It is already next Thursday, July 22, that the judgment in the “Embraer case” will be announced, involving the former Minister of Transport and Communications, Paulo Zucula; the former Chairman of the Board of Directors of Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM), José Viegas; and the then executive of the South African petrochemical company SASOL, Mateus Zimba. The case, whose criminal proceeding bears the number 52/GCC/2016-IP, is being judged by the 8th Criminal Section of the Judicial Court of Maputo City. The defendants are accused of having accepted bribes in the process of purchasing two E-190 aircraft, from the Brazilian manufacturer Embraer, as well as of committing the crimes of economic participation in business and money laundering. The Public Prosecutor’s Office calls for the defendants to be sentenced to penalties and compensation in the amount of 73 million Meticais, while the defense pleads for the acquittal of all for understanding that the prosecution of the Public Prosecutor’s Office was based on false and fallacious testimonies of those responsible for the Brazilian manufacturer and which has not been proven in the Court.
