"The reform process is underway and during that process Angola (...) has already inaugurated and 20 district courts are installed within the 64 provided for by law and soon, probably next month, we will be in a position to put into operation the court of the relationship of Benguela and Luanda, of the six provided for by law," said Fuki Carlos.
In statements to journalists in Lisbon, while the president of the Supreme Court of Justice of Portugal was receiving his Angolan counterpart, who did not speak to the press, Fuki Carlos failed to comment on the progress of the case known as 'Luanda Leaks'.
Faced with journalists' insistence on Portugal's possible help in corruption cases, Fuki Carlos replied: "Portugal will and will be very useful in improving, perfecting and building the capacity of the Angolan judicial system, I would not say exactly in the process of combating [corruption], but in its entirety. That's why we're here to take the 'know-how' out of the Republic of Portugal".
The programme of the president of the Supreme Court includes meetings with magistrates and rulers during this week.
"We are here [in Lisbon] to pay a courtesy visit and strengthen bilateral relations between the justice sectors of the two countries, and in this way we have a vast program that includes meetings between the two presidents and a meeting with the minister of justice," the secretary general of the Supreme Court of Angola said.
"At the moment we have technicians training here and we will strengthen those ties taking into account the reform process that is taking place in the Republic of Angola. We've come to gain experience of Portugal, which is a little more advanced in relation to us," concluded Fuki Carlos.
