«I am stupefied and saddened by the persecutory attitude of the Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Algarve». This is how Vítor Aleixo, mayor of Loulé, reacts to the fact that CHUA has filed a second lawsuit for defamation against Nuno Marques, leader of the Algarve Biomedical Center (ABC), due to statements regarding broken fans.
Contacted by Sul Informação, the mayor of Loulé, who has been one of the biggest supporters – and financiers – of ABC, highlighted the “extraordinary work” that the Algarve Biomedical Center has done “both in the Algarve and throughout the country”.
«They were innovative, with projects such as measures in nursing homes at the peak of the pandemic», illustrated Vítor Aleixo.
The mayor of Loulé also alluded to ABC's "ongoing" investments, such as the “ABC Loulé Health Research Center”, a center linked to research, health and science, and the Center Active Life (Vilamoura).
Vítor Aleixo guaranteed that the Municipality “will continue to support ABC in everything”.
«Doctor Nuno Marques and his team have our full confidence», he added.
Vítor Aleixo's statements come the day the Sul Informação published a piece about the second lawsuit, brought by CHUA, against Nuno Marques, president of ABC.
Nuno Marques does not resign, but, due to this controversy, he considers that it becomes ««unbearable to continue working» at ABC, a consortium that, in addition to CHUA, also integrates the University of the Algarve, an entity that, in this disagreement, has already on the “side” of the Algarve Biomedical Center.
