A real estate agent in Portugal has been charged with fraudulently buying property from a woman for £15,000 a year to cover the cost of her child.

In June, police in Portugal arrested the agent, Pedro Nuno, for allegedly buying a villa in the city of Alvalade for the woman’s son in 2013.

After the agent sold the property to his son, Nuno bought another villa for a further £15.5, police said.

He is now facing a charge of fraudulence, the police said in a statement on Tuesday.

The police added that they have received a “substantial amount of information” from the woman, who is a Romanian citizen.

Nuno’s attorney, Sergio Martins, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday evening.

A spokesperson for Portugal’s National Directorate of Investigations told Reuters the investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made.
