Thai Swindle: Supreme court rules on case Tuesday

Luanda, ANGOLA, April 16 - The ten defendants involved in Thai case are set to know the verdict of the trial on Tuesday, one year and three months after being detained on charges of USD 50 billion scam case against the Angolan State.,


The Public Prosecutor's Office (MP) also charged four Angolans, four Thais, one Canadian and one Ethiopian, with offences ranging from forgery of documents, fraud, criminal association and money laundering.

At least 38 witnesses are part of the trial of the case, which dates back to November 2017, when the Criminal Investigation Service (SIC) detained a group of ten people.  

SIC's investigations, however, concluded that there was no available line of credit from this company that would come to Angola at the invitation of the Angolan defendant Celeste de Brito.

The lawsuit involves Angolan figures such as ex-director of former Technical Unit for Private Investment (UTIP) Norberto Garcia, Arsénio Manuel, CEO of Jango Yetu (housing) Cooperative, which belongs to the Angolan Armed Forces ( FAA).

The four Thais arrived in Angola to set up a branch of Centennial Energy Company, Limited, with a view to allegedly investing USD 50 billion in the country.
