The Maputo City Court postponed again on Thursday the delivery of its verdict on the case of “Embraer bribery” to September 13, following some technical constraints that made it difficult to print the court decision. The presiding judge, Fernando Macamo, summoned a group of three journalists from the print, radio and television media to his office to inform them of the technical problems faced by the court and assured them that the new postponement, after a similar action in 22 July, had been agreed with the defendants’ lawyers. “I apologize for the inconvenience caused by a technical problem faced by the printing capacity that made it difficult to print the court decision, which should have been delivered today,” he said. Macamo added that the previous postponement was due to his own health problems, but he is now fully recovered. Remember, the case concerns an US$800,000 bribe paid by the Brazilian aircraft manufacturing company to ensure that Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM) purchased two Embraer aircraft. Those accused of accepting the bribe are former Transport Minister Paulo Zucula, former LAM president José Viegas and former Mozambican manager of South African petrochemical Sasol, Mateus Zimba.
