More than 2,000 criminal cases were investigated last year by the National Criminal Investigation Service (SERNIC) in Zambézia, provincial sector director Armindo Bichame revealed this week in Quelimane.
SERNIC Permanent Secretary Júlio Mendes challenged SERNIC to increase its procedural speed and crime prevention efforts as well as acquiring infrastructure for better functioning in the districts, and demanded that SERNIC improve cooperation with other administration of justice organs in order to function better and respond to citizens’ concerns.
Mendes also called for the ongoing training of institution technicians in order to raise their level of competence.
Figures revealed at SERNIC’s two-year anniversary celebrations indicate that, during the past year, 2170 criminal cases were processed and clarified, corresponding to an 82.3 percent clear-up rate.
During the course of the occasion, SERNIC received three vehicles, two bicycles and computer equipment intended to strengthen its institutional and operational capacity.Source: Jornal Notícias
