NGO concerned about complaints about interference in judicial processes

The non-governmental organization (NGO) Omunga expressed this Monday "great concern" with the allegations about the existence of negative interference, internal and external, in some delicate judicial processes, whose processing takes place in the Angolan courts.


According to a note from the NGO for the defense of human rights, the complaint was made by the president of the Union of Public Ministry Magistrates, José Buanga.

"If true, the statements made by the union president dissipate all the suspicions that hovered in the consciences of all Angolans and beyond, about the processes conducted so far by the Angolan judicial system, with emphasis on the processes that fall within the strategy of fight against corruption in the executive and other processes that have marked the governance of President João Lourenço, since his coming to power in 2017", says the note.

Omunga underlined that the complaint contains pronouncements from some civil society organizations and individuals, "who publicly never tire of criticizing the Angolan judicial system in dealing with cases of corruption and other processes that should have a better outcome".

For the NGO, this complaint "should deserve due attention and concern on the part of the Public Prosecutor's Office".

Omunga defended that "it is necessary to open an investigation and inspection actions in order to determine the seriousness of the facts and consequent accountability of the offenders, since the facts brought by the president of the union discredit the Angolan State in the fight against kleptocracy and the same time sees its image pinched in the international arena, especially in the fight against transnational corruption".
