New offices inaugurated for anti-corruption unit
Maputo, 10 Feb (AIM) – The director of Mozambique’s Central Office for the Fight Against Corruption (GCCC), Ana Maria Gemo, told reporters on Thursday that the speed with which corruption cases can be treated depends on how complex they are.

Speaking immediately after President Armando Guebuza had inaugurated new, modern premises for the GCCC, Gemo said “new cases enter the GCCC every day. They’re not all alike. It’s up to the Office to guarantee that cases are handled speedily, but you can’t say in advance when there will be an outcome, since the investigations take time, due to the complexity of cases”.

Gemo guaranteed that, despite a shortage of staff and of material resources, the country does possess prosecutors and investigators who can handle corruption cases.
During the ceremony to inaugurate the new building, Gemo paid homage to Mozambique’s first President, Samora Machel, because of his role in promoting integrity. She stressed that Machel fought vehemently against corruption and defended a fair distribution of the nation’s wealth.

“He dedicated his life to building a public administration marked by integrity and transparency”, she said, “both through creating legal instruments, and through his vigorous speeches, teaching Mozambicans to be determined and persistent in the face of any obstacle to the development of our young nation”.

One of the rooms in the new building has been named after Machel, and Gemo declared “in this room, following the teachings of Samora, criminal prevention strategies and civic education actions will be developed, in order to promote citizenship, and the culture of transparency, integrity and good governance. Strategies will be aligned to establish confidence in the institutions of public administration and of justice, because, at the end of the day, corruption is a challenge within our reach”.

The Mozambican government has declared 2011 “Samora Machel Year”, in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the death of the founder of the Mozambican nation.
