Pedrógão Grande ‘communications failure’ inquiry is unlikely to be ‘independent’

Published on 30/06/2017

The selection of the Telecommunications Institute by Minister for the Interior, Constança Urbano de Sousa, looked all very right and proper until it was pointed out today that this institute is a private body funded by a company that also is a shareholder in SIRESP SA.
