Attorney General Office wants citizens better served

Luanda – Participants in the XXIII Consultative Council of the Attorney General’s Office pledged to respond with greater rigour to the concerns presented to them by the citizens and deliver to the society quick access to their services, especially concerning the reception of complaints and information.

This is expressed in the final communique from the meeting held from 29-31 March in Luanda, under the motto “The Public Prosecution Service for the citizen and the Nation”, which brought together the deputy attorney general of the Republic, deputy attorneys , military prosecutors from military regions, justice and administration officials from all over the country.

With regard to the Law on Precautionary Measures in Criminal Proceedings, the council decided to improve the performance of the Public Prosecutor’s Office with the organs and criminal investigation.

In this context, they recommend the adoption of a new mentality regarding arrests and detentions, observing strict compliance with the law, and in no circumstances tolerating illegal detentions or arrests.

The meeting noted once again the shortag of magistrates and officials, as well as a great lack of financial, technical and material resources.
