Luanda — The National Commission for Disarmament of Civilians will intensify its actions of coercive disarmament of citizens in possession of weapons throughout the country.
It was announced on Monday, by the spokesman of the committee, chief commissioner Paulo Gaspar de Almeida, at the end of a meeting held in Luanda, with the provincial and ministerial coordinators.
According to Paulo Gaspar de Almeida, actions will be implemented in all provinces, especially in Luanda, where in recent times there has been an increase in violence with the use of firearms and is the region where it is collected more guns so coercively.
The commissioner of the National Police said that since the beginning of disarmament in 2008 were already collected more than 86,000 weapons, but that the work of police forces will continue, as there are still in the country, deaths caused by firearms among civilians.
"There are citizens who still surrender weapons that are in their possession, but there are still people outside the law who have weapons and are using them to commit crimes. In this context, there is still a enormous work to be done by the end of the work of committees," he explained.
