Angola: General Nunda Wants Greater Presence of Military Justice Organs

Malanje — The Chief of Staff of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), general Geraldo Sachipengo Nunda, last Friday in Malanje City defended the need for military justice organs to be permanently prepared to fight crime.

Speaking at the closing of the 5th Seminar on Unofficial Defenders, secretariat department heads and judicial secretaries of military courts, organised in Malanje City by the Supreme Military Court, gen. Nunda stressed that the criminality phenomenon is a world concern.

Thus, he said, the military justice institutions must be ready.

In his opinion, the efficiency of military justice is a stimulus so that each military person can have the necessary qualities for the fulfilment of missions with success.

He also highlighted that the Angolan Armed Forces, being a non-partisan institution, whose primary task is to guarantee the sovereignty, integrity and national independence, must carry out their action in respect for the Constitution, the laws and sovereignty organs, under the authority of the Commander-in-Chief, José Eduardo dos Santos.

In regard to the seminar, Geraldo Sachipengo Nunda said the themes that were discussed were fruitful, because they will contribute to the improvement of the works done by military judges and unofficial defenders.
