LUANDA – The ANGOLA National Police and the Criminal Investigation Service have pledged to intensify the fight against corruption and financial crimes.

National news agency ANGOP says Interior Minister ANGELO VEIGA TAVARES has addressed delegates to the Police Broad Consultative Council in the capital, LUANDA.

He says the law-enforcement agency should combine forces and face offenses linked to corruption, which have been contributing to the difficulties faced by citizens.

Minister TAVARES says dishonesty cases have gone before the Attorney General’s Office in recent times.

He says there is need for global ties among law-enforcement agencies to fight transnational crimes, through INTERPOL, as well as bilateral and multilateral deals in order to recover financial assets abroad.

Minister TAVARES says his Ministry further wants to speed up the training of police officers to combat cybercrime, as well as civilians to help the public to take part in their own security.

However, he has commended the National Police for reducing the crime figures and urged other security departments to continue working for lower records of criminal offenses.

The ANGOLAN Interior Minister recommends more training for the security sector to adapt and respond promptly to modern systems of handling migrants and foreigners, which needs more openness to encourage investment and tourism./Sabanews/cam
