PR visiting the Institute of Legal Medicine says that the unit will be oriented towards scientific training

The Institute of Legal Medicine will be aimed at scientific training, said the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, as part of the inspection visit he carried out, this Tuesday, to the works on that infrastructure. Furthermore, this forensic unit, considered the first institution of its kind in Angola, will also contribute to responding to the needs of the police forces.

According to João Lourenço, the future institute is being thought of as an infrastructure geared towards training, as well as helping to respond to the needs of police forces, as it will be useful in situations where there are deaths with signs of crime, writes Angop.

However, the head of state considered that, taking into account the number of drawers, the role of the institute should go further.

"Judging by the number of drawers that the infrastructure will have, around 200, it will certainly end up also performing the function of a morgue, taking into account the conditions in which municipal morgues still find themselves", he said, quoted by Angop.

During the visit to the project – completed at around 14 percent – the President of the Republic was accompanied by the Secretary of State for Health, Leonardo Eduardo, the provincial governor of Luanda, Manuel Homem, among others.

According to Angop, the future institute – which will have two hundred drawers, as well as carrying out pathological and criminal anatomy autopsies – could be ready this year, with forecasts pointing to the completion of works towards the end of this year.

Also this Tuesday, the head of state also noted the works at the Hospital Geral dos Cajueiros.
