Isabel dos Santos is negotiating with Luanda to lift the seizure of her assets, by paying the debts contracted with Sonangol and Sodiam. Information is advanced this Saturday by Portuguese newspaper Express0, who cites a source close to the daughter of the former President of Angola, José Eduardo dos Santos.
The weekly reports that there have already been contacts between Isabel dos Santos’ lawyers and the Attorney General of the Republic of Angola. A change in strategy that would have been recommended by a renowned English lawyer, through the office of Angolan lawyer Sérgio Raimundo, and encouraged by José Eduardo dos Santos, who according to Expresso asked his daughter to stop exposing herself in the media and to safeguard assets in Angola.
At stake is a debt of 193 million euros contracted by the businesswoman with Sonangol to enter Galp’s capital, and an investment of 146 million euros made by Sodiam to finance the entry of Isabel dos Santos and her husband, Sindika Dokolo, in capital of holding that acquired De Grisogono jewelery, which this week went bankrupt.
Cited by Expresso, the Angolan attorney general, Hélder Pitta Gróz, considers that the contacts made by Isabel dos Santos’ lawyers are “a still tenuous sign” on the part of the businesswoman.Source: Time24 News
