According to a report by Expresso, hundreds of certificates of residence of foreign citizens are in question, documents issued by the junta, which contain false address data. This document is a mandatory requirement for foreign citizens to legalise their stay in the country.

The scheme, which is not new, caught the attention of the authorities because there are addresses with more than a hundred certificates issued to them and many of these addresses are garages, shops or offices.

The case has already been reported to the Public Ministry.
