Public Prosecutor's Office repudiates attacks on magistrates and justice facilities

Ministério Público repudia ataques contra magistrados e instalações de justiça

The Public Prosecutor's Office (MP) repudiates the wave of attacks, namely assaults on the residences of magistrates and judges in Manica province.

The document to which we have had access states that between September 2023 and February 2024, the residences of magistrates and the facilities of the Manica Provincial Office for Combating Corruption and the Public Prosecutor's Office in the city of Chimoio were vandalized.

In their raids, unknown citizens destroyed and stole property, files and various pieces of equipment seized during the investigation.

"These acts are an affront to the administration of justice, because they call into question the foundations of the democratic rule of law and weaken the actions of the institutions of justice that are the bastion of citizens in the search for solutions to their disputes," it reads.

In the note of repudiation, the MP urges magistrates not to allow themselves to be intimidated, and promises to identify and hold responsible the perpetrators of the vandalizations.
