The Public Ministry of Paraná (MPPR) stated that it has launched an investigation to investigate the removal of information from the Transparency Portal of the Legislative Assembly of Paraná (Aleppo). The administrative procedure of the MPPR is being investigated by the 6th Public Prosecutor’s Office for the Protection of Public Heritage of Curitiba.
according to MPPR, the purpose of the survey is to “follow up the unavailability of essential information on the Transparency Portal of the Legislative Assembly of the State of Paraná”. Furthermore, it was determined that the president of Alep be made official to clarify, within a period of 10 days, the reasons for the withdrawal of information from the Portal.
In a note, the Legislative Assembly stated that “it is not aware of any administrative procedure instituted by the MPPR in relation to the Transparency Portal”. See another excerpt from the note:
“The Executive Committee reiterates that the information is undergoing treatment to adapt to the General Data Protection Law (LGPD) and that, as the data complies with the legislation, it will be made available. According to the schedule of the Permanent Commission for the Protection of Personal Data (CPPD), on Monday (22), information related to the salaries of servers, who have already received adequate treatment, will be available, and until Thursday ( 25) information related to the reimbursement of deputies”.
Alep removes data on spending by deputies from the air
On August 11, Alep published in an official journal the removal of data on expenditures on reimbursement of state deputies from the Transparency Portal of the Legislative House.
According to information gathered by the Young Pan Curitiba, each of the 54 deputies has approximately R$ 33 thousand available, which may or may not be used each month. The money is made available for expenses with transportation, telephone, fuel, correspondence, car and property rental, publicity of parliamentary activity, among others.
The data were available for monitoring and controlling the population on the transparency portal until the publication of the executive committee’s act. With the measure adopted, only the control bodies can continue to access data on expenses with the reimbursement budget.
THE Aleppo claimed that rules of the General Law for the Protection of Personal Data (LGPD) were taken into account to restrict access to information. “Alep has set up a special commission to investigate the leakage of information that ends up harming the image of parliamentarians. We never stop publicizing the things that happen here. But unfortunately we had some leaks of this information”, argued the president of Alep, deputy Ademar Traiano.
