    Press Release
    The Prime Minister, Dr. Marí Alkatiri, does not interfere in judicial independence
    Some political parties, through their news services, have published false information about the work of the justice sector. Particularly in the last few days, it was published an information that the Prime Minister, Dr. Marí Alkatiri, had ordered to stop the audit to the ZEESM, whose execution by the Chamber of Accounts had been requested by the Prime Minister himself.
    The Official Spokesperson for the Government, the Secretary of State of the Council of Ministers and for Social Communication, Matias Boavida, stated that "it is not characteristic of the Prime Minister, Dr. Marí Alkatiri, to interfere in the work of the justice sector, unlike others." "Any citizen who wants to know the truth behind this false information should confirm with the Chamber of Accounts" said also the Secretary of State Matias Boavida.
     “The audit to ZEESM and to others entities and public institutions are executed in an independent manner by the Chamber of Accounts, therefore the Government has no power to prevent them from taking place, "concluded the Secretary of State. ENDS
