Mozambique attorney general Beatriz Buchili was reappointed for one more term by President Filipe Nyusi.
“When we started our governing processes, we defined fight against corruption as one of the strategic objectives of our actions. We were aware of the complexity for a reactive character of the process,” said the president.
The president was speaking during the swearing-in ceremony of Buchili for another five-year term and the appointment of Alberto Paulo as deputy Attorney General.
He mentioned institutional coordination as one of the challenges for the fight against crime in the role of the Public Prosecutor.
Nevertheless, the president recognized that the magistrate is consolidated and there are more and more evidences of the institution relevance as a social actor and representative of state in defending its interest.
Buchili was first appointed as Attorney General in 2014 by then president Armando Guebuza, replacing the judge, Augusto Paulino who claimed to be unfit to continue in the position due to health problems. Enditem
