The National Crime Investigation Service (SERNIC) has detained eight people, including two officials from the Centre for the Development of Financial Information Systems (CEDSIF), accused of illegally appropriating large sums of money through the electronic platform.
According to a SERNIC statement, the detainees include four owners of private companies who benefited from the diverted amounts and two SERNIC agents who also received part of the money.
The fraud is said to have been instigated by the two CEDSIF officials, since they alone had the necessary security codes necessary for illicit operations of this nature.
SERNIC claims to be on the trail of another, fugitive member of the group, considered the mastermind on account of his knowledge and computer skills.
SERNIC says the investigation was carried out by experienced agents of standing matching the complexity and seriousness of the crime, and that it was as a consequence of their successful investigation that the eight defendants were identified, captured and imprisoned, and now await the decision of the judicial bodies with jurisdiction and prerogative in the matter.Source: Jornal Notícias
