Angola: Extradition Accord Comes Into Force Soon

Luanda — A co-operation protocol signed recently between Angola and Portugal, related to extradition of national citizens of both countries, will come into force soon, says the Justice and Human Rights minister, Rui Mangueira.

The official said so when making an assessment of the activities at the Ministry, since October 01, 2012.

He said there is also a similar dossier with Brazil, taking into account that there are many Angolans detained in that country.

The Minister said it is a gesture related to the accomplishment of human rights principles, signed by the Angolan Government on behalf of the state and of the nation.
