PGR says investigation of former deputy PR will advance after end of immunity period

The Attorney General of the Republic said that the investigation of former Vice President Manuel Vicente is a process "will be worked normally" after the period of legal immunity has ended, five years after leaving office.


Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting of the Board of Directors of the PGR, Pitta Grós recalled that Manuel Vicente was legally protected for five years as he held a public office.

The magistrate noted that the PGR is drawing up the final report on the strategy to combat corruption over the last five years and should release, in early December, the balance of asset recovery.

Questioned about the specific cases of Singapore and Hong Kong – where there will be links to Manuel Vicente, who led the state oil company Sonangol for several years –, Pita Grós said that there is money seized or arrested in banks in those countries, “but we are waiting for there to be a court ruling” so that these values and assets can be recovered, without mentioning whether they belong to the former Sonangol strongman.
