PJ police conduct searches of Setúbal town hall

Investigation centres on “public procurement processes”

PJ police are this morning searching offices of Setúbal town hall. 

According to an official source at the municipality the searches are connected to “public procurement processes in the area of urbanism”.

No further details have yet emerged.

Setúbal town hall was very much in the public eye last year for the fact that it employed Russians to ‘welcome’ Ukrainian refugees, who complained of being made to feel distinctly  uncomfortable.

Updates on the details of this investigation will come in due course.
