Angola reinforces police cooperation with South Africa in the fight against organized crime

The Angolan national police commissioner, Arnaldo Manuel Carlos, began a visit to South Africa to reinforce cooperation in the fight against organized and transnational crime, the South African Police announced.


"The purpose of the working visit is for the Angolan police force to assess, obtain and share knowledge on how the South African Police [SAPS] prevents and combats transnational, organized and emerging crime trends ", explained, in a statement, spokesperson Athlenda Mathe.

The national spokesperson for the South African police said that the two security forces have maintained a partnership since 2017 to "prevent and combat cross-border crimes, including drug trafficking, human trafficking and mineral theft".

In this seven-day visit to South Africa, the Angolan delegation includes senior officers and managers from the Angolan criminal investigation service, the Natcortics investigation unit, the environmental and natural resources investigation unit, and the head of Angolan INTERPOL, according to the note from the South African police to which Lusa had access.

The national delegation will also participate in South Africa's current crime-fighting strategy, called "Operation Shanela", which has to date arrested more than 350,000 suspects of various crimes, including murder and rape.

The visit will culminate with a meeting next week, in Gauteng, where Johannesburg, the economic capital, and Pretoria, the country's capital, are located, between the South African Police Minister, Bheki Cele, and the Interior Minister, Eugénio Cesar Laborinho, said South African police spokeswoman Athlenda Mathe.
