Apologize and things are resolved. But even then people don’t have the manhood to admit the mistake. Don’t let this happen. Do you accept excuses if they exist? Let’s see, from now on I won’t accept anything. But I prepared myself for this, of course,” Conceição said. to reporters as she left the Bolhão Criminal Court in Harbour.
