The Sindicato dos Magistrados do Ministério Público (SMMP) [Association of Public Prosecutors], – the only association in Portugal representing public prosecutors –, is organizing the Regional Conference of the International Association Prosecutors on May 16 to 18, 2019.

The event will take place at the Hotel Porto Palácio located in one of the city’s main avenues.

“The Public Prosecution Service in criminal justice: organization and strategy” is the theme of this 17th European Regional Conference 2019 and we will have speakers from several countries.

In addition, we will organize an interesting social programme that allows all participants, one the one hand, to mingle and exchange experiences with prosecutors of different nationalities, and on the other, to see some of the region’s most emblematic sites, as well as taste the Portuguese gastronomy and the traditional Port wine.

It’s very important for us to promote contact between prosecutors from different countries and we will do our utmost to help you feel at home.

We have signed a protocol with the hotel where the event will be held with a view to establishing accommodation conditions more favourable to those attending the conference.

We look forward to seeing you in the beautiful city of Oporto.

SMMP’s President
António Ventinhas
