The start of the trial of the lawsuit that SIC filed against presenter Cristina Ferreira has been rescheduled for November, according to the new dates to which Lusa had access.

The trial was scheduled to begin on June 21 at the Sintra court, but was postponed earlier that month.

SIC is demanding compensation of 12.3 million euros from Cristina Ferreira for breaking her contract with the Impresa group station.

Cristina Ferreira will be heard on November 8 in the early morning and the CEO of Impresa, Francisco Pedro Balsemão, in the early afternoon of the same day.

Arguments of fact and law are scheduled for December 6.

In September 2020, SIC filed a lawsuit against TVI’s presenter and director of fiction and entertainment, Cristina Ferreira, at the Lisbon District Court.

Cristina Ferreira’s departure from SIC was announced on July 17, 2020, when it was announced that she would return to TVI in two months as director and become a shareholder of Media Capital.
