The information was released, Wednesday to Angop by the Provincial Prosecutor, Celma Cunha, explaining that the complaint consists of the existence of PN personnel who practice acts of arrest in absentia and constitute prisons "ordered" to individuals without warrants.

The Public Prosecutor stated that on the same occasion, the "Mãos Livres" Association also denounced the existence of BPC employees who carry out transactions in their clients' bank accounts, without the proper authorization of the owners, withdrawing amounts illegally.

As a result, Celma Cunha explained that the investigation of this process follows its normal course, only missing some elements to give the conclusion of the investigation in progress.

Angop contacted the regional BPC manager of the region to comment on the matter, declining to make any statement.
