Murat: Friend of PJ/GNR
Local translator Gaynor de Jesus, 32 told about Murat and his relationships with PJ and GNR:
I didn't realise he spoke that good Portuguese, to be honest, I never pictured him as a translator. I never even realised that he had such a good relationship with the local police.
Ms de Jesus told Sky News: "I do know that he has been the official translator for the police. All witness accounts, everything that's been coming into them, he has had first-hand information.
He told me that in front of GNR (Guarda Nacional Republicana) officers, who I also know. They said nothing, they laughed and joked, they nodded, they seemed to confirm what he was saying was true.
