This assumption is expressed in the proposal of the Law of the Former Combatant and Veteran of the Homeland, whose public hearing began last Friday in Luanda, which states that under the principle of equality and non-discrimination, special protection is granted to citizens who are in the condition of veterans of the homeland, war disabled and relatives of fallen and lost combatants.

According to the document, this principle is applied irrespective of ancestry, gender, race, ethnicity, color, disability, language, place of birth, religion, political, ideological or religious beliefs, educational level, economic or social condition, occupation or place of residence.

The draft law states that rights acquired  are protected and preserved, from the date of ratification of the registration process, except those acquired by fraudulent means.

The proposed Law of Former Combatants and Veterans of the Homeland contains 6 chapters and 75 articles.
