Luanda — The new organic law of the State's Attorney General Department, which was approved by the National Assembly last August, has upgraded its functional structure by creating new internal organs, said last Friday in Luanda the Attorney-general, João Maria de Sousa.
The Attorney-general was speaking at the yearend greetings ceremony with staffs from his institution, having added that the new law has broadened the competences of the institution, adjusting them to the country's Constitution, which was approved in 2010.
He also revealed that in view of the creation of the National Directorate for the Prevention and Fight against Corruption, it is a duty of the Prosecuting Counsel to promote the fight against corruption, money laundering, computer crimes and other criminal actions that have a transnational character.
He also announced that in due time his institution will reveal some cases relating to crimes mentioned above, in which several foreign citizens are involved.
The ceremony was attended by deputy and assistant Attorney-generals, members of the Prosecuting Counsel's Higher Council, public prosecutors, as well as staffs and technicians of the institution.
