The applicant is a journalistic organization legally established but the Fact-Checking activity is not clearly described as the object of the company. However, its website is clearly dedicated to the Fact-Checking but it is not exclusively. There are articles and reports published on the Polígrafo's website as well. To reinforce its role, Polígrafo announces itself as the first Portuguese newspaper of Fact-Checking.
Although the organization presented documents that prove its registration as a legally established organization with two partners, the documentation does not include the name of the main shareholder of INEVITÁVEL E FUNDAMENTAL LDA.
There is yet another confusing spot on the About Us page of the Polígrafo website. Even though on the About Us page there is a notice that the trademark belongs to INEVITÁVEL E FUNDAMENTAL LDA, the page lists a distinct ownership structure, with three partners. My suggestion is that this point is made more explicit.
