Portuguese immigration officers arrested on suspicion of killing UkrainianIn a statement, Portugal's criminal investigation police agency, the PJ, said the alleged crime was committed at a temporary detention center at Lisbon's airport run by the country's immigration and border service SEF.
The hacker Rui Pinto, the source of the revelations of the "Football Leaks" and prosecuted in Portugal for attempted extortion, has been released from pre-trial detention to be placed under house arrest, his lawyers announced on Wednesday.
This 31-year-old Portuguese man, arrested in Hungary and extradited to his country a little over a year ago, "is now subject to the obligation to stay at home, combined with the ban on internet access ", according to a statement sent to AFP by its Portuguese representative, Francisco Teixeira da Mota, and his French colleague William Bourdon.
PSG competing on the Paqueta file?

In January 2019, the AC Milan had invested almost 40 million euros on Lucas Paqueta , but the Brazilian international trained on the side of Flamengo did not give complete satisfaction in Lombardy.
Rui Pinto has "already abandoned the premises of the prison establishment", an annex to the headquarters of the judicial police in Lisbon, they said. While welcoming this decision, his lawyers said they hoped that the judicial authorities would take other measures paving the way for his "total freedom".
Presented by his defenders as a whistleblower, the hacker must be tried for extortion, for having tried to blackmail the Doyen Sports investment fund and various computer crimes linked to leaks known as "Football Leaks" that it organized from the end of 2015.
The revelations of the "Football Leaks" led to the opening of legal proceedings in France, Spain, Belgium and Switzerland and remain to this day the largest leak of information on behind the scenes of the ball.
On the basis of information obtained from these states, the justice system unleashed in early March a large sweep against the main clubs in Portugal and the super agent Jorge Mendes, with dozens of searches and indictments due suspicion of tax evasion when transferring players.
Last January, Rui Pinto claimed to be also behind the "Luanda Leaks", a leak of 715,000 compromising documents for the Angolan billionaire Isabel dos Santos, daughter of former president José Eduardo dos Santos.
