Lisbon’s City Hall has been fined €1.25 million ($1.4m, £1m) for passing protesters’ details to the foreign embassies they had been picketing.

Portugal’s data commissioner said the mayor’s office had committed 225 breaches of demonstrators’ personal data between 2018 and 2021.

Their details were shared with the the embassies of several countries, including Russia’s, by former Socialist Mayor Fernando Medina’s (nakalarawan) opisina.

Humingi siya ng paumanhin para sa mga paglabag.

Ang ilan sa mga paglabag ay nangyari ilang buwan lamang bago naging publiko ang iskandalo, nang ilan sa mga nagpoprotesta ang nagpahayag ng kanilang mga alalahanin sa konseho ng lungsod, sinabi ng komisyoner ng data.

The mayor’s office is said to have passed on information about the organisers of 52 protests to embassies, including Russia’s, Cuba’s, and Israel’s.

More than 100 other breaches that occurred since 2012 were not covered as they pre-dated the introduction of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – which bans such data sharing – in May 2018.

Idinagdag ng ulat na ang ilan sa mga paglabag ay maaaring makaakit ng mga multa na hanggang €20m ($23m, £16m) bawat isa, ngunit sinabi na ang komisyoner ay umiwas na ipataw ang mga ito dahil sa epekto ng pandemya sa pampublikong pananalapi.

In a statement issued on Friday, the mayor’s office, now headed by Social Democrat Carlos Moedas, said the decision was a “heavy legacy the previous leadership… left to the people of Lisbon”.

“We will evaluate this fine in detail and how best to protect the interests of citizens and the institution,” the statement added.

Isa sa mga naapektuhan ng mga paglabag ay si Ksenia Ashrafullina, isang Russian-Portuguese na organizer ng isang rally sa labas ng embahada ng Russia bilang suporta sa nakakulong na kritiko ng Kremlin, Alexei Navalny.

She welcomed the data commissioner’s decision, but warned that the leaks could have lasting effects on those involved.

“I’m worried about what would happen if I ever needed to go back to Russia,” she told the Reuters news agency.

The revelation of the data breaches caused significant controversy last summer, and is believed to have been a major contributing factor to Mayor Medina’s defeat in last year’s elections.
