in News · 31-08-2017 13:13:00 · 0 Comments

Several high ranking health officials have been called to answer questions raised over trips to China which were reportedly fully paid for by mobile companies and operators.

Portuguese operator NOS confirmed it paid for the flight tickets of five Health Ministry officials and nine others to China.
The trip included a visit to Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Huawei.
Further reports say all expenses were covered during the trip back in the summer of 2015.
Portuguese law currently forbids state officials to receive gifts in excess of 150 euros, with only a small number of exceptions.
