Ganda — The deputy Attorney General of the Republic (PGR), Henriques dos Santos, said that the low rates of crime and the reduction of the excessive preventive detention in Ganda municipality, central Benguela province, are due to the commitments of the police and judiciary bodies of the region.

Speaking to Angop after a visit paid to that locality, the official highlighted that the prosecuting counsel is engaged in the process of training magistrates that will be deployed in the municipality.
