Mozambique: Remembering Carlos Cardoso

    I feel the pain of the Cardoso Family. Meu marido Julião Nafital Macule foi atingido a tiro pela polícia moçambicana, enquanto dormindo na cama no Massinga Sport Club, na madrugada cerca de 03h00 de quinta – feira dia 8 de novembro de 2007.

    Como a polícia só começa a investigar uma pessoa de uma semana depois de terem morto e ele não pode conta como a razão pela qual ele foi morto num suposto república democrática no século 21 é uma acusação em Moçambique como um país e uma grosseira violação dos seus direitos ao abrigo A Constituição como consta do referido artigo.

    Especular sobre Julião credenciais do público post – mortem parece – me ser não só uma forma de evitar a assumir a responsabilidade por aquilo que é, obviamente, um acto de negligência grave e de incompetência por aquilo que é suposto ser uma das mais altamente treinados corpo policial em Moçambique, Mas uma acção por pessoas que estão perfeitamente conscientes de que eles têm flagrante violação constitucional inúmeros artigos em suas ações e em breve ter “quebrado a lei”.

    A questão é, será que os poderes de que se erguerem – se e ser responsável pelas acções dos seus agentes e trazê – los ao livro, ou será que collude com eles e continuar a recusas e encobrir?

    I feel Cardoso’s family pain. My husband, Julião Nafital Macule, was shot by the Mozambican police while sleeping in bed in Massinga Sport Club, around 03:00 AM on Thursday, November 8, 2007.

    As the police only begin to investigate a week after a person has died and they could not account a supposed democratic republic in the 21 Century 21 for the killing, as it is, obviously, an indictment in Mozambique as a country and a gross violation of their rights under the Constitution as given in its articles.

    To speculate on Julião’s credentials of the public post-mortem seems to be not only a way to avoid taking responsibility for what is obviously an act of gross negligence and incompetence for what is supposed to be one of the most highly trained corps police in Mozambique, but an action by people who are perfectly aware that they flout constitutional numerous articles in their actions and will soon have “broken the law”.

    The question is, will the powers that raised be responsible for the actions of its agents and bring them to pay for it, or would they collude with them and continue to denial and cover crimes?
