The defendant Sónia Neves organized unauthorized payment procedures and transferred monetary amounts to the EM-Gestinfortec and Soccopress companies without having provided any service to the Global Fund Technical Management Unit or to the Malaria Control and Combat Programme.

The judgment taking place at Luanda Courtroom started on November 13 of 2017.
