The AZOP stated that the HDPA initiated supervisory proceedings against the data controller, the Greek portal, and that the data controller removed the article in which the personal data of Croatian citizens was published. Furthermore, the AZOP stated that the HDPA will continue the supervisory procedure and will inform the AZOP of all relevant information.
