"Heightened security is in place as the trial of Portuguese ‘whistleblower’ Rui Pinto is due to open in Lisbon on Thursday. Concerns for 31-year-old Pinto’s safety are paramount. 

"As his lawyer William Bourdon has said: “Thanks to (Rui Pinto’s) actions, many investigations have been and will be initiated, revealing huge financial scandals that cripple our democracies”.

"Up until relatively recently the young computer genius had been derided in the Portuguese press as a ‘hacker’. But it has become increasingly clear that his investigations – albeit unauthorised – have thrown up an insidious underbelly of corruption that has managed to operate in plain sight for years."

"Fugitive U.S. intelligence leaker Edward Snowden will be one of 45 witnesses testifying in Portugal in defence of Rui Pinto, whose trove of 70 million documents exposed the dealings of European soccer clubs, Pinto’s lawyer said on Monday. "
