The Tancos commission of inquiry has heard evidence from former intelligence chief, Júlio Pereira, who avoided the assertion that foreign agencies already had shared a menu of weapons that had been requested by criminal organisations and that this list coincided with the weapons and explosives stolen from the army base.

At the end of the hearing, MPs on the commission asked about this ‘shopping list’ theory, as said list had been provided by foreign secret services at a meeting of the Counter-Terrorism Coordination Unit (UCAT) following the theft at Tancos in 2017.
