Prada Legal Adviser’s Computer Stolen

Prada Legal Adviser’s Computer Stolen


AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

NOVEMBER 30, 2002

Alessandra Pandarese reported this morning the theft of her laptop computer from the premises of her supporting law firm in Auckland. Ms Pandarese is the principal legal advisor to Prada Challenge 2003 and secretary-general of Challenger of Record Management (CORM).

Ms Pandarese said today: "I arrived at the Norton White offices around 10.00 am this morning for a meeting. I went into my office on the ground floor at the back of the building. The office has a window opening onto the back of the premises, with a drop of about 5 feet from the window sill to the ground. The window was open when I went into the office this morning, although I always close it every time I leave the office.

As soon as I opened the door to the office, I saw that the computer screen which usually sits on my desk had been knocked to the floor. The screen was lying on the floor, with bits of broken plastic casing around it. The laptop fitted in a docking station connected to the screen, keyboard and printer, was gone. The various cables were disconnected from the docking station, with their loose ends scattered around the desk.

Apart from the laptop computer nothing else was taken from my office. A check was made throughout the premises, and nothing else appears to have been taken from any other office. Laptop computers used by the lawyers who work in the office, and various other valuable computer or electronic equipment were all untouched.

I usually take the laptop with me to use in the other locations at which I work. But yesterday, around noon I had experienced software problems. I closed the computer down and I left it there so that a check could be performed. Auckland Central Police visited the premises to collect evidence and carry out the routine enquiries."
