The computer with all of a law firm's data from was stolen this morning. The Public Security Police were at the scene. It is the fourth robbery of this nature since the beginning of 2022, when the case that led to the end of the Sephardic law and the public humiliation of the Jewish Community of Oporto was triggered.
The robbery was a repeat occurrence for the victim. She is a lawyer who has worked for many years for several members of the Jewish community in Oporto. The other such robberies that took place last year targeted a lawyer who certified translations for that office and the former president of SIRESP, who had two computers stolen three days after she was dismissed from her duties for allegedly having good relations with the company of a Sephardic Jew.
The office, now robbed for a second time, had a security door, video surveillance camera and alarm. The robbers arrived at 8:24 am with a powerful light aimed at the video surveillance camera so as to blind it, and broke down the door at 8:27 am.

The office has more surveillance cameras inside and none of them recorded what happened. The security company "Securitas" just received a request to clarify the reason.
The robbery could not have been carried out at night. The alarm would have rung in the residential building causing an uproar, as well as in the alarm centre of a security company, which would immediately have called the police.
The Jewish Community of Oporto today formally demanded from the Attorney General's Office "the investigation of suspects that it knows well, given that they fed it from the beginning with completely insane theories. All the anonymous accusations were false." The organisation states that "robbers, convicts, murderers and mentally ill individuals invented the theory of "Operation Open Door" that will have tragic consequences for Portugal and its institutions".
A video published by the Jewish Community of Oporto three weeks ago - SOVIET STYLE ANTISEMITISM IN PORTUGAL - which has already had 26,000 views, gives a cinematic view of the attack that the Community and the Sephardic law suffered at the hands of Lisbon elites and of criminals who carried out robberies, made slanderous allegations, attempted homicides and caused intimidation.
