Generals Kopelipa and Dino forbidden to leave the country

Generals Manuel Hélder Vieira Dias Júnior "Kopelipa" and Leopoldino Fragoso do Nascimento "Dino" are forbidden to leave the country. The measure was decreed by the Attorney General's Office (PGR) as part of the 'CIF -China International Fund' process, which investigates the activities of the Chinese fund.

Until the process is completed, the two generals are also subject to the measure of coercion of identity and residence terms and have to report periodically to the PGR, revealed TV Zimbo, cited by Angop.

At the beginning of last month, the PGR decided to establish the two generals as defendants. In mid-October, as part of the ongoing process, the generals delivered several assets and companies to PGR. Among the list of goods delivered were breweries and cement factories, a network of supermarkets and housing buildings that became part of the state's heritage sphere.

The two generals are suspected of having benefited from contracts entered into between the state and the CIF.

Both were linked to the government of José Eduardo dos Santos, having held positions of power. General "Kopelipa" held the post of Minister of State and Head of the Civil House and "Dino" was the Head of Communications at the Civil House of the President of the Republic. Because they enjoy immunity, they cannot be arrested preventively until the indictment is declared.
