Portugal ex-PM Socrates still in custody, more questioning Monday

LISBON (Reuters) - Police transferred Portugal's former Socialist prime minister Jose Socrates back to his cell at a police station late on Sunday where he will spend a third night in a row after his shocking arrest and questioning in a corruption investigation.

Criminal judge Carlos Alexandre interrogated Socrates, 57, on Saturday and Sunday as part of an inquiry into suspected tax fraud, corruption and money-laundering, and the questioning will continue on Monday, Socrates' lawyer Joao Araujo told reporters.
