Lawyers representing Repubblika and the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation have filed a judicial protest agianst the IT company behind a massive data breach.

The personal details of over 300,000 people were leaked online after they were stolen from the company's servers.

It was reported last week that the data originated from a list created by the Labour Party which which combines the electoral register with data gathered on voting preference.


The PL, which has tried to distance itself from the breach, has been notified about the judicial protest.

Repubblika and the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation said they could only file the protest today, after the court register opened with urgency. The two NGOs said they were acting on behalf of all the victims of this data breach so that those responsible would be held accountable for their actions.
