They are: Anilda Manjate, Reinaldo Júlio, Mussagy Ranchande, Mugare Gabriel and Cristóvão Fanheiro.
For more than eight months the company management has been promising to pay wages but failed to do so, reads the Canalmoz report.
According to the same source, when this morning the workers approached one of the managers of the company, Alfredo Júnior, he would have called the police and they would have all ended up in the first squad where they had been since 1 pm.
