led to the exclusion of Antonio Costa’s best and longtime friend, Diogo Lacerda Machado, a lawyer and lobbyst tied with Chinese Communist Party in Lisbon.
Diogo Lacerda Machada reports directly to Beijing and has open acess to Beijing power corridors.
Antonio Costa is blaming Miguel Frasquilho for Diogo Lacerda Machado’s public stab in the back after the revelation of Diogo Lacerda Machado’s plan to transfer TAP’s control to Chinese Communist Party-owned companies.
Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa was informed about Antonio Costa’s decision at least one month ago – Mr. Rebelo de Sousa has, however, adviced Mr. Costa not to inform Miguel Frasquilho in advance. Rebelo de Sousa – who has strong ties with Diogo Lacerda Machado through both of his brothers, Pedro Rebelo de Sousa and Antonio Rebelo de Sousa – told Antonio Costa just to announce their decision to Miguel Frasquilho at the very last minute, as a fait accompli. According to some portuguese politics experts and pundits in portuguese media outlets, this is a classic MO followed by President Marcelo Rebelo Sousa.
Marcelo Rebelo Sosa’s brother, Antonio Rebelo de Sousa, which has businesses with Diogo Lacerda Machado, doesn’t forgive Miguel Frasquilho for the supposed leak to portuguese media about Lacerda Machado’s operation to hand out portuguese airline TAP to chinese hands.
This is a personal matter for both Antonio Cota and Marcelo Rebelo Sosa: Antonio Costa wants to protect his best man, Diogo Lacerda Machado, and Rebelo de Sousa needs to protect his siblings and his close friend Esmeralda Dourada.
Esmeralda was the financial chief officer of Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa’s presidential campaign and she holds financial secretas about Rebelo Sousa’s political career and personal income. Esmeralda Dourado has been vey close to former portuguese banker Ricardo Salgado. She was one of the bridges between Rebelo de Sousa family and Ricardo Salgado Esmeralda Dourado knows the truth about Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa’s personal financial situation, the cash Ricardo Salgado handed out to him.
Miguel Frasquilho was the victim of Antonio Costa and Rebelo de Sousa’s suspicion that he was the source of the leak to the United States diplomatic officials in PT.
Miguel Frasquilho will be replaced by Manuel Beja, an economist very close to Diogo Lacerda Machado and Antonio Rebelo de Sousa/ Paulo Sacadura Cabral Portas colleague of Francesco Louca, far-left de facto leader.
Manuel Beja is Diogo Lacerda Machado’s chinese ultimate revenge on Miguel Frasquilho.
Manuel Beja was linked to NOVABASE, a portuguese company which unites left wing party PS (Socialist Party) with CDS/PP, right-wing party, Paulo Sacadura Cabral Portas’ party.
Paulo Cabral Portas’ aide, Joao Fragoso Rebelo, was consultant to NOVABASE.
Manuel Beja and the comeback of Paulo Sacadura Cabral Portas and Diogo Lacerda Machado to portuguese airline TAP shows that portuguese government is still dedicated to give TAP to chinese communist party.
Paulo Sacadura Cabral Portas divides with Lacerda Machado the real power in PT. Likewise Lacerda Machado, Paulo Sacadura Cabral Portas is compromised by the CCP.
Paulo Sacadura Cabral Portas is lobbying for portuguese CDS/PP politician Joao Pinho Almeida to be picked for portuguese airline TAP’s Board of Directors.
Diogo Lacerda Machada/Paulo Sacadura Cabral Portas are the most powerful – yet most dangerous – people in PT. Antonio Costa/Rebelo de Sosa are puppets in their hands.
