Angola wants to recover around 50 billion dollars diverted from the public purse by 2027

The State expects to recover, over the next five years, around 50 billion dollars illegally withdrawn from the public purse, the director of the National Capital Recovery Service (Senra) informed this Wednesday.


Eduarda Rodrigues added that since the beginning of the fight against corruption in Angola, 5.2 billion dollars had been recovered, part in cash and part in assets.

As part of criminal proceedings, 12.9 billion dollars were seized, while abroad 6.1 billion dollars is seized, said the official, who was speaking at the seventh edition of Café Cipra on "Fighting Corruption and the Recovery of Assets", in which the Minister of Justice and Human Rights, Francisco Queiroz, and the Inspector General of State Administration, Sebastião Gunza, were also speakers.

"In Angola, in terms of confiscated goods, we have assets worth 6.7 billion dollars, these are the actual values", she stressed.

The director of the National Asset Recovery Service pointed out that, according to ongoing investigations, 150 billion dollars illegally left the country between 2003 and 2017.

Eduarda Rodrigues stressed that data from the African Union indicate that more than 50 billion dollars leave the continent illicitly each year.

"For those who have any doubts that 150 billion dollars may actually have gone out, just look at this data and we are talking about a period, from the early 2000s to 2017, so this is a struggle, you don't recover from day to day, it is through international cooperation", he highlighted.

According to the official, all the assets recovered to date were within the scope of voluntary deliveries, while in terms of judicial proceedings, the State "continues to run".

"We have seized goods and we are in the fight," she said.
