Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Opposition awaits answers before enquiry decision into PM's central bank ties




Lisbon,Nov.23,2022(Lusa)– The parliamentary leader of Portugal's PSD (opposition social democratic) party said on Wednesday that the party would decide whether to move forward with a parliamentary commission of enquiry into the relationship with the Bank of Portugal, "depending on the answers" from the prime minister to questions that the social democrats have raised.
"We have never ruled out this hypothesis," said Joaquim Miranda Sarmento, when asked by journalists in parliament if he would consider moving forward with this parliamentary instrument in the future, after the party announced on Tuesday it had sent 12 questions to prime minister António Costa, whose content Lusa published this morning.
The leader of the social-democratic bench argued that "at this moment what is needed, what was more relevant, was to put a set of questions to the prime minister", which have already been entered in parliament, and which he hopes will be answered "as soon as possible".
"Depending on the answers, we will take a decision on the continuation of this process," he added.
Asked whether he would vote in favour of the proposal for a commission of enquiry on the same subject already delivered to parliament by the Chega party, Miranda Sarmento left that decision for later.
"It is a decision we will take in due course and depending on the answers to these 12 questions," he said.
The PSD parliamentary leader declined to answer suspicions raised by Chega that the Social Democrats might have chosen to ask these questions as a "delaying tactic" to protect former and current party leaders in the area of banking.
"Chega has this practice of seeking to throw mud over the discussion, we are not going after polemics, we are going after the facts and what matters to the Portuguese," he said.
Joaquim Miranda Sarmento explained that following the book based on the testimonies of former Bank of Portugal governor Carlos Costa, the PSD considered that it makes "a set of revelations about the relationship of the prime minister of the Bank of Portugal in banking matters".
"Whether in relation to the influence that the prime minister tried to have with the Bank of Portugal for the appointment of Isabel dos Santos to the board [of BIC], or in Banif," he explained, saying that the party expects "a full clarification of what happened in these two matters."
In the questions, Miranda Sarmento detailed that the PSD wants to know if the phone call reported by Carlos Costa with António Costa took place - which he considered "practically confirmed" - and "what reasons led the prime minister to violate the independence of the central bank so grossly".
"And how did the prime minister become aware, so quickly, of the meeting between Isabel dos Santos and the governor, what channels of communication existed?" he questioned, saying that the meeting took place in the morning and the phone call was made in the afternoon.
At issue, according to the former governor and in a version contested by the prime minister (who has already announced a lawsuit against Carlos Costa for "false and offensive" statements), is a phone call from António Costa on April 12, 2016 in which the prime minister allegedly told him that "one cannot treat badly the daughter of the president of a country that is a friend of Portugal," in what he understood as a request for the Bank of Portugal not to remove Angolan businesswoman Isabel dos Santos (daughter of the then president of Angola José Eduardo dos Santos) from the board of BIC.
In relation to Banif, the PSD wants answers about "the aim and objectives" of the letter sent by the government to the European Central Bank and the European Commission, "without the knowledge of the central bank and Banif" and what was the relationship of the letter with a TVI news report from the previous day that said the bank would be wound up, "precipitating a run on deposits and the winding up of the bank itself".
The PSD parliamentary leader explained that the party also wants to know what contacts the government had made, prior to the winding up, with the competition authorities and the ECB, if there had been any contacts with potential buyers, and if António Costa was aware of "possible contacts between the Santander bank [which bought part of Banif] and the then finance minister, Mário Centeno," the current governor of the Bank of Portugal.
According to the constitution, MPs have the power to "ask questions to the government about any acts of the government or the public administration and get an answer within a reasonable period of time, except when the law provides for state secrecy.
The regulations of parliament specify that "the government and the public administration should respond with the urgency that the question justifies, and the response should not exceed 30 days".
"Whenever the government or the public administration cannot respond within the prescribed time limit, they should communicate this fact in writing to the speaker of parliament, presenting the respective justification also in writing", it is added.
