National Criminal Record complaint to any person responsible

The website of the National Criminal Registry provides information on criminal records of the criminal registry services of the Prosecutor's Offices of the country and the Independent Criminal Registry Department of the Central Service of the Ministry of Justice, as well as on the ways and procedures required to criminal record.

I imagine you all understand the seriousness of the information contained in the National Criminal Record. So yesterday after our publication about the hack of the Ministry of Development and the finding that the page still uses HTTP protocol instead of secure HTTPS, a reader of posted a complaint through our Facebook page.

The reader tells us:

But let's go back to the SSL effect which does not exist and if there is it is free from Lets Encrypt. Let's take a look at another country and what certificate it uses: and all (*) subdomains are secure with Sectigo Wildcard SSL Certificates. They cost a little more but are important for governments who consider cybersecurity to be a priority.

I wonder how they talk about e-Government with such crap on the internet.
