Suspended sentence for tax administrator

The District Attorney General Office (PDG) has announced the delivery of a suspended sentence to a tax administration technician from the Finance Department of Porto for 86 unlawful accesses to the Treasury database.

The PGD of Porto revealed that the female employee was sentenced because she had practised “two crimes of illegitimate access, in a single sentence of one year and six months in prison, suspended in its execution for an equal period.

“The court has found out that the accused, who worked at Porto Finance Office in 2012 and 2013, accessed 86 times, on 75 different days, to the Tax Administration’s computer applications and databases, without being authorised to do so.”

It was also proved that, “the defendant had used the password of two other officials of the Tax Administration team, who were authorised to access the said applications obtaining this way the information in an uncertified manner.”


It would have been nice to know why she was accessing the information, and what she DID with the information she took? Was the information used? Was it sold?
