The IGAE said on Wednesday it operates through transparency, exemption, impartiality and enforcement of the law, so it does endorse neither can be liable any accountability in these alleged decries.

In another part of his statements, the Deputy Attorney General confirmed that the process of fraud attempting against the Angolan State, worth USD 50 billion, involving Thai and Angolan citizens, has already entered the court.
