Mozambique’s Central Office for the Fight against Corruption (GCCC) handled 906 cases of corruption, diversion of state funds and similar crimes in 2014, compared with 876 cases the previous year, according to Attorney-General Beatriz Buchili, delivering her annual report on the state of the justice system in the county, to the Mozambican parliament, the Assembly of the Republic.
Charges had been brought in 239 cases, Buchili, and 79 had come to trial. The total amount known to have been stolen from state coffers was 86.52 million meticais (about 2.6 million US dollars). This compared with slightly more than 90 million meticais known to have been stolen the previous year.
The investigations and trials led to the recovery of 11.45 million meticais, plus a building and a vehicle that had been illicitly obtained.
