The president of Mozambique’s Social Security Institute (INSS) was arrested on Friday as part of an investigation into the use of funds from the institution in a capital injection into a private airline, a government source told Lusa.
Francisco Mazoio was arrested at Maputo International Airport, when he had just landed from a business trip to the province of Manica, central Mozambique.
The Mozambican public prosecutor’s office considers that Francisco Mazoio and other INSS management violated the law in approving funding for the purchase of four aircraft from CR Aviation.
The company belonged to businessman Rogério Manuel, who died in December 2018 in a plane crash.
