Question:
Which government agency oversees an institution’s practice of personal data processing? Which agency is responsible for prosecuting those institutions that do not abide by the law?

Answer:
It is the mandate of this Office to oversee and coordinate affairs related to the enforcement and implementation of Law no. 8/2005 (Personal Data Protection Act). If a person’s personal data is infringed on, he or she may lodge a complaint with this Office. If follow-up investigation reveals breach as an administrative offence, the Office will penalize the guilty party to an administrative fine; if the case involves crime, the suspect will be referred to the judiciary agencies for further legal actions.
