This period ended on January 30th, a date that coincides with the period in which judicial vacations are scheduled.

Thus, only in March will the Luanda Provincial Court begin to assess the main action of the Angolan State, against Isabel dos Santos and assess the grounds for effecting or lifting the seizure.

In the process that is taking place in the Luanda Provincial Court, the Angolan State requests the payment of more than one billion dollars (USD 1.1 billion).
