Italy to train Angolan fiscal police


A group of 18 fiscal police specialists will attend a training programme in July this year in Italy, under bilateral cooperation accords existing between the two countries.

The information was supplied to Angop yesterday in Luanda, by Italian ambassador to Angola, Giuseppe Mistretta.

Giuseppe Mistretta added that the specialists have been selected by the Angola Home Ministry and the costs of the training will be secured by Italy.

According to the diplomat, the course is a response to a request from Angolan authorities who want to build up the police operational capacity and improve their work quality.

The beginning of cooperation between Angola and Italy dates back to 1977, when the two countries signed a memorandum that established the Bilateral Commission, then called Ministerial Cooperation Commission.
