Football Leaks was set up
The charges mostly relate to alleged illegal access to data, aggravated extortion, violation of correspondence and computer sabotage
The prosecutors in Portugal said in a statement that Mr Pinto "used various computer programmes and digital tools to enter, in an unauthorised and anonymous manner, the computer systems or email boxes and remove content from it"
Football Leaks provided millions of documents and more than 3.4 terabytes of information to media outlets in the European Investigative Collaborations (EIC) consortium
