Abandoned seamen yet to return home from Mozambique
The trial of Jean Boustani in the United States of America produced information of great public interest, revealing details of alleged involvement of senior Mozambican state officials in illicit activities. Cases of payment of millions of dollars in bribes and other gratuities in kind were mentioned in connection with the contracting of hidden debts, Mozambican NGO Centre of Public Integrity had announced in a statement issued last week.
The Centre for Public Integrity (CIP) followed the entire trial, publishing relevant information as it was revealed in court, and has always intended, post-trial, to share all the official information revealed at the trial with Mozambican and Mozambique-based international media, adds the same source..
The transcripts consist of 29 documents in PDF format, totalling over 5,900 pages, all in English. These are official transcriptions, drawn up by the court clerks, containing all that has been said in court- These documents are not of free of charge access to the public. The CIP thus becomes the only entity to make these documents available in their entirety and free of charge.
Given their value, the CIP has already sent electronic copies of the trial transcripts to the Attorney General’s Office [of Mozambique], and has made the same documents available to the public through their website.
To mark the occasion, CIP has announced that the NGO would make a brief statement to the press at 9:30 a.m. at the CIP premises, alluding to the International Day against Corruption, which is celebrated on December 9, in honour of the United Nations Convention against Corruption.
The link has now been shared. This page presents four sets of documents:
