Angola: Justice and Law Reform Process Deemed Pillar of Modernisation

The minister of Justice and Human Rights, Rui Jorge Carneiro Mangueira, pointed out the reform process happening in the area of law and justice as a pillar in the modernisation of this sector.

Rui Mangueira was speaking at the 9th Consultative Council of the mentioned governmental department, which was opened last Thursday in Waco Kungo, central Cuanza Sul Province.

In 2014 it is expected a qualitative step forward in the reform process, whose great challenge will be the presentation of the draft project to society, for further enrichment, thus, paving the way for a more modern justice system, informed the source.

The minister explained that the reform of law and justice includes the creation of infrastructures, staff training and elaboration of legislation.

He also highlighted the recent approval of the Law against Money Laundering and the Law on Searches and Apprehensions.

"The justice sector has to be modernised so that together we can guarantee the respect for the rights of citizens, facing great challenges in 2014, so that in 2015 we can reap the results", emphasised the Justice minister.
