Huambo: The Justice and Human Rights Minister, Francisco Queiroz


The minister made the statements to the press at the end of the second session of Local Government, presided over by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, who among several subjects recommended the application of criminal measures to discourage theft and vandalism of public equipment.

In addition to the performance of the organs of administration of justice, the minister also requested the involvement of society, in general, in order to achieve the desired objectives, through the denunciation of crime-doers.

Francisco Queiroz also stated that police stations are prepared at the level of the 18 provinces of the country for greater interaction with the population so that the denunciations are made punctually, aiming at a quick action of the justice organs.

According to the minister, these measures are aimed at counteracting this phenomenon, which has been increasing in the national territory, above all, the theft of electric cables, hospital and school institutions equipment.
