Published on 29/06/2017
Portugal’s parliamentary political parties agreed today, June 29th, to set up an Independent Technical Commission to investigate the great fire of Pedrógão Grande in which over 60 people died.
The proposal to set up the inquiry will be voted in on Friday but was not endorsed by the Communists and the Greens. The establishment of the commission was accepted by a large majority of MPs and it will run for a maximum three months.
