Conservative leader Søren Pape Poulsen was among 477 citizens in Viborg that two expelled municipal employees poked, it has been confirmed.
The two Viborg Municipality employees were dismissed at the end of March for accessing citizens’ private data. Furthermore, two more employees received a warning, reports Viborg Stift’s Folkeblad.
The unjustified search of the public’s private affairs was discovered after an internal investigation, which is carried out at least every six months.
It was discovered that a search had been carried out to check who lives at Søren Pape’s address in Viborg city centre, various family relationships and the identity of his doctor.
Poulsen: Reason for search unclear
– I have asked who it is that has been looking for me, but I cannot find out, and that is actually fair enough, says Poulsen to Viborg Stift’s Folkeblad.
“But the case has been reported to the police, and if there is a trial, that and the reason for the searches will be revealed.”
A deputy mayor and a deceased woman who killed her children were also among the other people about whom the staff sought private information.
Last week it emerged that a number of employees in both the Capital Region and Zealand Region had looked in the patient records of the 13-year-old girl who was subjected to serious abuse in West Zealand earlier in April.
The employees have also been sent home.
