MOZAMBIQUE’S A-G VISITING NAMPULA PROVINCE WITH GRAFT, MONEY LAUNDERING TOPPING AGENDA

NAMPULA, MOZAMBIQUE– The high levels of corruption and money laundering are at the top of the agenda for the three-day visit to the northern Mozambican province of Nampula by Attorney-General Beatriz Buchili beginning Monday.

The director of the Central Office for the Fight against Corruption (GCCC), Ana Maria Gemo, who is also Buchili’s spokesperson, said Nampula province shows the largest number of cases opened in the area of corruption, economic and financial crimes, and particularly money laundering.

She added that, despite preventive actions taken by the bodies of the administration of justice, the situation was tending to worsen. Gemo cited the fact that, in the first quarter of this year alone, corruption cases were opened against the managers of 22 schools in the province.

Measures are being taken, but the crimes are continuing, and this is what worries us. Major interventions are underway at all levels to prevent and fight against corruption, and this visit is intended to find solutions, she added.
