Luanda - The President of the Republic, João Lourenço, Tuesday praised the commitment of the Attorney General's Office (PGR) in the fight against "white collar" crime.

Speaking at the swearing-in ceremony of twelve new deputy attorneys-general, president João Lourenço recalled that in recent years the Attorney-General's Office has been fighting hardly against white-collar crime.

President Lourenço said he expected the new deputy public prosecutors to be more dynamic in strengthening the work of the PGR.

Besides the courts, he said, the Public Prosecutor's Office plays a "very important" role in the administration of justice. 

During the same ceremony, held at the Presidential Palace, João Lourenço swore in the new commander of the Angolan Navy (MGA), Jorge Manuel dos Santos, to whom he recommended greater dynamics in the discipline and organisation of this branch of the Angolan Armed Forces.

João Lourenço wished the newly sworn-in commanders success in the performance of his duties.

Speaking to the press at the end of the ceremony, the new commander of the MGA said that the mission is to keep the branch up to the challenges, with a view to the defence of territorial integrity, particularly in maritime space.

General Jorge Manuel do Santos, who has already held the post of director of the Angolan Armed Forces War College, replaced Admiral João Pedro da Cunha in the post.

Ana Carla Luís da Costa e Silva, Domingos Joaquim, Eduarda Passos de Carvalho Rodrigues Neto, Gilberto Mizalaque Balanga Vunguer and Graciano Francisco Domingos were sworn in as deputy public prosecutors.
