The Kampfumo Judicial Court in Maputo city yesterday sentenced Nini Satar to a one-year prison term, commuted to a fine, for forging a passport.
In the same case, the court acquitted Sahim Momad, a nephew of Nini Satar who was charged with having provided data for the falsification of the passport, and Sidália dos Santos, an employee at the Migration Services, for lack of evidence.
Speaking to the press after the hearing, Nini Satar pronounced himself comfortable with the decision, but accused the Public Prosecutor’s office of persecuting innocent people, namely Sidália dos Santos and his nephew Sahim Aslam.
“Since the preparatory instruction of this case, I have proved to the prosecutors who were investigating me, and really proved, that they are innocent in this case, but the prosecution, which likes to persecute people, continued detaining them and bringing them to trial,” Satar said.
Satar added that, after this sentence, the Public Prosecutor’s Office should learn not to charge innocent people, but persecute the real culprits instead.
Satar will now serve out the remaining seven years of the sentence imposed on him in the Carlos Cardoso case for violating, in 2015, the probation granted to him by the Judicial Court of the City of Maputo.Source: Folha de Maputo
