The alert for the incident was given at 12:35, after the company received a call with a bomb threat. The PSP are still on site inspecting the building, according to a source from the PSP Lisbon Metropolitan Command.
“Initially, only floors 0 and 1 were evacuated, as a preventive measure, but at 2:30pm it was decided to evacuate the entire building. There are about 15 floors,” added the same source.
The authorities found a set of packages “of unknown origin” on the first floor of the building, and an explosive device deactivation team was called.
