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.”
