Almost 15,000 people are currently wanted in Portugal by judicial authorities

These individuals are either untraceable by law enforcement or have repeatedly failed to appear in court to answer charges levelled against them.

The majority of these cases relate to crimes committed behind the wheel, such as driving without a licence or under the influence of alcohol.

People who have failed to have their date with justice face restrictions such as not being able to renew identity documents, use the national health service or pay their electricity bills.
