Supreme Court dismisses union leader for criticizing “prostitution” in the judiciary

The Supreme Court (TS) dismissed the coordinator of the installation committee of the union of judicial employees of that body, Domingos Feca, for criticizing the national legal power and considering that it is involved in “prostitution”, according to an official source.


According to the punitive order certificate of the Angolan TS, which Lusa had access to, Domingos Feca was constituted as an arguido following a disciplinary process initiated against him.

The TS reports that the 2nd class law clerk also published, from August 26 to September 15, 2022, through his Facebook social network account, “unfounded accusations and insinuations that discredit” the country's judicial power.

“When political power takes judicial power to bed, the result is this: legal aberration and excrement. When political power pays to get involved with the legal system, this is what it really is… prostitution”, wrote the union leader, a publication reproduced by the Supreme Court as the basis for disciplinary action.

With that, it is observed in the document, dated November 7, 2022 and with the consent of the presiding judge of the TS, Joel Leonardo, “it is inferred that the right to freedom of expression is not an absolute right, it submits to restrictions”.

According to Vital Moreira and Carla de Marcelino, the order argues, “such restrictions aim to safeguard national security and public order, which can be undermined with offenses, unfounded accusations, insinuations, eventually discrediting the targeted public institutions”.

Having analyzed the proposals of the investigator of the process in relation to the measure to be applied, “in view of the seriousness of the offense committed and considering the aggravating circumstances, I apply the disciplinary measure of dismissal, provided for in the Basic Law of Civil Service”, it also refers in the dispatch.
