MAPUTO — The Mozambican police have arrested all the police officers who were on duty at the top security cells located at the Maputo City Police Command when three dangerous criminals escaped last week.
The spokesperson for the Police General Command, Inacio Dina, told the media Tuesday that a magistrate had formalised the detention of the officers since it is strongly suspected that some of them facilitated the escape.
Investigations were continuing to ascertain the degree of participation of each of them, added Dina.
He did not give the exact date of the escape, or the names of the three escapees but said that two of them were accused of kidnapping and armed robbery, while the third had been charged with the murder of two policemen.
