CPLP attorneys general meet in Luanda on role in environmental protection

The attorneys general of the Republic of Portuguese-speaking countries will meet in Luanda, for their annual meeting, next Thursday and Friday, according to an Angolan official.


The national director for Organization, Planning and Statistics of the Attorney General's Office (PGR) and sub-Attorney General of the Republic, Gilberto Mizalaque, who was speaking to journalists on the sidelines of a meeting of the Board of Directors of the body, added that in debate at the meeting of prosecutors of members of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) will be the role of the Public Prosecutor's Office in preserving the environment.

At this Monday's council, to which all bodies linked to the PGR were invited, a balance was made of activities and functioning, as well as the difficulties that arose throughout the year.

Among the difficulties that the PGR identified are issues related to facilities and working conditions, but Gilberto Mizalaque stressed that "there is an effort to improve working conditions", namely through the allocation of vehicles for judicial proceedings.

"They are still not enough to overcome all the difficulties, but little by little we are mitigating these problems", he underlined, noting that he also keeps doors open to dialogue with the National Union of Justice Technicians of the Attorney General's Office.

The union called for a strike between the 14th and 18th of this month and admitted a new strike soon, with essential demands being the payment of a subsidy of 30 percent, which dates back to September 2012 and began to be paid in July, but with a delay of ten years, and the lack of a remuneration statute.

Gilberto Mizalaque reinforced that the PGR has maintained "permanent contact", stressing that there was no break in the negotiations and that there was a remarkable achievement, which was the payment of a subsidy that had not been paid for ten years and that was unblocked.

"We don't know the reasons [for the strike], we remain committed to our work, fighting to improve the conditions of all PGR employees, whether magistrates or justice technicians", highlighted the same official.

The Board of Directors also analyzed the functioning of bodies created this year at the Courts of Appeal in Luanda, Benguela and Lubango, as well as the challenges faced by the Public Ministry in these instances, as well as in terms of the deconcentrated functioning of the PGR at the level regional.
