Gilson Paiva Biography
Gilson Paiva, 36, subjected Sara Andrade and her mother Rita to terrifying phone calls during which she warned: ‘Don’t worry, I’m going to buy gas. I’m going to set you on fire and I’m going to kill you.
Paiva, a Portuguese national, who lives in Salford, Greater Manchester, has four children aged 13, 10, eight and two, two of whom are Mrs Andrade’s.
Police arrested Paiva after he appeared at the victim’s home dressed in a high-visibility jacket and cut his Internet cable with a pair of tweezers.
He had a prior 2019 conviction for threatening Ms. Andrade.
He admitted criminal harassment and harm, but received a nine-month sentence suspended for two years at Minshull Street Crown Court.
Paiva also received an indefinite restraining order forbidding him to communicate with Miss Andrade and her mother, but he is still allowed to see her children.
In an inconsistent 12-minute call to a family friend prior to his arrest, Paiva, who was drunk, said: ‘We are going to die together.
Tell her I’m going to set her and her house on fire. She is going to die with fire on her body. I’m going to kill her, her mother and everyone. ‘
Sentencing the judge Mr. Registrar Ian Harris QC told Paiva: ‘His behavior of him was shameful during that period.
I have no idea what crossed your mind to make these scary and abusive threats.
David Toal prosecuting, said:
“ He would be verbally abusive often after periods of heavy drinking and, in 2019, Sara ended the relationship.
Shortly thereafter, the defendant attended the address of her home and knocked on the front door before hitting the back windows with a set of metal stairs.
The police were called and the accused was arrested. In June 2019, she was given a 12-month probation and a restraining order was imposed.
It appears that after that, the relationship stabilized and the defendant would routinely see the children without incident at Sara’s home.
But for unknown reasons, in October of last year he called Sara’s mother around 12 at night and said: “I’m going to kill you because you won’t let Sara take me back to the house.”
Rita was scared and hung up. The defendant called again, but Rita did not answer and then blocked her number.
However, despite this, the accused kept trying to contact her. The next day he called again, this time from a private number, and when she answered Rita she threatened her saying: “Your days of life are numbered.”
That same day, numerous unanswered calls were made from a private number, until midnight and 2 am.
Around the same time, he was also threatening and abusing Sara herself.
Around 11 p.m., he called his daughter’s mobile phone, who was 11 years old at the time, Sara answered, and the defendant, who sounded like he was under the influence of alcohol, began making threats within two minutes. call.’
Sara attributed her words to alcohol and did not consider them serious.
But then the defendant called a friend of his and during that call, which lasted about 12 minutes, he made a series of threats to Sara that he asked her to pass on.
During the call, which was recorded, Paiva said: ‘I am going to light a fire here alive.
Sara is going to die. I’m going to buy gasoline and set it on fire.
‘We are going to die together. Tell her I’m going to set her and her house on fire.
‘She is going to die with fire on her body. I’m going to kill her, her mother and all of her. ‘
Later, Miss Andrade’s brother, Rito, was at home when Paiva opened the front door to find Paiva in the doorway wearing a high-visibility jacket and holding a pair of pliers saying, ‘Tell your sister I’ve been here’.
Rito realized that the Internet and television were no longer working and discovered that the Internet cable had been cut. Police were alerted and Sara said she feared that he represented a danger to her and her family.
In the interview, Paiva denied any threats, claimed that Sara was lying, and said that she only cut the internet cable because she was paying for Wi-Fi.
In mitigation, defense attorney Adrian Farrow said: ‘At that stage he was abusing alcohol and it led him to commit the crimes the way she did. I do not seek to minimize the threats made.
He has four children. They are 13, 10, eight and two. The intention of the accused is that he can continue the relationship with these children. ‘
Paiva was also prohibited from communicating with Miss Andrade and her mother under the terms of an indefinite restraining order, although she will be allowed to see the children.
He was also ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work.
