Praia, Sep 16 (Inforpress) – People’s Party (PP) vice president welcomed the prision last week of lawyer Arnaldo Silva on suspicions of criminal offenses related to land acquisition and sale in the city of Praia.
At a press conference this Sunday, to take stock of his biweekly meeting, the subject was raised by the members, the party’s vice-president, Felisberto Semedo, said this was “a sign of life within the Cabo Verdean justice” in matters anti-corruption.
“We want to leave our applause here and congratulate Mr Attorney General for the work he has done in recent days, in which he has notified and heard one of the offenders in the corruption and white collar crimes. Here we get more hopeful because we see some sign of life within Cabo Verdean justice,” he said.
In the meantime, Felisberto Semedo expressed his party’s disillusionment with the court, which in his view did not fully play its part.
