THE PORTUGUESE DREYFUS,Captain BARROS
BASTO (BEN ROSH)
Request to the National Assembly (Parliament)
Subject: Request for the re-instatement in the Army of captain Arthur Carlos Barros Basto of the infantry, who was the victim of political-religious segregation in the year 1937.
The present petition is based on the grave violation of human rights and the intolerable violation of the core of fundamental rights materially protected by the constitution of the Portuguese Republic which requires the intervention of the Parliamentary commission for constitutional Affairs, Rights, Freedoms and Guarantees for the following reasons:
1. At a time when anti-Semitism reigned throughout Europe, when millions of human beings were led like cattle to the slaughterhouse, in Portugal, an army officer, Arthur Carlos Barros Basto, was sanctioned for being a Jew and practicing the Jewish religion.
7. April 25* may have corrected many injustices of the past, but at least one man was forgotten, Arthur Carlos Barros Basto. The Jew was forgotten.
By these means,
Rui da Silva Leal (Lawyer)
