After the Prime Minister had been in the debate in Parliament and had reiterated his availability to provide all the clarifications that the CPI understood, the PS prevented the requests from Chega, Iniciativa Liberal and Bloco de Esquerda, requests after it became public that the Information and Security Service intervened in the recovery of the computer of former assistant to João Galamba, Frederico Pinheiro.

None of them fits in the object of this CPI“, justified the socialist deputy, Bruno Aragão, referring to the requirements.
