How can I deal with a case of data theft?

I do IT stuff for an NGO based in Belgium. One of the things we do is organise conferences. Recently our director and his assistant left our employment. The day after this they came into the building to clear their belongings. They also sent out an invitation email to a conference we were co-organising - but our name was not on the invite, but a new organisation - one the director has secretly set up. This invitation email was sent from our office, using our software and one of our mailing lists. Additionally, they made copies of our database and all out mailing lists. Legally, where do I stand, what actions can we take?
